FREE MATH LESSON - “FREEBIE Eighth Grade Math Interactive Notebook Scope and Sequence”

by Smith Curriculum and Consulting
8th Grade

Are you curious about what the Eighth Grade Math Interactive Notebook covers and if it is right for you and your students?

This FREE download is to help show you each of the activities as well as standards covered for each of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Oklahoma Academic Standards (OAS) for ease of use in your classroom.

As you can see, there are activities that while they align for Eighth Grade in one set of standards they are another grade level completely for other standards. I have left all of these lessons in the bundle for you rather than having separate items for each set of standards. You just choose which items to print and use in your classroom.

Each lesson comes with:
► Handy teacher reference page
► Any Frayer model vocabulary cards
► Printable items for Teacher Input and Student Output
► and Photos in the Online Photo Gallery for easy reference.

Each standard is addressed at least once in the interactive notebook and the Mathematical Process Standards are address throughout.

***Lessons highlighted in yellow will be coming by October 31st, 2017.***


You can grab the Eighth Grade Interactive Notebook today and get right on with using it in your classroom! You save 20% by purchasing the bundle over buying each unit separately!
