This pack contains differentiated math centers that focus on place value. All 3 centers are aligned to the second grade Common Core Standards. Each game can be completed independently by students and a recording sheet is included with every activity to hold students accountable for their work.
Two of the three centers are tiered so all students can be working on the same skill, at a different level of difficulty. Counting all the differentiated activities, this pack actually contains 7 different activities.
The following centers are included:
Shamrock Shake Up: Students compare numbers using <, >, or =. Students draw a card and solve the comparison on the card. There are three versions of this game (from least to most difficult):
• Comparing numbers using a mixed place value review (word form, expanded form, and base ten blocks)
• Comparing numbers using mixed place value review (word form, expanded form, and base ten blocks). In this version students will have to regroup the blocks.
• Comparing numbers using mixed place value review (word form, expanded form, and base ten blocks). In this version students will have to regroup the blocks and word form.
Pot of Gold Place Value: Students practice regrouping numbers. Students draw a card and group to find the number. There are three versions of this game (from least to most difficult):
• Regrouping base ten blocks only
• Regrouping words only
• Regrouping words and blocks (mixed)
Comparing Clovers: Students read the comparisons and sort under greater than, less than, and equal to. This game is NOT differentiated.
In addition to the centers there are three different extra practice worksheets to remediate for each academic skill/ center. These would be great as assessments, independent work, or an early finisher activity. Answer keys are included when possible.
All the centers are in black and white to save on printing costs. Color covers with directions for the games are included if you like that extra punch of color! I have printed all of my games on colored copier paper and laminated them to make them more durable. I have cut up all the games and stored them in Ziplock bags so I can lay them flat in a box for storage.
