Wordless Wednesday & Worksheet Wednesday

It is a good thing it is summer, I am TIRED! 
I said it before, and I will say it again, it is tough being a mom. One of the things I learned about being a mom that I do not like is playing the role of the Tooth Fairy. 
I stink at it. 
I can say that I successfully fulfilled the responsibility last night, although I was discovered trying to sneak in the first time. Here is the picture of my middle son with his loot and his toothless grin! 

How old were you when you discovered the tooth fairy wasn't real? (Hope I didn't spoil the fantasy for any of you!)

I have another fun freebie for you today. I have seen lots of cute "Math About Me" activities for back to school, they are fun to do with the kids at the beginning of the year. 

I was inspired by all the cuteness and wondered how to make it more applicable for intermediate grades. So I created an activity building upon divisibility rules and multiples. I created a page called "Multiples of Me" where students will think of multiples from their life to add to the circles. 
Since I am joining the Instagram bandwagon, I included a "selfie" snapshot section and a place to add a picture of their favorite multiple. 

This activity will help students look at their lives through the eyes of multiples and also make the connection that numbers do not always fit in to one category. I think the activity will lead to some enlightening discussion (go math talk!) and "aha!" moments. Allow your students to be creative and you will have sheets that will make a fantastic display!
Thanks to The Teaching Tribune for 6 incredible weeks of Summer Bloggin'! I have enjoyed meeting new people, discovering new products, finding fun freebies, and making new friends!

  1. Hey Laura! I love your multiples of me project and anything that makes students think about math and the numbers in their life. Thanks for sharing! I'm also your newest follower from Oregon. :)
