The upcoming school year is going to be a BUSY one, so I've been trying to get as many resources created as possible this summer. My current project is writing SBG quizzes for Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. So far, I've written 25 quizzes, but I have a zillion more to go. Still, this is the first time I've ever written quizzes ahead of time, so I'm feeling pretty proud of myself.
I was so excited about how productive I was being that I let myself work on something a bit more on the creative side: a problem solving strategies insert for my students to put in the front of their interactive notebooks. I have various problem solving strategies posted on the wall of my classroom, but I decided I wanted students to have a copy, too!
Each strategy has a small box to the left of it. My idea is that when I go over these strategies with my students as we put them in our notebooks that they will draw a small icon to represent each strategy in the box.

I've uploaded the editable .pub file and a non-editable .pdf file for you to use in your own classroom. I've also formatted it two ways: two to a page for interactive notebooks and one to a page for anyone who wants to use it with binders. If you download the editable file, you will need these free fonts: HVD Comic Serif Pro, Print Bold, and Spicy Rice.

The binder version is turned sideways in the file. Sorry about that!

Most of these problem solving strategies are included in this file to make your own bulletin board or wall display.
