"Where's my math warm-up? I know I printed it yesterday?" Does this sound familiar? This was me before I streamlined my math warm-up life with templates so that I could focus more on the meat of the day's lesson. In this post I want to share with you how I use math templates and link you to this free Algebra 1 template. I recently added to the template's file with a link to a Google version that can be assigned online if students are working remotely.

Above is the original Algebra 1 template. Since making it, I have added a lot to the file, including full-page versions that can be put into page protectors and used over and over again to save paper and also a Google version that can be assigned to students if they are working remotely.

I added this Google version recently if you are teaching remotely or would like to assign the template to your students online. So how do I use these math templates? When students come into my room, they know to grab a template from the basket I have at the front of the classroom. Shining on the front board is either an equation or a graph and my students then know that they are responsible for copying this down and filling in the rest of the template. I give either a graph or an equation and ask students to complete the rest. I use an Algebra 2 template a lot because it covers all of the skills I want my students to keep sharp. You can find all of my free math templates in this post: Math Templates.

If you would rather give paper copies instead of the Google version, I included a few 1/2-page and full-page options. This one above is a 1/2-page option with some work space on the side.

Warm-up templates are working so well in my classes that I started making more to use throughout our units. You can see and download all of the free math templates I have made so far from this post: math templates. Warm-ups are really important for my students to get them into the mindset of learning for the day, but they had been driving me mad. I hope that if you are looking for a way to keep your daily warm-up but also make it easier on your, you find this post helpful.
