Lately in my TPT Store, I have been attempting to branch out. I have many items made for 7th grade mathematics, but felt that I needed more of a variety to attract more followers and generate a healthier revenue base. I have searched for new and inventive ideas, but mainly have tried to stick with what I know has worked in my actual classroom. My students enjoy task cards (whether I paste them around the room or have them complete them individually). They enjoy scavenger hunts (something I need to do more of)... nd really enjoy competing with each other in games. I have incorporated these ideas into many of my products.

Here are some of my creations that were not designed for 7th grade.

In this product, you will find 27 task cards aligned to 5.G.1 and 5.G.2 , graphing in the coordinate plane. It includes that game board so that it can be used for a cooperative learning activity, but it also includes a student answer document for a more traditional approach (or when you don't want students to play the game).

This product contains 16 task cards aligned to 4.MD.2, measurement conversions in real world situations. It contains a traditional student answer sheet with a traditional answer key AND a student answer sheet and key that are geared towards 21st century technology enabled classrooms where students will use QR code readers to check their answers. This simple addition is all it took to get my students motivated.

### Geometry Foldables

My students are always looking for quick and painless ways to take notes / keep notes that are not handwritten and

In response, I have developed these foldables that I use in conjunction with their interactive math notebooks.

An easy way to differentiate these notes is through the use of underlining key terms for lower levels, whiting-out key terms for regular learners, or even "hiding" key parts for your higher level learners. Many times, I will wait until after the students have begun a task to distribute a few of the foldables around the room. This will quickly peak the interest of students who may be struggling with getting started, but it also motivates them to gain the information on their own in a meaningful way!

Each of my foldables are aligned to a specific Common Core Geometry Standard or a pair of correlating standards...Here are my bundles that I have created thus far:

This Geometry Foldables Bundle contains 8 foldables and is aligned to the 6th Grade Common Core Geometry Unit.
