### Notebook Set-Ups 2015-2016

This year I set up my notebooks pretty similar to last year's with some minor changes. For the covers, students used cardstock and a pre-made class label. They had to put 5 numbers that represented them. After they were finished, I covered them with some clear plastic covers I found at Five Below. It was kind of like laminating/contact paper in one, but much easier to work with and thicker. I had bought it hoping to make a cabinet dry erase when I discovered they were actually clear. That…

### Basic Factoring Notes

Ah yes, factoring. How my kids (for some reason) dislike thee. Whatever, we'll get over it ;) This term, for some reason, my classes have, as a whole, required different methods of teaching. They've needed more guided notes and I think it's due to many of my kids not having an Algebra 1 credit. Gosh, how important it is to have this credit! Anyways, here are my guided notes for four types of factoring :) I started off the lesson with GCF but this didn't have it's own guided notes sheet…

But, you'll likely end up scrolling back to the top to understand what you're looking at.) This year, I am taking a big risk with my Algebra 1 kiddos. I taught them to factor quadratic trinomials with a leading…

### Snow catch up part two

So today my kids were foldable overloaded. We had to make up for four lost days of curriculum. First, we started with a two step refresher foldable. The kids solved two step equations on the inside and explained in their own words how they arrived at their answer. Next, I found an awesome foldable online on teachers pay teachers. I think it is by far the best step by step foldable I have seen yet. Then, we worked out a few problems using the foldable. This led to the discussion of when the…
