These fifth grade math centers for decimals are perfect for the digital teacher!
I LOVE all things pretty, including task cards, math centers, and interactive notebooks for that matter. I have created all of the above and even purchased them as well. What I fail to do is print them as they were made and laminate them to keep from year to year. It’s a lot of work. I start, but end up getting behind and fail to complete my task at hand. My school district went 1:1 with technology last year, so I thought, why not create all these pretty math centers that don’t need printed, laminated, cut out, and stored. Make them digital!
Please note: Even if you are 1:1 in the classroom, you CAN still make these work!!!! A blog post will be coming soon on just this!
How they Work
Technically, you don’t need Google Classroom to access these math centers. You simply need a Google account so that you can access the slides within Google Slides. We are a Google school, so it’s extremely easy to share the files with students within Google Classroom.
The centers are ordered in the order that they would typically be taught. They do not need to be played in the order that they are provided, it’s more of a guide.
You can provide all centers to students to complete in the order of their choice, or you can even create your own order. How? Here are some options:
►The slides are movable. You can order them in the order that you want students to complete them.
►Make multiple copies of the file, delete all the slides but the center that you want them to complete, and save it as the center name. That way, students are only provided with the center that they must complete.
Digital Recording Math Booklet
If you want to go 100% paperless, there is a digital version of the recording booklet.
Printable Recording Math Booklet
Students record their responses in the math booklet. I have created the booklet so that they can be copied front and back, minimizing the amount of paper used!
