This is a labor of love two years in the making. I was tired of waiting for students to copy notes and strategies for solving problems from the board! It also wastes so much paper and they all just seemed to lose what they write! Based on the common core standards this is a "closed" guide in which students fill in the blanks as the lessons progress. Used during vocabulary, direct instruction, or as a tool for the room, this guide is meant to provide support to students throughout the year! There is a student guide, with the missing words, various supportive activities, as well as a teacher guide with all the blanks filled in. An excellent resource to send home to parents who want to help their children at home !
