Algebra 1 Taboo

I am teaching during the intersession (my two week spring break).  I have to prepare 6 short lessons for a group of students that need to prepare for the Algebra 1 ECA (Indiana’s End of Course Assessment).  I was updating my webpage all day yesterday with blog posts that I want to index and came across Fawn Nguyen’s Taboo game.  I was inspired and started my own.  This is also my first attempt at putting something out there that I created.  I use and abuse a lot of other blogger’s creations so I figure it is only time that I start to share too.  Here it is:  A1E Taboo Vocabulary  (it is a word document…feel free to use/edit).

If you have any ideas of other words that need to be included, please leave me a comment.  I hope to print them tomorrow onto card stock.  I think I will have students create a Frayer Model for cards that they do not know.  I will update hopefully by the end of the week about how it goes.

    I just learned what a Frayer Model was about 2 weeks ago 🙂 love it for vocab! I throw it into notes in class sometimes now too. Like when we were talking about different types of quadrilaterals.

    Thanks, Emily, for sharing the Word doc. Andrew Stadel shared his with me too, so I’m hoping to make a set of “best of.”

    Brian Miller did Frayer Model with his kids before playing Taboo with them.
