Math Charts & Bulletin Boards
I love looking at other teachers' charts; I get so many ideas for my own classroom! When I visit other teachers' classrooms, I'm always trying to jot down great ideas for charts. Here are a couple of my math charts ...
My students fill in the info about faces/vertices/edges together after they explore geometric solid manipulatives in groups. Students have corresponding charts that they fill out as they pass the solids around. Within small groups they count the faces, vertices, and edges. Then they list real world examples of each solid. I've included my geometric solid investigation worksheet for download in the worksheet section.
Our group projects for the 100th day of school hang in the hallway. It was quite a challenge to brainstorm 100 places the students would like to visit. 100 questions about the world came comparatively easily. The students explored exponents for the first time while they came up with 100 mathematical ways to make a hundred. Several students enjoyed brainstorming 100 acts of kindness.
