Wordless Wednesday: Math with Markers!

 With the end of the year NEARING (woohoo), I have been getting pretty creative reviewing strategies students are struggling with. They absolutely love COLOR and so do I....so why not liven up our math strategies? Order of Operations with multi colored "PMDAS" was adorable and helped them to separate the steps AND it also helps students with "seeing" how place value is important with multiplying two-digit by one digit numbers.

Okay, I broke the rules.


What Math strategies are you using to 

support struggling learners?


How do you use markers in Math?

Do not forget to link up!!


  1. I use a lot of anchor charts to help my struggling students. Today my first graders are learning to regroup and we used the phrase more on top no need to stop, more on the floor go next door and get ten more, numbers the same zeroes the game. These little rhymes/phrases help my students focus and understand the concept. Love your marker idea!

    1. I love the little songs...I have a few learners that would love them! Do you have a tpt listing for them? If not, would you email me the lyrics/melody?

      Thank you for posting!
