Literacy in Maths - WHY it is so important?

I always quietly laugh when I hear students ask "why are we doing spelling in Maths" or "why does it matter if my spelling is wrong, it's Maths NOT English".  

I know I'm not the only teacher who hears this from their students and NOW I can show them why it can be a problem when they're older. I saw this sign on Wednesday and just HAD to pull over and take a photo.

So I ask you: What is wrong in the below sign?

10 x Co-ordinate, Graphing, Ordered Pairs Cards - 50% Off SALE

 As a year 8 and year 9 teacher I know how important it is for students to thoroughly understand co-ordinates/ ordered pairs. I often have students struggle and wanted an engaging, fun and rewarding way for students to practice their skills.

 I have created co-ordinate activity cards where students begin with an A4 print out, fold along line 1, complete their design and decorate it, fold along line 2 and then complete a literacy activity by writing a letter or card and giving it to someone else.

So far I have created 10 different designs ranging in difficulty level. The easiest design is the Christmas tree and aeroplane and the most challenging design is the Gingerbread Man and the Skull & crossbones.

I am working on 5 more designs at the moment to add to this collection for the same price. This set is 50% off for a short time so jump on in and grab yourself a bargain for your students.

Now after creating a standard ten frame set and a Halloween theme set, I realized that I have very few Easter themed items. I usually create a theme and a regular theme with all of my items, but one I knew I just HAD to do, was Easter Ten Frames! So simple yet so cute and effective.

Relaxing on Holidays & Back to School

I am sure you all know what the end of the school year feels like... Relief... Exhaustion... Excitement... Cleaning... Unit review and re-writing... Preparing assessment for the first term of the following year... Class lists... Timetabling... It gets VERY busy but now it's over and 6 weeks of holidays are here!
The first week was spent with Kylie from DownUnderTeacher, her son Brendan, my husband, Max my step-son and Caitlin (we are her guardians) at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.
Full of surfing lessons, bodyboarding, sun, relaxing, reading and most importantly, time together as a family.

Before we left we put up Christmas trees at both our home and at my Mums ('Grandma B'). Here is a photo of us together with Mums adopted Greyhound Tessa. We realized after this photo was taken that we were COMPLETELY blocking the Christmas tree! Oppppss....

Christmas Day was just beautiful and better than I imagined. I woke up still sick with tonsillitis so was feeling very average, but after relaxing at Mums with everyone I started to feel much better! :) Christmas Day we also had a good friend Maz join us for Christmas lunch. Caitlin and Max were also with us for Christmas day and present opening as was out blue-cattle dog Blackie!

Lastly my husband and I spent the other day 'fishing'... Well by fishing I mean throwing the line in, getting some sun, reading, relaxing and catching absolutely NOTHING! :)

Now its the time of year where I'm thinking about heading back to school! We have 25 days until students are back at school and 19 days until all teachers are due back for SFD. I'm in the middle of creating integer fast fact sheets along with more multiplication, addition and algebra fast fact sheets. It's great way to check for student understanding and for them to record their 'best time' and challenge themselves.
