Some Math Organization

Some math organization linked to 

Geoboard Work. Always a center, depending on the skill they make numbers, shapes, patterns.

Simple bean game from the beginning of the year. There are sooooo many things you can do with this to adapt it.

I have TONS of printable games. 

Unifix cube center (early in the year) working on counting, adding, subtracting, making patterns.

Same for pattern blocks. This was early in the year when we worked on matching pattern block patterns.

I have TONS of graphs that coincide with the season/theme. Graphing, adding, counting, how many more, how many less, etc.

I have lots of dollar tree sorting items, again, all thematic. Later in the year I have the kids fill out a 'data' sheet based on how they sorted.

This is from the games center. Various games based on theme.

Check out makinglearningfun.com She has tons of printables for math and literacy.

Estimation station. This is almost a daily center. The kids guess how many of a certain item is in the plastic jar and the items are counted out w/ the help of a 100's chart.

Another printable from makinglearningfun.com Roll the dice, add the two numbers together, write it on the reindeer tummy.

From Deanna Jump. I do these whole group or in our math journal.

A Math Their Way game that I adapted for Valentine's.

Little/Big dice game.

Roll 3 dice and put them in order from greatest to least.

Organization for my sorting, counting, patterning supplies.

100's chart work using colored markers. The kids LOVE this.

  3. Thanks for sharing your ideas. It is nice to get some new life into some old ideas. I was wondering what the Bean Game was. Is it a simple as matching the numbers with the corresponding amount of beans?

    Thanks again

  4. Thanks Jen for the info on the bean game. I am going to try it when I get back.:)

  5. LOVE the little/big dice game and ordering 3 numbers - great idea!
