My students absolutely love breakout activities!! I purchased a few from here and there and used some ideas I found online but none quite worked for my classroom.
This product is the first I created for my students that fit our needs perfectly!! The problems included are aligned to the 6th grade common core statistics standards and are great for a review or centers to check for understanding. This is how I made it work for my classroom, feel free to modify to meet your needs and let me know how you did! :) I will be making and posting many more aligned to all the 6th grade standards. :)

Any earnings are intended to be used in purchasing materials for my students.)They come in packs of 2 and were pretty inexpensive and work well enough. Just be careful when setting them, if you lift up during the combination setting process they are pretty much ruined! I also recom…
Hello fellow teachers! I have been working hard this summer to upload and update my products as well as create some new ones. I am planning to really focus this school year on using math centers and guided math. Enjoy this math center I created to practice finding GCF of two numbers.
I will be posting many others to practice additional skills aligned with my units. I have also been working to update my complete 6th grade interactive notebook bundle.
Individual unit bundles are also becoming available as I get organized. :) Thanks for following my store, please remember to rate my store for any products downloaded and I hope you have a wonderful school year!
I am gearing up for school! Seems like the previous school year ended yesterday. I spent yesterday laminating math center materials I scored for free on TpT and started creating a new foldable to review multiplication. I noticed last year that many of my 6th graders really struggled with basic multiplication. I spent time with them using several methods, including the traditional algorithm, area models, partial products, and the lattice method. This year I've decided to narrow it down to three and created a foldable page for it. I decided to go with area models, partial products and the standard algorithm. I chose these three because the first are so closely related and the standard algorithm is.... well...standard! :) I have posted it for free in my TpT store. I plan to use office mix to record myself explaining how to cut, fold and glue it in to notebooks. Then I'll record an explanation of each of the steps for students. This way they can complete this in a …
