Do not use letters the first time you introduce variables to your students and never use the same variable twice in different problems on the first day or two!
Here are my top 5 Images to use as Variables on the First Day you Teach them what a Variable is!
- Shapes: Square, Triangle, ect...
- Stick Figures (My Favorite)
- Sports Balls: Basketball, Baseball, Football, ect...
