Has anyone out there read this? I'm going to pick up the Diller Math Stations Book too. We only have an hour scheduled for math next year and it is at the end of the day right after recess. Yikes! I must not run over on recess time and will be fighting the afternoon slump myself!
Last year I started organizing my math games/stations by math strands. I used this drawer set from Target. They were actually only three to each so I took them apart to stack by four. I might go back and stack one more shelf per unit since my floor space is limited.

We play "Search and Find" or "Twenty Questions" with these words as you would with any word wall. Kids have to know these words to do well on state tests so we refer to them as often as we can.
Here are my "No Excuse" words for writing. They are the trouble makers as we like to call them. My kids are taught to use this reference to check spellings. If I find these words misspelled on papers, it goes right back to the writer with NE written in the margin by the line that includes the mistake. It's about accountability, kids!
So how do you handle word walls in your room? I'd love to hear!!
