Quick Scientific Notation Cards

Here is a quick way to practice Scientific Notation with cards.  I'm going to copy them onto colored paper or card stock. Then I will cut them out and then laminate them with my wonderful Scott Laminator.

I have a small white mailbox in my room. You can click on the mailbox link to see it. I got mine from Oriental Trading. I have my students write me notes about things they need help with, want more practice, or if they need a change in their seating due to a problem with another student. Each note is addressed quietly and without "ratting" out the student.

Hence, the reason I'm doing this. I had a student who asked for more help with Scientific Notation and I wanted something quick to use. I'm hoping if they work with a partner then it won't take more than 10 minutes. 

I made 2 sheets so if can be done another day in the week to re-enforce that practice. I hope you find this useful and helpful.

Week 7 Clutter-Free Classroom Project

This week is all about your teacher bag. As you can see I have a "31" bag. The Clutter-Free Classroom site said to show your bag and tell the things that you like about it and the things you might want to change. I love my bag! It has lots of pockets- one I use for pens, pencils, highlighters, clips, school keys, and many many other things. I put my pens and pencils in zip lock bags so they don't bleed or mark up my bag.
This is the bag that I use!

This is the other one that I got.
Both of my bags together!
The contents of my bag.....Oh My!!
Closer look....

 There is only one thing that I would change about my bag- I would add a zipper pocket or pouch inside. This would help with the things that might fall out of the pockets- flash drives. 

What teacher bag do you use? What do you like about it? Can't wait to find out what is in store next....
