Product Description
First, you need a math word wall that instructs and addresses the Common Core standards. But what if it could be interdisciplinary as well, showing that math is used in all areas of life? And what if students used it every day, avoiding the nobody-looks-at-it-wallpaper-death? Imagine no scramble toward the end of the year for standardized test prep because your kids have been mastering the curriculum all along.

***************************************************************************
I’ve been building such a resource in my classroom for years, and it works! Not only are the terms used with mnemonic devices, but a two-minute Mental Math game (included) guarantees that your word wall gets used every single day.

Students will learn and master the terms quickly because they use them to play. Each day, students will race for their set of cards when math starts. There are plenty of questions included to get you started, but soon you’ll create your own to suit the needs of your students. There are print-and-write worksheets as well as editable ones if you prefer to do your planning on the computer.

The word wall cards are to-the-point and engaging to the eye, but they are easy on your printer ink.

Here’s an example of how this might work in your room.

{You dictate to your students, who each have a set of 0-9 cards.}
Begin with the number of stripes on the U.S. flag.
Subtract the number that means “dozen.”
Add to that the number of feet in a yard.

You can easily adapt it to your classroom’s needs that day. For example, my kids had trouble remembering that one yard equals three feet. So for a few days I used this as part of the game. How many feet in 5 yards? How many yards does 6 feet equal? Soon the conversion became automatic. And no paper or prep was used. (And that means less correcting!)

The student number cards are colored so that correct/incorrect answers will quickly jump out at you, giving you valuable formative assessment. (To save printer ink, you can also print out the included black and white cards instead and have the students color them in. You’ll be amazed at how much the color helps!)

Vocabulary words include the following:
★ 187 Grade 4 Common Core math terms
★ 28 ELA terms, including numeric prefixes (Bi- = 2; Cent- = 100…)
★ 19 Civics and Geography terms (the number of judges on the Supreme Court; the number of Senators from each state; the age a U.S. citizen must be to vote; …)
★ 4 Science terms
(See all cards in preview.)

Blank templates for each subject are included so that you can augment to meet the needs of your own ELA, Social Studies, and Science Curricula.

Don’t let your Word Wall get ignored! Engage the kids in the easiest way possible and see the results!
