__Identifying Real Numbers__**I begin the notes with Math = Love's Real number chart. I like it better than the circles, for some reason my kids get it better this way. Then we move into the matching activity in class. I use the one from the State of Virginia, but there is another on TpT in Jean Adams page. From here we do a sorting worksheet for homework and some of the graphing from the sheet for classwork. The next day we review and we then take a short quiz.**

__Adding Integers__**Most students struggle with this at the high school when they come to us from the middle school. I really make this my goal to make these rules stick. I make plus/minus tiles as a manipulative. The picture below shows an example of -3 + 5. By lining up the ones that cancel out, it is easy for students to see the answers. I also use the "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" song for integers.**
