What Teachers Are Saying

My Favorite Items to Use with this Math Lesson

  • Bright Paper-I love using bright paper in the math journal because it makes it seem more special than a boring worksheet and it’s fun to color code by domain. Blue for Multiplication, red for fractions, ect. The Astrobrights Color Paper is my favorite!
  • Erasable Pens-Erasable pens are amazing! I love using the different colors in my teacher math journal as I share steps and examples with the class. I previously used the Flair brand pens but hated making mistakes and the hassle of whiteout. The Pilot Frixion Erasable pens work great and are a must in any math class.
  • Paper Cutter-Not sure what I did without my paper cutter. It saves so much time and keeps everything straight. I like to pass out the parts of a lesson one at a time, so nothing gets lost. Often, I’ll cut the pages of the journal up first to make it easier and more efficient for the class. This paper cutter is cute and just the right size for a classroom.
