Get ready...get set...for the easiest math centers you have ever laid your eyes on! As a teacher, I try very hard to create meaningful centers that require my students to apply new skills all while participating in fun and engaging activities. Independent centers are a great way to see a student's application of skills. Centers are GREAT! The preparation, however is not always the favorite for many teachers.
If you love the thought of engaging math centers, but you do not love the thought of all of the preparation, these math centers are just for you! This unit includes 14 math centers (you can use some or all) that will have your students practicing basic skills such as addition, subtraction, place value and much more! The best part...the only preparation needed - cut out your students' number cards (which could technically be cut by the students).
Directions for each activity are located on the response sheets. During each activity, the students will be using their number cards to create and manipulate numbers. This means that the level of difficulty all depends on the student. They can create one, two, three or four digit numbers (or greater). Students can work in partners or independently to complete their centers. You can have 1-2 centers per week or introduce them all and allow students to choose which center they complete each day.
