#### Think Math: Answer is on the board, students write their question on sticky note and place it on their own student number. Make Circle Map- great way to differentiate. Could incorporate with Kagan Structures as well!

#### Think Math- The answer iis -every 3 or 4 days put a new “answer” on our class Think Math board. As soon as a new question goes up, students are write a question that matches the answer on a sticky note and place it on their class number (so keep track of who is answering) or use names?

#### Think Math: Answer is on the board, students write their question on sticky note and place it on their own student number. What an awesome multilevel idea! Except do it with technology and texting answers into a polling center or use edmodo!!

#### Critical Thinking Activities | Scholastic.com Every three or four days I put a new “answer” on our class Think Math board. write a question that matches the answer on a sticky note and place it on their class number. While this might seem like a relatively easy task for students, it takes several weeks of modeling and going over correct answers before the majority of students are able to correctly write number stories that match the answers

#### I absolutely LOVE this!!!! Definitely doing this for my 3rd grade math class this year!!!!

#### Critical Thinking Activities for Fast Finishers. Great interactive bulletin board ideas!

#### Reading in Content Areas #2- Reading is everywhere, even in the math classroom. This fun activity will get students using their brains and using literacy to learn math. A bulletin board will be created in the classroom that will only contain an answer to a problem. Each student will receive an index card, in which they will come up with a word problem that equals the answer on the board. The students will all pin their cards to the board and review each others problems.

Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a word problem that matches the answer.

#### Math Journal, Math Word Problem, Essential Question, Math Ideas, Math Talk, Math Board, Math Warm Up, Problem Solving Math, Word Problems

#### Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a word problem that matches the answer. You can have students do any operation or even 2 step problems. Students could start as soon as they come in for math, either on post it like the picture or in math journal...

#### Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a possible essential question to go along with it. I like this because it makes the students further explore the concepts we are working on.

#### Question and Answer board This activity has students write a words problem to a given answer. The student has to work backwards and really have an understanding of the mathematics. I could even modify and use this in first grade.

#### Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a word problem that matches the answer. This could be a wonderful lesson closer/formative assessment to check for true understanding. Could also be used to show there could be multiple correct answers.

#### Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a word problem that matches the answer. You can have students do any operation or even 2 step problems.Great way to differentiate and encourage creativity! Could easily change this to fit science and social studies.

#### Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a word problem that matches the answer. I'd do this as a weekly class thing that the students would have to complete whenever they had the chance (i.e when they finish a task quickly)

Student creating this has many benefits: it serves them as: a review of all year; can be made at quarters of the year; or as teacher sees a good review for it to be used as an addition to this journal, or used to add when the student has a good understanding of the thing being added. The point is to have a GOOD review of math for the year. It helps a student to SEE what they have learned; and is a great review at the first of the next yr. ...

You need as many Post-its as problems you will give, a Sharpie marker, and a pencil. Write the the first problem on the front of a Post-it note at the start (maybe this one is a different color). Now write the answer on another Post-it with a new problem on the underneath (in pencil). Students have to work problems and then search for the answers. Great way to get students doing math and get them up and moving!
