Grinch themed math centers to practice 4 different operations and algebraic thinking. This center is a perfect Christmas holiday addition to your centers and is a fun way to incorporate math into the beloved holiday story, How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
These Clip and Flip center cards are a great way to differentiate centers and can be used as centers, small group or partner table work.
With this special Clip and Flip center, students will solve the math problems and then clip clothespin to the their answer. They can then flip the card over to check the answer. After laminating, dry erase markers can be used instead of clothespins.
Teacher tip – To make this center self checking I like to use a sharpie to make a small dot on the back of the card to mark the correct answer but color coded stickers work well too.
