You need as many Post-its as problems you will give, a Sharpie marker, and a pencil. Write the the first problem on the front of a Post-it note at the start (maybe this one is a different color). Now write the answer on another Post-it with a new problem on the underneath (in pencil). Students have to work problems and then search for the answers. Great way to get students doing math and get them up and moving!

1: Ask students to gather any necessary review materials such as textbooks and class notes 2: Give each student a sheet of plain paper and six Post-it Notes. Students will also need a pencil. 3: Challenge students to create relevant quiz questions on each of the Post-it Notes, then stick them on the sheet of paper. Have students write the correct answer to each review question under the Post-it® Note. 4: Once the quizzes are complete,

Are you teaching division to your students? Here is a great way to start teaching long division. This template works well for 2-digit by 1-digit division. I would recommend laminating it so that students can write on it with dry erase markers and do multiple problems on the same template. The steps for division are included in the corner as a reminder.

Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a word problem that matches the answer. You can have students do any operation or even 2 step problems. I have my students check each other's questions the next day.

Math Challenge of the Week for sixth grade math students. Click on the picture to be linked to all of my Challenge of the Week problems in my blog. This one focused on finding the percent of a number. My 6th grade students really enjoy trying these every week! I post the problem on Monday morning and students have until the end of the day Thursday to solve them. We go over them on Friday!

Math Spoons - Teams of 3 or 4. Each S has a worksheet. Each team member has a letter. On a table in the front of the room are cards w/ answers to the worksheet's problems. There is one less answer card per problem than the # of teams playing. Teacher calls out a worksheet problem #. Ss have 2 mins to work individually then can talk to their groups. T calls out a player letter and that person goes to search for the correct answer card. They keep the card. Count the cards at the end for the score.

Students will work together in groups to answer questions on the card correctly. If they get the question correct, they get a point. They also get a chance to shoot however many baskets the card says. This activity gets all the students moving and working together as a team. It comes with 18 cards that are over ratios, proportions, unit rates, and percents. You do not have to have a basketball and goal to play this game.

Students will learn to count on from any given number. The worksheets start out simple and get progressively more challenging as you introduce larger numbers and students learn to count by 1's, 2's, 5's, and 10's.This activity aligns with Common Core Math Content K.CC.A.2 or 1.NBT.A.1. This is a set of 14 worksheets in all.

Discussion tables. Pick a passage from a book you are reading {read aloud, book club book, etc.} and glue it to the center of bulletin board paper and have the students write their thoughts about the passage and respond to their classmates. This Would also be cool for math problem solving!

The 3 read protocol is a useful strategy to teach students to think about what word problems are asking. It is a close read of a math story. Students analyze what is happening in a word problem. This strategy is highly effective for ELLs because of the visuals and analysis. The students create their own questions, so it is very engaging!
