Math Centres!

What a busy week!  We had a wonderful Peace Week this past week - I was so proud of all of my students for being peacemakers.  I heard them say to each other "I love your drawing", and "I'll help you clean up!".  I really think the message got through that we should always try to the best we can be, no put downs, tattle-tailers, or "meanies" (as we call them) in our class! 

This week we also started focusing on numbers to 5.  My goal is to have students become familiar with numbers to 10 by Christmas - recognizing the numbers both in order and out of order, printing the numbers, and showing me how many of that number using manipulatives.

This was a fun and quick matching game we played as a class on my whiteboard.  I made these number and dot cards with a magnetic backing.  The students had to come up, choose a number, tell me what it was and match the dot card to it.  So much fun!  They wanted to play all day.  I only introduced numbers to 5 but if you click on the link below you can have all of the cards to 10.

I had one centre where students used clothpins and clipped them on to the matching number card.  I bought these number cards at the Dollar Store.

I will be introducing a new centre game next week, All About Numbers, where students will spin the spinner and match the number card to their game card.  You can find this game and 4 other centre games in my newest resource,
Math Center Fun on Tpt! 

Also included are centre games using addition, telling time to the hour, shape recognition and coin matching.

Happy teaching!
