This product includes the resources you need to effectively use a MATH CAFE Bulletin Board in your classroom. There are 4 heading cards that are based off "the 2 sisters" math daily 5/cafe work, but I have changed them slightly so they better align with the standards. They include Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expand & Explain. I have included 57 strategy cards with 9 blank cards to write any additional strategies. Also provided is a teacher guide that separates all the strategies into their appropriate categories.
This bulletin board is an effective resource for students to use to help them solve problems. By teaching the strategies explicitly, making them visiable and available to students, and encouraging them to incorporate them when solving problems will improve students' problem solving abilities and deepen their conceptual understanding of math concepts.
I started working on this idea before "the sisters" had anything out for math. After learning about their literacy CAFE, and being a math person myself, I decided not to wait and made this myself. I have presented this at the NCCTM math conference and many people were requesting it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
