Centers Part 2: Math
I have 7 Math Stations. The kids BEG to do math stations. I think they love the independence.
Station 1: Manipulatives. Here, I put any manipulatives I feel the kids need more exposure to. Currently, they are working with money... and since money isn't a Common Core Standard- who knows why?!?! they are adding money. I feel like money is a life skill and I'm not about to let it go by the wayside... so we just double up and do money and addition. Here-they are using magnetic coins. I've also put linking cubes, counters, dice, pattern blocks, geoboards, etc. If you can manipulate it, it's here!
KindergartenWorks. (Thanks, Leslie!) I also have a stack of work mats that I got from F is for First Grade (Thanks, Melissa!) that I keep at the table for the kids to work on in case I have to leave the station to help someone. I put them in clear page protectors so the kids can write on them with dry erase markers.
Up next... LITERACY CENTERS.
Don't forget- I love comments and followers! :)
