Freebie! Prefijos de los números

Hi everyone,
As teachers we know how important it is to have a firm understanding of prefixes. Research shows the importance of building students’ vocabulary. When students learn and review prefixes they see relationships between and among languages. Many prefixes have a basis in Latin – also the basis for Spanish. Unknown words or new vocabulary can be figured out by students when they use their knowledge of prefixes.

That being said, check out this great freebie:


This 27 page game packet increases your students' abilities to identify number prefixes in Spanish and gain meaning of unfamiliar words through play. By playing the 3 games included in PREFIJOS DE LOS NUMEROS students become familiar with these great prefixes. They learn that simply understanding and recognizing number prefixes can help them interpret the meaning of unfamiliar words, both mathematical and non-mathematical. This game package includes black line masters for:
-Bulletin board number prefix introduction sheets
-Game board
-Game cards
-Flashcards
-Concentration cards.
-A variety of games
-Assessment
-Activities to send home
-Easy to use teacher's guides

All the Common Core Math Vocabulary Resources you need!

Hello everyone,
I was searching the web recently and found an awesome site for Common Core Math Vocabulary.  

Granite School District in Utah has some of the best resources for Common Core Math Vocabulary and they are ready for you to download and print for FREE!




They have a great website that includes vocabulary cards that are kid friendly.  Each word has 3 cards. The first is the word only, the second includes a graphic representation, and the third also includes a definition.

This site is packed with resources for building math vocabulary including
 games such as this one:

Talk a Mile a Minute

Materials: Word lists, timer Instructions:

1. In this game, students are given a list of 6 words that have been organized into categories. One player will give the clue words while the other player tries to guess the word on the screen within a 60 second time limit.


2. Divide the class into pairs. Player 1 and 2 sit together facing each other. One player faces the screen and the other player has their back to the screen.


3. The player facing the screen will be the “talker” and is provided with a list of words on the screen. The talker tries to get their partner to say each of the words by quickly describing them. The talker may not use gestures, rhyming words, or any variation of the word on the list.


For example, in the first list below, the talker must not say the word shape when giving the clues. For the word square, the talker might say something like, “It has 4 equal sides, AND 4 equal angles.”


Shapes
Rectangle Square Circle Triangle
Right Triangle Trapezoid
Units of Measure
Inches Meters
Gallons
Hours Square Yards
Liters


4. The talker keeps giving clues until their partner identifies the first word in the category. The talker then moves to the next word in the category until all words have been guessed the set time ends.


5. Players change places and a new round begins with the other player now designated as the talker. 


If you are looking to add to your instruction of Math Vocabulary...this great site has it all.
