6 Easy to use Common Core aligned math centers that you can use with any theme!
These have all been tested in a kindergarten classroom and are loved by students!
What is Included:
*Making 10 Detectives: A write the room activity or table center to practice how many more are needed to make 10.
*Teen Number Detectives: A write the room activity or table center to practice recognizing teen numbers as tens and ones, making teen numbers on ten frames, and writing teen numbers as an equation.
*2D and 3D Shape Artists: A center where students pick two artist themed shape cards and fill out the recording sheet comparing the two shapes.
*I Have Who Has Artists: An artist themed I Have Who Has game for numbers 0-20. The numbers are pictured using ones cubes and tens rods. There is a black and white and color version included.
*Decomposing Superheroes: Students pick superhero number cards and then record a way to decompose the number on their card.
*Superhero Addition and Subtraction Fluency 0-5: Students pass around a container filled with superhero fact cards. If the student can give the answer they keep the card, if not it goes back in. If you pull a “POW” card you have to put all of the cards you have collected back. My students ask to play this game over and over again!!!
BONUS: Includes 2 color by the code sheets.
Common Core Standards:
K.OA.K.5 – Fluently add and subtract within 5.
NBT.K.1 – Compose and decompose numbers from 11-19 into tens, ones and some further ones, by using objects or drawings, and record each composition and decomposition by a drawing or equation (such as 18=10+8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
K.G.B.4 - Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/“corners”) and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).
K.OA.A.3 - Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).
K.OA.A.4 - For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
