Literacy in Maths - WHY it is so important?

I always quietly laugh when I hear students ask "why are we doing spelling in Maths" or "why does it matter if my spelling is wrong, it's Maths NOT English".  

I know I'm not the only teacher who hears this from their students and NOW I can show them why it can be a problem when they're older. I saw this sign on Wednesday and just HAD to pull over and take a photo.

So I ask you: What is wrong in the below sign?

10 x Co-ordinate, Graphing, Ordered Pairs Cards - 50% Off SALE

 As a year 8 and year 9 teacher I know how important it is for students to thoroughly understand co-ordinates/ ordered pairs. I often have students struggle and wanted an engaging, fun and rewarding way for students to practice their skills.

 I have created co-ordinate activity cards where students begin with an A4 print out, fold along line 1, complete their design and decorate it, fold along line 2 and then complete a literacy activity by writing a letter or card and giving it to someone else.

So far I have created 10 different designs ranging in difficulty level. The easiest design is the Christmas tree and aeroplane and the most challenging design is the Gingerbread Man and the Skull & crossbones.

I am working on 5 more designs at the moment to add to this collection for the same price. This set is 50% off for a short time so jump on in and grab yourself a bargain for your students.
