PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Math Stations for Middle Grades is designed for grades 3 through 8. The resources in this ebook will make it easy for you to implement math stations or math centers in your classroom. Because it includes both enrichment and review activities on a variety of levels, the book is perfect for teachers who differentiate their math instruction. It contains management strategies and loads of math games to make math stations a snap. The book also includes blank PDF templates for the game cards and other other activities so you can create your own game content by printing them and writing on them. If you have Microsoft Publisher installed on your computer, you can also purchase a set of Customizable Templates to go with this book and you can type on those, change fonts, and modify them in any way. You may preview the entire ebook before you buy.

The price shown above is for a single classroom license. You can purchase multiple licenses at half price when you check out. If you would like an entire school to use Math Stations for Middle Grades, consider a school site license. This would allow the files to be stored on a school server where they could be accessed by everyone on site. Click the link below for details.

I'm disappointed that you gave this product a lower rating based on it not having area and perimeter because the product description says nothing about area and perimeter. This product is a guide for introducing math stations, and it's actually something you can preview completely online before purchasing. I actually have a product called Exploring Perimeter that you can purchase, and I have a freebie for Area and Perimeter called Island Conquer.

Product Questions & Answers

On  October 7, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Do you take purchase orders from schools? My assistant principal is asking. Thank you! Amanda Lindsay
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 7, 2013Laura Candler answered:
Hi!
Yes, I do, but they have to be for at least $100. I have site licenses that I sell to schools so they can upload the items directly to their servers, or if one teacher is ordering more than $100 worth they can use a PO. Go to www.lauracandler.com and search for the ordering information page. TeachersPayTeachers also accepts purchase orders and their minimum is $20. Apparently if you have an order for more than $20, you will see the purchase order option as one of your choices.

On  July 18, 2013,  Donna W. asked:
Good morning.

Have two questions regarding your Middle School Math Stations pack.
One, is it aligned to 6th grade common core? Second, when does the sale end?

Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 18, 2013Laura Candler answered:
The sale ends today. Also, it is not aligned to any standards because that's not the type of resource it is. It has strategies for how to set up centers and it has some suggested activities, but you'll have to make or purchase your own task cards to align the actual center activities with your standards. You can preview the entire thing online by clicking the Download Preview button on that page.
On  July 12, 2013Patti Whatley (TpT Seller) asked:
Have you aligned these with the CCSS?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 12, 2013Laura Candler answered:
This is not the type of book you would align with CCSS. It's a general information book about how to set up centers. The games are ones that you can adapt with your own problem cards to make them aligned with CCSS. I also have many math games in my store that are CCSS aligned. Just click the Common Core Aligned link in the sidebar. Remember that you can preview the book online before you buy it to see what's inside.

This looks amazing but too elementary in content for my many of my grade 8's. I need +-x/ fractions not comparing fractions for example. Any chance u have a similar product made for higher levels? Grade 6-9????
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 12, 2013Laura Candler answered:
No, sorry! However, you can modify the games and activities to include your own content. You can make up problem cards to go along with the activities that have 8th grade content, or you can buy task cards on TpT that have the content you want.
On  January 11, 2013Betta Math (TpT Seller) asked:
Your products are amazing. There are a few I am planning on purchasing once I have the money saved up. Do you have any suggestions about how to get my products "out there"? I feel that I have some good products, but am wondering if someone as successfull as you might be able to offer some advice. I would welcome any general advice you may be willing to offer me.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 11, 2013Laura Candler answered:
Hi! The best advice I have is to start visiting the TpT forums everyday and reading them. Post your questions there. Also, I highly recommend signing up for Charity Preston's course called Teaching Blog Traffic School. You can find out more about it on my website. Here's a link you can copy and paste to find it: http://lauracandler.com/filecabinet/teacherpreneurs.php It's a small investment that will yield huge rewards!

I teach 8th grade, and I am wondering how much of this is appropriate for my classes?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 27, 2012Laura Candler answered:
I would say that the basic concepts are very appropriate but you will have to modify the math games with your own math content. Did you know that you can preview the entire book online? Just click the Download Preview button and you can see everything in the book to decide for yourself if it would be helpful or not.

Yes, it's the Daily Math Puzzler program. You can purchase individual books or all 4 for a cheaper price. Here's the link for the combo purchase and from there you can find links to all the other individual books. You can preview them all online, too.

Is this price slash offer also good for the MS Publisher version? Wonderful ideas in your books. Thank you very much for putting all these together.

You can purchase this version at the discounted rate, and you can add on the Publisher templates for an additional $3.00. That makes them cheaper than the normal $14.95 price on my website for both items together.
