Math Word Wall

The word wall is a great visual reference as explaining a Math lesson. It’s an informative wall that contains all mathematical terms studied so far and helps in retaining them.
 Several activities are done using the “Math Word Wall”.
Grade 3 students play a math game using the Math Word Wall. A student chooses a word from the math word wall and has to act this word; students have to guess what the word is.
 We also use this wall to attach the “Math Journal”. In the “Math Journal” students document what they are learning during a math lesson and write down the steps that helped them solve a math word problem or exercise.
Moreover, this wall contains a corner for the names of “Super Math Students”. This way motivates students to do their best to have their name on the wall.
