This week I worked on our district's math common course exams for second grade. One concern that came up repeatedly was the fact that many of our students are capable of solving the problems on these assessments, but the vocabulary can be a stumbling block. Since I am going to be working with students who need extra support next year, I started thinking about what I could do to help my kids increase their math vocabulary recognition and understanding. I have created a set of posters that define 12 key math terms in a bright, colorful format that will hopefully grab their attention. I plan to put these up in my room. I also have a set of flashcards to use with small groups or in. Check out my shop on Teachers' Notebook if you would like to download the posters.
