We are in one of my favorite units, Geometry. We were three or four days days in and we had done 5 pages in our notebook. We are cutting, gluing, and folding fools.
We made a foldable and added to it over several days.
Notes, are way more fun this way!
We sorted angles and I even gave them colored paper. They acted like it was Christmas. Obviously, they don't get much colored paper.
We studied triangles one day.
Quadrilaterals the next.
They had been given a lot of information within a short time frame. This was a fun way to check for understanding. Of course, I let them use their journals, that's what they are for, right?
We will be doing a few more things with angles, then taking a break for testing. (boo hiss)
Then, Christmas break! (Siss Boom Bah!)
I am excited about continuing this again in January because it is fun and a nice way to ease back into the second semester.
I also just wanted to show what we have been doing in our notebooks. We use them for EVERYTHING!!! One of my students called it the "Math Bible". We all chuckled, but that's how it truly feels, it holds everything we need to know about Math.
