Back to School Math and Literacy Centers for Older Students

Get your students geared up for another great school year with these 10 "back to school" themed math and literacy centers (5 math, 5 literacy). The centers are designed to touch on important math and literacy concepts that are typically taught at the beginning of the school year. The centers are in full-color and each have a recording sheet to show student work.

The concepts included in the math centers are:
1) Representing Numbers: Student work through 3 sets of cards reading numbers in either word, digit, or expanded form. Students are then asked to translate the given form into one of the others ways a number can be represented. For example, if a number is given in digit form (ie. 34), they might be asked to write it in expanded form (30+4).

2) Red-Apple Rounding - Students round given numbers to the nearest tens, hundreds, and thousands place value.

3) Ways to Make 100 - Students are given several cards with equations that all equal to 100. Each equation has a missing numbers that students must add or subtract from the given number to make 100.

4) Patterns - Students work through several picture and numerical patterns to determine the rule as well as 2 missing numbers or pictures from the pattern.

5) Time for School - Students find digital and traditional clock matches and record their matches on a recording sheet.

Literacy concepts included are:
1) Types of sentences - Students determine if a sentence is declarative, interrogative, imperative or exclamatory. Students use a sorting mat (that includes definition of each type of sentence and what punctuation is used) to help them make their decision.

3) Groups of Three - Students work through 2 sets to find 3 words that are a group of synonyms.

4) Put it Together - Students are given cards that have two sentences on it. Students use connector words such as "and, but, because...etc..." to make the two choppy sentences into one smoother sentence.

5) Tell Me How to Do It - Students pick a card with a "how to" task on it, and write the directions using detailed steps on how to do that task.
