September LTF Training Cancelled
Upcoming LTF Lessons
There are so many great lessons as I look ahead in the pacing guides! I'm listing a few of my favorites, but I really had to limit what I'm pushing this month. Check your pacing guides for more options if you don't like these. Take time to try at least one this month!
6th Grade Honors: Shoeprints, Trapezoids, and Area (Digits Topic 13), Box it Up! (Digits Topic 14)
7th Grade Honors: Working With Formulas (Accelerated Digits Topic 12)
8th Grade: Negative Exponents (Digits Topic 4)
Algebra 1: Walk the Line (Unit 2- I usually use it at the end)
Remember I can make you copies if needed!
Literacy Strategy: Window Notes
- Window notes help students organize their thoughts when solving a word problem
Each window note has four sections: The Facts, The Steps, The Question, The Diagram
These four sections are not rigid. In the past, I have changed "The Diagram" section to fit what we are studying. For example, when solving equations I sometimes replace that section with "The Equation" and ask students to represent the problem mathematically instead of visually.
