Fill Up My Bucket!
This is a summer and beach themed set of math centers and games.
Please leave feedback for my center! It helps me to know what helps you and your students and what you would like to see in future centers.
The centers include:
1. Fill the Buckets! Numbers 1-5. This is a center for counting and recognizing numerals. Students will recognize the numeral on the bucket and count out the correct number of seashell manipulatives. Students will complete an extension activity to count an amount of beach objects and write the correct numeral.
2. Fill the Buckets! Numbers 5-10. This is a center for counting and recognizing numerals. Students will recognize the numeral on the bucket and count out the correct number of seashell manipulatives. Students will complete an extension activity to count an amount of beach objects and write the correct numeral.
3. Sandy Matching. A center for matching numerals, number words, and objects.Students will recognize and identify the number word, numeral, and count the number of objects. Students will match the cards. Students will complete extension activities to trace and write numerals and to match a group of objects to the correct numeral.
4. Beach Bucket Adding. A center for addition, with and without manipulatives. Students will solve equations with sums from 1-10. Students will understand that different combinations of numbers can equal the same sum. Students will record equations on the extension work-sheets.
These centers can be printed out and laminated for durability.
Common Core Standards:
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4a When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4b Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.5 Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1–20, count out that many objects. (This center includes numbers 1-10).
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.3 Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects). (This center includes numbers 1-10)
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4 Understand the relationship
between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality number name with one and only one object.
I am so pleased to share some center ideas with you. I am passionate about differentiation and believe that it is so important to make it easier for the classroom teacher to differentiate. I hope that my centers save you some time and provide your students with enjoyment!
