Expressions and Equations Scoot and Compute Pack. This set of 120 cards covers Algebra from Order of Operations all the way through Inequalities and Two Step Equations. There are 12 cards for each topic. I used them as a review when we took our big Algebra Assessment in early November. My students used the problems at my small group table with me, so I could watch their problem solving process, and formatively assess where we were with mental math computation. I copied one of each of the 12 sets on to colored paper and put them on rings. That way I could differentiate as needed. For some of my students that needed a little extra practice in one area, I combined the same colored cards and had them complete practice in one area before moving on to another skill. I'll pull them out again before our state assessment. It will be a great test prep tool.
Diane's Close Reading Pack for December. Diane's Close Reads are FABULOUS products! I love that they are full of science and social studies related topics. My class will love reading about Ice Hockey. It isn't a popular sport down here, and my class doesn't know much about it. Plus again, it is a great way to teach them about Grade-Level, versus Academic Vocabulary.
