Math lessons tend to be vocabulary-dense. A lesson on fractions, for example, has to discuss numerators and denominators and may also go over equivalency, proper and improper fractions, and many other terms. These terms can be difficult to keep straight for students, so how can you help them? Quick-reference hand-outs that are costly to photocopy? Explaining terms every lesson, using valuable class time?

Instead, let Math Vocabulary Pictures™ cards handle the explaining for you! Each brightly-colored card features a different math term on the face, illustrated to look like its meaning, while the reverse has the definition in black text on a white background.

These cards are wonderful for your math word wall for general review, as well as for your visual learners, ESL students, and struggling readers since the illustrations quickly and easily create a visual connection between the term and its meaning.

All of the words are TEKS-specific terms, and now available in grade-specific sets! There are two sets per grade level (one set for Kindergarten) with 64 cards in each set (72 per set for 6-8 grade), all printed at 8.5” x 11” on coated card stock, durable and ready for display. $43/set for all grades except Sixth-Eighth. These expanded sets are $48 each.

Bundle and save!

We’re also proud to offer grade-specific bundles. Each bundle contains both Math Vocabulary Pictures™ card sets for the grade, plus either a set of our Operation Options™ posters (Kindergarten and First grade) or a set of Measurement Benchmarks™ cards. Operations Options™ are visual reminders to help give your students clues for the various ways to both add and subtract, while Measurement Benchmarks™ are illustrated cards to help your students become familiar with the most common units in both the metric and customary systems.
Kindergarten bundle, $49/each. First grade bundle, $89/each. Second-Fifth grade bundles, $99/each. Special Sixth-Eighth bundle, $108/each.

  1. Kimberly Carter

    I absolutely love the vocabulary cards. I started using these with ESL (3rd-8th) a few years ago. Now I use them with everyone.

  2. Becky Teague

    Love it! Great way to express the meaning of the vocabulary word in a visual way.

  3. 7th grade math teacher

    I like to use the picture vocabulary on my word wall. I refer back to it every time we use the vocabulary word. It is really helpful for my ESL students.

  4. Learning Magazine® Teachers’ Choice Award® product evaluator

    I love these! Tutors and basic skills teachers will want these in their inventory of teacher tools. Fun to use and don’t take much time for kids to learn. They make a great review for tests and quizzes, too!

  5. Learning Magazine® Teachers’ Choice Award® product evaluator

    I recommend this product to every teacher I know! This was by far my favorite product to evaluate this year. Both my students and I love these

  6. Jeanette Mercer, ESL program director, Aldine ISD

    These Math Vocabulary Picture Cards really help our English learners to remember the academic language. The teachers love them too. Vocabulary understanding is essential in tests. This product helps!
