Bring sixth grade math to life with these big, color-coded, easy-to-use posters. The illustrations help my students understand sixth grade math concepts like ratios and proportions, number sense, fractions, expressions and equations, geometry, and statistics. Beyond the instructional benefits, what I really love about this poster bundle is that it has EVERY sixth grade math concept in one small file that I'll never LOSE!
These posters are color-coded by domain:
Number System - Purple
Expressions and Equations - Blue
Ratios and Proportions - Green
Geometry - Orange
Statistics and Probability - Red
The color-coding matches my 6th grade math vocabulary word wall and Common Core I Can Statements.
The large size makes them easy to see and well suited to projecting onto the screen. You can project them from the PDF file or you can put a printout under the document camera. Once a lesson gets started, I like to project a poster and have a printout ready for students who need something to focus on within their reach.

How I use them...
Hand-drawn anchor charts taped to the wall are awesome, but they have their drawbacks. No matter what wall I hang an anchor chart on, it isn't visible to every student in the room. Also, my handwriting is not all that terrific. On top of that, I have a hard time keeping track of anchor charts and finding the one I need when I need it. I lose them!
These posters have a few advantages over anchor charts. I can project one BIG to the screen in the front of the classroom AND print a few out for individual students or tables that need more focus. For example, if the topic of the day is finding the area of triangles, I'll project the corresponding poster. If a student or table needs more focus, I'll give them a printed copy. Sometimes, to save paper, I use Adobe Reader's multiple pages per sheet printing function to print out four posters per page. This comes in particularly handy when I need more than one poster for day's topic. For example, if the lesson involves ratios and finding area, I might need two or three posters.
In addition to helping students focus, the posters help me stay organized. Now I have ALL my 6th grade math concepts covered in one digital file. No more digging through stacks of anchor charts.
