Teach the Vocabulary of Math

Students today are faced with Common Core State Standards that set the bar higher than ever before.  Now, more than ever before, it is important to teach the language of math so students can be successful showing what they know on the standardized tests they will face each year.

My fourth grade team had an "ah ha" moment when we focused our data team work on improving math vocabulary.  We gave a pre-test and realized many of our students did not understand what we considered common knowledge for words like "row" and "column".  These words were essential to solving math tasks and we set to work to improve our teaching.

I created math posters that have been INVALUABLE!  The posters are posted at the top of the room and are visible from all the way across the classroom.  We refer to the vocabulary posters with examples constantly during math instruction.  It's simple to point to and look at the poster and you will notice your students use them all the time.

The post and slideshow sets help my students achieve tremendous growth on their yearly math exams.

I created two versions of math poster sets:

  • One set includes posters aligned the CCSS-M with extra supporting words included.  
  • The other set in more interactive and in PowerPoint slideshow format so you can choose a word and have it be the "Word of the Day".  The slideshow set also includes the printable posters.
BIG SALE!
On Cyber Monday & Tuesday (December 2 & 3) both versions of the poster sets are on sale for 20% off AND Teachers pay Teachers is giving an ADDITIONAL 8%.  All of the sets allow you to purchase licenses for your teaching partners for half off!  Now THAT'S a deal!

You won't find a better price on this mega set packed with content!
