Spanish Reflexive Verbs

We are learning about reflexive verbs in Spanish.  This can be a somewhat odd concept for English speakers as we do not necessarily have reflexive verbs in English.  We have been doing several practice activities and I want to try and help students write sentences that have all of the pieces they need.  We worked through a fun sentence unscramble activity and then did some drawing and independent sentence writing.  I think they're beginning to grasp the concept! I'm including the sentence drawing activity we did here, click HERE to get a copy.  If you'd like to check out the sentence unscramble activity we did, click on the image for more details!

Factoring the GCF in Polynomials

AHHH, polynomials!  You've got to love 'em.  We've been working our way through parabolas and quadratics in my Algebra 2 class and in preparation for solving quadratics we are learning how to factor.  Of course, we started by factoring the GCF from polynomial expressions.  I created a few tic-tac-toe game boards for factoring the GCF to give the students a more fun way to practice and thought I'd share them with you all!  Click on the image to get the game boards!  Enjoy!
