I have a Yacker Tracker. It is an electronic noise monitor that measures the decibel level in the room. It looks like a stop light and when it gets too loud, the siren goes off and it doesn't stop until the volume goes down. I bought it at Lakeshore Learning Center.

We adopted the curriculum 5 years ago...so it doesn't sound like the same version as yours.

There are MANY files and the fonts I used are DJ Inker fonts so they may come up funky on your computer, but if you send me your email I will send them!

The font is called Doctor Soos - it is a free download. Just Google it and it should come up!

Hi Kate,
I just love your Math Expression Vocabulary cards for Units 1 and 5. Do you plan to make more for the other units?

Thanks,

Hi Susanna,

It has been on my to-do list forever and I still have not completed any other units! As soon as I do, I will add them to my TPT site so keep checking back. Although I can't guarantee it will be soon - this school year seems extra crazy!!

I teach with Math Expressions as well and was wondering if you created vocabulary word cards for any of the other units? I can't wait to use these in my classroom!

I still have not! I thought I would get to all the units this summer and just haven't had the time! I will for sure post them as I get to them. My goal is to get each unit finished before I teach it!

Buyer re: Academic Vocabulary Word Work Form
Thanks so much for this! I was wondering how many words you give the students. How often do they use this organizer? And at what grade level? Thanks again. Great format.

Kate McDonald  (TpT Seller)
We teach 2-3 words per week. Not more than 1 per day though. So by the end of a week, each student would have used this form 2-3 times. I teach 3rd grade and we keep an Academic Vocabulary Binder where students keep adding new words. I hope that answers your questions!

Do you have the unit vocabulary cards for all of the math expression units? If so, can you email them to me. I am new to 3rd grade and I have never used math expressions before. The big thing that I know is that the vocabulary is a bit different. I would really appreciate anything you can give me to help.

I still have not finished up all the units. All that I have, are available in my store. Keep checking back - it is on my summer "to-do" list!
