These forms can be used to help increase students’ math engagement, involvement, ownership, and accountability. They also provide great repetition and practice for students. There are several useful ways to use them:
1) Copy enough double-sided forms for each student for the entire year, then insert into a 3-prong folder or binder for students to bring to math each day. This method is great for allowing students to compare and review work from previous days and also for the teacher to check their notebook.
2) Print one double-sided form for each student on cardstock. Insert into clear page protectors or laminate them. Have students write on them with a fine tip dry erase marker each day.
(Please let me know if you find others great ways to use them!)
*I often skip sections of the form each day, based on our time, lesson objective and need for practice. I designed them to supplement the Saxon 2 curriculum (I teach it in 1st grade, but many schools teach it in 2nd, and it could be used to support almost any math curriculum.)
