Here is how I made them:
Open a WTC game and choose print. There is an option that says "Full Page Slides". Click that and set it to "6 Slides Vertical". It automatically went to "frame slides". Framing the slides will give us lines to cut on. I printed the slides and laminated the pages.
|Cards printed and ready to laminate! I LOVE lamination!|
|Finished pictures getting glued on the note card|
|Card can slide out of pocket to "reveal" the picture!|
I made several sets with a variety of skills and added them to my independent math stations. My kids were SO excited to try them out.
This student was working on adding and subtracting multiples of ten. I reminded him to watch the number in the tens place carefully. He told me that he was just using the hundreds chart like a number line - finding the first number and then counting the rows above or below by tens because each row was worth ten. What a little smartie! I was so proud of my little mathematician!
To make these stations, I just used my Watch, Think, Color games. These games come in a TON of skills so it is super easy to differentiate instruction. You could even use different colored rings for different levels. Ooh! I like that idea! Oh great! Now I am going to have to go change my rings! It will be worth it! I also used library pockets from Creative Teaching Press and chicken rings.
Pretty soon, Baboon! :)
