Cut and Paste....and Some Fun for All!

Today was the first day of our personal financial literacy unit, and the students have some vocabulary that they have to memorize.  While we will be discussing these words throughout the week, I wanted the students to have them in their Math ISN.  But just copying the words can be soooooo boring! I made a quick and easy matching activity.  

Students cut out the words and definitions and used the textbook glossary to match them up correctly and put the page in their Math ISN.  You can see that some of my students just decided to leave the column of words and cut the definitions out separately.....good thinking and problem-solving skills at work!!!

Today, we focused on income and taxes, and students used this resource to help them determine which type of income or tax the given situations described.

Now onto the fun stuff....

Someone had fun at Dollar Tree this weekend....... :)

Some fun stuff for the classroom.....

Some fun stuff (and smell good stuff) for me.......

And some fun stuff for the students........ hello, treasure bucket!

I'm pretty sure I got a little carried away, but it was so worth it!!!  What kind of stuff do you like to buy for your classroom?

Have a great week everyone!
