This math center is engaging, easy to differentiate, and quick to evaluate. Students work though problems on a ring and color a part of the picture each time they complete a problem. Because the recording sheets are interchangeable, students can work on the problem type most appropriate for them. One student could work on the cards from this set while another student is working on addition to 20. Both students can be coloring the same recording sheet.
In this center, students will work on identifying fractions with a focus on halves, fourths, and thirds. There are also other fractions included up to eighths.
Print a coloring sheet for each student. Print and laminate the 5 sets of flip task cards in color or blackline. I like to hole punch each set and store it on a binder ring, but each set could also be placed in a Ziploc bag, pencil box, or travel soap container.
Get a coloring sheet and a set of flip task cards. Write the letter for the card set you chose in the empty circle.
1. Flip to the first card and solve the problem. On that card, find the arrow.
2. Record your answer on the coloring sheet next to the matching arrow. 3. Color one part of the picture.
4. Repeat the process until all ten answers are recorded. Color in any remaining parts of the picture.
This pack has 5 sets of task cards that each include 10 problems. All task cards are in black and white and color. There are also 10 unique coloring sheet designs.
