The Start of Back to School Fun!

As the next weeks unfold, there will be lots of fun stuff going on in the blogging world!  To kick things off, my friends and I over at Upper Elementary Snapshots are offering up a series of back to school tips and freebies for you--and a pretty nifty giveaway as well!

A Math Workshop Tip from
The Teacher Studio!
Many students come into the intermediate grades with an already established "dislike" of math. Building a climate where problem solving is seen as fun and exciting is a key way teachers can make sure students are using their time well in math workshop--and that students are willing to shift their attitudes!  Balancing practice, instruction, games, and challenges makes sure students stay engaged and excited about math all year long.  Remember that exploration and discovery are just as important as getting a right answer--so put your students in positions to try talk about math, and to have FUN with math!  Check out this easy back to school multiplication game to use to build fluency and more.

It is even differentiated with two different levels. It has color pages to laminate like this--but also the black and white version if you don't have color ink.  ENJOY!
