Kindergarten Math Centers
I used math stations as a way to reinforce skills and give my students a way to over-learn math concepts in a fun and engaging way. YES! It is academic, but the students don’t know they are learning. If we had to skip math stations for the day, my students complained. It was a highly motivating time of the day.
I had “new” 10 math centers each week. Students worked with a partner at their math station. Now… there is NO WAY I could have 10 new math stations a week that were TOTALLY different. I would have had the life sucked out of me and I would have had to spend the entire time explaining the stations. Therefore, a few years ago I created some highly predictable math station activities. I kept many of the activities the same but switched out the clip art to match our themes.
As the year progressed so did the level of difficulty. The result? My students’ number sense soared and I was able to meet with my small groups.
With the different themes, you can use these centers throughout the entire year. This specific game can be played in multiple ways! Using the math cards, students can compare numbers, sort their cards by number, put their cards in sequential order, play Go Fish, or play Memory! Plus, there are I Can cards for each option so this game, along with the other centers, is independent for students.
Once the week’s theme was over, I would put some of these “paperless” activities in our early finisher tubs… AKA Dessert Tubs. They worked perfectly! You can read more about dessert tubs by clicking HERE.
Teachers love that these math centers are predictable and you don’t have to teach the math center each week! In the math station bundle, you get 21 different themes! That is over 160 math centers! Check out the bundle in my blog store:
