WHY TEACHERS USE MATH CENTERS Math centers are used as a way for students to “overlearn” various math skills. During math centers, student practice kindergarten math skills that they have already learned. Each math center in this series follows the same format. In this way students play familiar games each week, but the change in theme keeps the engagement high!
WHY KINDERGARTEN TEACHERS LOVE THESE MATH CENTER ACTIVITIES:
✓ The math center activities are predictable!
✓ Teachers do not need to reteach the math center activity each week!
✓ The change in themes from unit to unit make it feel like “A brand new game!!!” Even though the math center is essentially the same.
✓ Teachers are able to spend time with their small groups because they don’t need to constantly monitor the student centers. Their kindergarten students already know what to do!
VARIOUS USES FOR THIS KINDERGARTEN MATH CENTER:
Use it as a math center:
I like to put two students in a math center. This allows each partner many opportunities to practice. PLUS waiting your turn in kindergarten can be a challenge. Because I have 12 math centers going on at one time. I do not worry about students growing tired of the same math center.
Use it as a whole group activity:
These games and centers are fun to play as a whole group. Often times we would have a few minutes of time before lunch or before the buses came. I would simply grab on of these math centers and we would play them under the document camera.
Use these math centers in your small group:
These are great warm up activity when you are working with your small group! Spend 5 minutes playing one of these games and your kindergartners will be engaged and ready for new learning.
Use these as independent practice:
Some parents request homework that they can have their child do. I prefer to send a fun math center game home. Many are played with just a die, so they are easy for parents. Your kindergartners will love it and it won’t be a “drill” type task.
Use these as an early finisher task.
After the center is use in our math center rotations, I liked to place them in our “dessert bins.” Students can go back and revisit some of their favorite math activities. STILL HAVE QUESTIONS???
