This year, my students are working really hard to master their math facts. Each day, they take a 45 second test on a certain set of facts like +1, +2, etc.. If they pass the test, they get to move on to a new test for the next day. To make this easier for me to keep up with and to show my students their growth, I made a bulletin board using colorful paper plates.
I put my students numbers on the board and when they pass, I just move them to the next plate. They love to see themselves move up and I thought this was a perfect way to use some extra paper plates that I had in my classroom.
