Math Centers

Yesterday was the first day we got to math centers and the kids loved it!  I am so diligent about literacy centers everyday, so why is it so hard to get to math centers?  There are so many valuable learning activities that work well in math groups.  I know others are doing them as I see and yes, even purchase (imagine that:) math centers.  They are often even printed, laminated and even cut out. HA!

So this week my goal is to get to math centers on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  Wednesday is early release and Friday I try to get to an literature/art project in the afternoon.  I welcome any suggestions on scheduling and fitting it all in.

We are wrapping Chapter One with addition.  I have created and posted Ladybug Addition Mats on TpT.  You can check them out at my Teachers pay Teachers store.  I will be giving away 2 sets of them to the first 2 people to LEAVE A COMMENT here and FOLLOW my TpT store.

  1. I think this looks great! Our curriculum jumps around so much that I will definitely need some supplements to work on addition with my second graders.

  2. I would love a copy of your math center! I am trying to get centers going, but I have to gather some good activities! Thanks!

  3. Oops! I forgot to tell you I'm your #5 follower on your TPT! :)

  4. This looks like a wonderful center. I usually go a little over on my reading time, so I feel like I don't always get enough time for math centers. I've started setting a timer to remind me time is up!! That is helping!
