Made 4 Math Monday #8

Week one is done and honestly, it kicked and punched me around quite a bit! On our first day with kids, I was so worn out that I came home and took a 3 hour nap! This weekend was a flurry of getting things ready for my night class and finalizing my lessons for my high school classes. Needless to say, you will definitely see a change in this week's #Made4Math based on what I needed to make for my classes :)

My #Made4Math this week is devoted to my Notebooks.

Project #1 - The Table of Contents
I've seen many ToCs out there, especially now that INBs have become so popular! However, I wanted one that could fit easily into the notebook without too much cutting. One of my science buddies had learned about INBs last year at our AVID training and she was kind enough to share her ToC with me, but it was in Excel and honestly, I'm majorly stupid at Excel. So I made this one in Word:

What I love about it is that it makes a mini-booklet so there is no cutting involved!

Project #2 - The Rubric
That same science teacher friend was very generous to share her grading rubric with me. I hate to grade and it flat out scared me to think about grading tons of notebooks often. She has her students peer-grade the notebook, with the rule that someone different must grade your notebook each week. Then they bring the notebook up to her for her to record the score. I took her files, tweaked them a bit and made them into a half sheet:

Project #3 - The SBG Tracker
One of the things that I loved in many of the notebooks I've seen is that students keep track of their scores. I had made something for this back earlier this summer, but I wasn't crazy about it. Enter in my awesome Algebra 2 co-conspirator and an awesome score tracker she made. I again tweaked it, putting it on the inside of a mini-booklet, then the SBG grading scale and reassessment rules on the outside.

What I love about this is that student scores are kept private when doing the peer grading!

So there you have it... not the most creative #Made4Math that I've done, but definitely a very necessary collection of "need to make" for me.

Your Turn!!! What did YOU make this week??

I LOVE these resources!! What does "stamps" mean on the INB rubric you posted? I'm new to notebooking and your resources are SUPER HELPFUL!
