Mathbook Bulletin Board

Sunday, September 23, 2012

My 5th graders have been working so hard for me so I wanted  them to show off what they were learning. I decided I wanted my bulletin board in the hallway to put to good regular use. I've never known exactly what to do with it. I decided to make a play on the Facebook bulletin boards I've seen on Pinterest.

How did I do it?
I made a "Mathbook" bulletin board. I used poster board and hand drew the symbols in black sharpie. Then I used regular copy paper to cut out the letters trying to match a facebook-ish font. Then I took card stock and cut them at 8 1/2 inches a piece. I had some volunteers cut and laminate them for me. (Thank you BB volunteers!!) I also copied the Facebook Like symbol with the word Like next to it on blue paper. These were also laminated.

How exactly do I use it?
Students can pick a new spot every week. I figured this would be better than assigning a spot. That way every student dependent on their height preference could pick a spot on the board. Students write down what they learned that week, show an example problem, brag about their test score, and etc. If I like what they say then I use a "Like button" simply by stapling it with one staple. It's easy to take off the next week. Students use the card stocks to write on with black dry erase markers. I have found color doesn't erase as well. Then students can erase a card and rewrite it on the next week after their test. It's a great way to show off what we did that week as well as an awesome use for an exit slip.

Playing catchup. In the future I will have tips here, for now..you will know what skill we are practicing and for how long. I also hope to be converting my list into categorizing it by common core standards. Common core standards will not completely be implemented for 5th Grade Math in Tennessee until the 2014-2015 school year so it will be a work in progress. Thanks for your understanding! In the mean time, enjoy the categories by the nine weeks we study them in.
