Save BIG by purchasing the BASIC Math Centers bundle!
Thanks so much for viewing my Basic Math Centers: Match Ups Packet. This packet is designed to offer a fun and engaging way to practice math skills. You will be able to use these match up centers as a supplement to your whole-group lesson and/or as an independent center option. To prep the centers, simply print the skill cards and cut them individually. You will then print out the matching recording mat. The students will need to have a pencil, crayons or markers to indicate their answers. If you choose to utilize these center recording mats for more than one use, then you’ll want to laminate them or place them into a dry-erase sleeve. See below for THREE ways to utilize this packet!
How can I utilize the match-ups in my classroom?
Memory Match-Up: Have students place the cards face down. Turn over two cards at a time to see if the two are a match. I recommend that you limit the number of cards you put out.
Find a Match: Have students work to sort the stack of cards into matches. All of the cards will be face up.
Puzzlin’ Match: Have students play the match game as a Puzzlin’ game. Leave one of the match sets as a sheet or “board”. Then, cut up the other match as individual cards. Students will place the match card down onto the “board”.
What are the BASIC MATH centers?
Thanks so much for downloading my Basic Math Centers Bundle. Have you ever thought, “I wish I had a set of centers that did not need to take precious class time to teach and reteach again. If only there was a set of basic centers that maintained the same systematic routine and just swapped skills!” Well, wait and fret no more! Basic Math Centers is just that! This bundle offers 5 systematic centers: write the room, sort by skill, spin and record, match-ups and game boards! Within each of these 5 systematic centers comes 30 included activities. These activities cover the same set of skills throughout. For example, if your students are working on shapes you can choose activities from the write the room, sort by skill, spin and record, match-ups and game boards packets and have a full set of centers for your students. Let’s say your kids are then ready for addition! You will simply pull the addition version of each and your students will not need to be taught how to play the center because they just learned the concept during the shape centers. This reduces that time of teaching and reteaching completely! You are now able to swap the skill and keep on trucking along! You will be able to use these centers as a supplement to your whole-group lesson and/or as an independent center option. The centers all come in two versions: color and ink saving black/white. Each center also comes with a recording sheet! If you choose to utilize these center recording mats for more than one use, then you’ll want to laminate them or place them into a dry-erase sleeve. Students can use a dry-erase marker or plastic manipulative to indicate their answers.
* NO THEMES so you can use them throughout the year.
* Color AND Black/White versions included.
* Center stays the same-- skills change/build in rigor through the year.
