## Description

Looking for differentiated math centers? Then you are in the right place. This set of math read-aloud responses and math centers coordinate perfectly with the math books written by Stuart Murphy.

**HOW TO USE THIS SET OF MATH ACTIVITIES:**

Read the Book then ask students to demonstrate understanding with the enclosed response page.

Add the differentiated math centers to your classroom activities. You can decide which activity to use based on your students’ and classroom needs.

**HOW MANY PRACTICE TASK CARDS ARE INCLUDED IN EACH MATH CENTER?**

One thing I love to offer students is plenty of practice. That is why most of the centers I create offer 9-12 task cards for each center. I want students to have a LOT of practice. I also want to be sure students have enough to last the entire center rotation time. Nothing strikes fear in a teacher like the expression, “I’M DONE!!” (hehe)

**WHY TEACH MATH THROUGH STORIES?**

Teaching math with stories and books allows students to visualize the concepts. They are able to really see the math and understand how it works. These stories allow students to make math connections to their own lives. Additionally, when students see themselves in the stories they read, they are more likely to retain the concept… oh… and these books are fun!

**WHERE CAN I FIND THE MATH STORY THAT GOES WITH EACH CENTER?**

No, the books by Stuart Murphy are not included in this purchase. However, these books can easily be found in your school library or public library.
