Thank you for your interest in this product!
Literacy in Mathematics is an essential skill. Math Literacy is not only the ability to use numbers to help solve real-world problems, but it is also the ability to understand the “language” of Math.
Students need to not only perform computations, they also need to understand WHY they are performing the steps and be able to communicate this understanding with others.
FRACTIONS - Vocabulary Math Center
This resource was created to broaden the understanding of Math language. It requires students to understand the vocabulary terms associated with a unit of study, as well as to explain WHY the vocabulary word is relevant to a particular Mathematical situation. This product would be ideal as a Math center when a new unit is introduced, and it compliments the use of word walls.
This activity includes 6 Mathematical situations for students to read in small groups. Then, the students must decide which of the vocabulary terms are associated with the situation, and finally explain their choices on a recording sheet. Each situation card requires the use of multiple vocabulary words.
FRACTIONS - Vocabulary Trios Math Center
This resource was created to broaden the understanding of Math language. It requires students to understand the vocabulary terms associated with a unit of study, as well as to identify what it would look like (an example). This product would be ideal as a Math center when a new unit is introduced, and it compliments the use of word walls.
This activity includes 30 “trios” cards, which consist of a vocabulary card, definition card, and example card. The students must make 10 trios sets, record their choices on a recording sheet, and complete the extension activity.
FRACTIONS - Word Wall
Literacy in mathematics, as with most subject areas, requires the ability to read, think critically, analyze and communicate understanding. One of the building blocks of being able to communicate understanding is having the necessary vocabulary words. Word walls are a great way to keep the vocabulary words accessible to facilitate effective communication!
I created this product with literacy in mind. Each vocabulary word is printed on individual cards in a fun, yet clear, font. Clipart was intentionally not included on the vocabulary cards so as to keep the focus on the language of Math, as well as to keep the cards appropriate for most grade levels. A poster is included (with clipart) to organize vocabulary words according to the unit of study.
