Prime Numbers - Math Help

In my classrooms I always have a 'Mathematics Wall' where I have all sorts of 'Maths Help' displayed - Definitions of terms, puzzles, problem solving approaches, interesting facts about Math concepts and heaps of other mathematical stuff.

Each year I tend to quickly write the information onto sheets of paper and blu-tac them up. This year I'm planning to make the posters look a bit more attractive and so here is the beginning of the new project 6 printable posters that cover some of the basics of prime numbers.

lf you find the resources useful feel free to email them to your friends.

Graduation Poetry

Here is a poetry scaffold that you can use for the graduation ceremony of an elementary / primary school. Just take the poem and use it as a model and then ask the students to alter it to fit their school community. Add / Delete / Modify / find 'better' words / change the poetic devices etc, etc.

I'm thinking that this will save a heap of heartache as a poem like this can take ages to write from scratch.
