Dear Wonderful Teacher Friends,
I have created this fun, hands-on Math Unit with Centers that are February themed. While this unit is designed with 4th graders in mind, it is also perfect for challenging 3rd graders or supporting 5th graders that need some intervention and review. This set of Centers includes up to 8 Common Core Aligned math games! Each game is already differentiated or can be easily differentiated to meet all learner’s needs.
Skills Covered in these Activities:
- Multiples & Factors
- Patterns & Rules
- Multi Digit Addition & Subtraction Story Problems
- Equivalent Fractions
- Geometry Vocabulary
- Multiplication (1 x 1 - 12 x 12 & Higher Multiplication Problems)
- Fluency with Multiples
- Color by Multiplication and Division
- Understanding & Working With Graphs
See below for more details!
Game 1: Multiple Flip- A great game supporting the understanding of multiples and factors. This game meets the CCSS 4.OA.4
Game 2: What’s the Pattern? Memory Game- This classic Memory game helps learners think about and analyze a pattern that follows a rule. They will have to figure out the pattern and name the rule. This game comes in three different levels: Below grade level, On grade level, and Above grade level, to support the wide variety of learners in your classroom. This game meets the CCSS 3.OA.9, 4.OA.5, 5.OA.3
Game 3: Story Problem Board Game- This colorful board game includes 60 addition and subtraction story problems! Each story problem uses numbers ranging from 1-999. These problems are great practice for basic multi-digit addition and subtraction as well as figuring out relevant information. Learners will enjoy solving problems in order to advance on the game board! This game meets the CCSS 3.NBT.2, 4.NBT.4
Game 4: Equivalent Fractions- In this bingo-like game, learners will practice recognizing and matching equivalent fractions! This game meets the CCSS 3.NF.3b, 4.NF.1
Game 5: Shapes Go Fish- This geometry game is great for continual review of the tricky geometry vocabulary! Learners will need to identify the picture as well as name the picture in order to find a match! This fun game meets the CCSS 3.MD.5, 4.MD.5
Game 6: Multiplication Cards- In 4th grade, multiplication is so important to know fluently! These multiplication cards can be used to play three possible games, or may be used as flashcards, if desired. Learners will learn their multiplication facts while having fun. And for learners who already know their basic facts, there are more challenging two digit times two digit cards to support their high learning! This game meets the CCSS 3.OA.7, 4.NBT.5, 5.NBT.5
Games 7-9: Multiple Speed- Speed is a game most of us played as a kid! Who thought there could be so much learning involved? While having fun, learners will practice their knowing their multiples fluently. Who can think of a better way to practice multiplication? This game meets the CCSS 3.OA.7, 4.OA.4, 5.NBT.5
Game 10: Color By Math- Practice Multiplication and Division by solving math problems embed in a picture and then using the key to color the picture correctly.
Game 11: Graphing Journal Prompts- Just glue these pages into student's notebooks and have them read and answers questions about the graph. The questions hit all levels of thinking and are perfect independent exercises for 4th graders!
I look forward to sharing these great math games with other great teachers! I hope they help you as much as they’ve helped me!
