2. A New Approach to Parent-Teacher Conferences
This structure for conferences comes from the most incredible middle school teaching team I've ever met. We loved this format because the entire teaching team prepares the teacher forms, the student does a self-evaluation, and then the student leads the conference. The homeroom teacher is a guide and support and represents the entire team of teachers. The "teacher" and "student" evaluations offer an easy way to compare perspectives and set goals for the next quarter. I've put together a little video showing how to use the forms.

3. Halloween Math: Integers & Absolute Value or Fractions, Decimals, and Percents
Do your students need a little extra practice with converting between fractions, decimals, and percents? This cut-and-paste puzzle is available on TeachersPayTeachers for the fall season. It's perfect for Halloween or for that last day before Thanksgiving break. Click the images to check it out.
Or, if your kids need a little review of absolute value and adding and subtracting integers, try this version. The pumpkins are made of equivalent expressions. This set even has handy "check words" that appear when each pumpkin is assembled correctly (ghost, skull, witch, etc.) for easy grading. Click the image to check it out.
October is also a great time to get started with slope and graphing. Check out the slope & linear equations bundle, too. Happy fall!
