First, you need a math word wall that matches the Common Core standards, right? But what if it crossed all subjects? And students used it every day, avoiding the wallpaper-invisibility-death? ✨Imagine no spring scramble for test prep because your kids have been acing the curriculum all year.✨


Other teacher LOVE it!

❤️"What a great resource! This is exactly what I needed last year so that the word wall was less of a decoration and more of an actually useful element in the classroom."

❤️ "I've been searching for a high-quality math word wall with pictures, and this is everything I want and more! The mental math game is brilliant and I can't wait to try it out with my students this year."

❤️ "A great resource! I am so glad I made this purchase! I am able to print as we go, and my student's interact with it on a daily basis."


I’ve used this in my classroom because it works and saves time! Not only are the terms used with mnemonic devices, but a two-minute Mental Math game (included) guarantees that your word wall gets used every single day.

Students will learn and master the terms quickly because they use them to play. Each day, students will race for their set of cards (cards included) when math starts. There are plenty of questions included to get you started, but soon you’ll create your own to suit the needs of your students. There are print-and-write worksheets as well as editable ones if you prefer to do your planning on the computer.

The word wall cards are to-the-point and engaging to the eye, but they are easy on your printer ink.

Here’s an example of how this might work in your room.

❶{You dictate to your students, who each have a set of 0-9 cards.}

❷ Begin with the number of stripes on the U.S. flag.

❸ Subtract the number that means “dozen.”

❹ Add to that the number of feet in a yard.

❺ Show me your number!

You can easily adapt it to your classroom’s needs that day. For example, my kids had trouble remembering that one yard equals three feet. So for a few days I used this as part of the game. How many feet in 5 yards? How many yards does 6 feet equal? Soon the conversion became automatic. And no paper or prep was used. (And that means less correcting!)

The student number cards are colored so that correct/incorrect answers will quickly jump out at you, giving you valuable formative assessment. (To save printer ink, you can also print out the included black and white cards instead and have the students color them in. You’ll be amazed at how much the color helps!)

Vocabulary words include the following:

★ 187 Grade 4 Common Core math terms

★ 28 ELA terms, including numeric prefixes (Bi- = 2; Cent- = 100…)

★ 19 Civics and Geography terms (the number of judges on the Supreme Court; the number of Senators from each state; the age a U.S. citizen must be to vote; …)

★ 4 Science terms

(See all cards in preview.)

Blank templates for each subject are included so that you can augment to meet the needs of your own ELA, Social Studies, and Science Curricula.

Don’t let your Word Wall get ignored! Engage the kids in the easiest way possible and see the results!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36),...
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and shortest specimens in an insect collection.
Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement:
