Good morning! As many of you know I am a lover of anything and everything to do with an Interactive Notebook (INB). I am here today to share one of my latest flippables with you that my students have recently.
We just finished up reviewing the four different types of angles as part of our Geometry Unit so we had to create a fun flippable to use as a resource.
When my students walk in the door, they know to grab what is laying out for them and as part of their bell ringer they cut out and prepare everything for their INB for the day. First things up, the page title and the I Can statement.
I always show my students a completed example so that they can see what it will be looking like when they are finished. They know not to start "decorating" because they never know what the directions will be for the day. (Today's directions given at the end were to draw an item that has each given type of angle: heart- acute at the base, right- house at the base, clock- the hands are in an obtuse angle, flag pole- the pole is a straight angle).
Next up, it was time to match the definitions to each flap. I let my students work together on this and gave them a few minutes so that I could walk around and hear their conversations and how they were justifying it within their group. Hearing them using mathematical terms makes my day.
Next it was time to start creating our examples. I gave each student 4 stars in three different colors. They were to create an example of each angle and then label the angle according to their sticker color names. You can see this is angle BGR (blue, gold, red).
After the students went through and created their angles and placed their stickers, I had them check a neighbors. More mathematical talk that made me swoon.
The last part of this flippable was when I passed out the protractors. Each student had to use their protractor and write a complete sentence demonstrating why the angle that they created for each flap was that particular type of angle.
When they were done, I let students go around with their protractors and measure various things in the room and stick a small Post-It in that spot that labeled the measurement of that angle. I even had some that were adventurous and asked for my painters tape and made their own angles on our tile floor.
This Flippable, and many more, are available with all of the resources in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
I hope you have a great day and I can't wait to share another math adventure with you next time around here on All Things Upper Elementary!
