Integers - Word Wall Freebie

I've decided to show you all a photo of one of my first word wall I used at the beginning of this year for my Year 8 Unit on Integers! I found that some of my students really struggled to understand adding and subtracting on a number line, and because this classroom is shared with other teachers I wasn't able to laminate a number line on the desk like I would have done, so I created a HUGE number line for their pin board. The border of this pin board is made from laminated off-cuts! :) Pretty and useful.

I printed and laminated key Mathematics words around the Integers topic and as you can see, below the images were either synonyms or students definitions of the word. I have done this for every topic since and have found it helps students understanding and saves them from asking questions that they can answer themself.

I have uploaded a much prettier version of these word wall words to TpT as a Freebie for you all!

I hope you have a wonderful day ahead of you! Here's a photo of some cutting up of laminating I have to do!  

Have a wonderful day! :)


  1. What a neat blog! I love math, and I love finding bloggers from other parts of the world. Thanks for stopping by my blog!


  2. Thanks Julie! I am so passionate about Maths and love seeing students have success in it! :)
    I find it amazing that we're half way through the school year and you're all just beginning! So when you're back to school, our kids cannot wait for the half-way-holidays! :)
