Teaching math vocabulary with can be challenging at times. Need some ideas? Check out these four activities below!
Vocabulary Word Search Sheets
You can create word search sheets by going to Google and searching for “Word Search Generator”. You will find lots of free options to create your own word search for personal use in your classroom.
Vocabulary Memory Game
You can make your own math Memory game by writing out vocabulary words and definitions (or words and sample problems ) on separate note cards. You can also type out your information in Microsoft Word, cut out, and glue them on the note cards. Laminate the note cards for durability and yearly use.
Vocabulary Pictionary Game
You can create your own math Pictionary game by writing vocabulary words on note cards. Turn the deck face down. Students take one card from the deck and illustrate a picture of the vocabulary word. My students use dry erase boards; but students could also draw on paper. Pictionary can be played in whole group as well as in a small group station.
Vocabulary Match Up Sheets
You can create vocabulary match up sheets in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint. Type all the words on the left side and all the definitions on the right side. Students match up the words to the definitions.
