This is a unit complied of 5 math centers to use with cubes in your classroom. There is minimal prep. needed because you can use linking cubes as the manipulatives for the centers. The pack is aligned to the Common Core Standards.

-Sorting by Color: the students will look at the cube mat, and sort the cubes according to color
-Counting: the students look at the number on the mat and place that many blocks down
-Clip the Number: the students count the cubes on the mat, and clip the correct number
-Adding on: the students look at the number on the sheet, and place more blocks down to equal the number
-Write the number: the students look at the mat, and write the number

Each math center comes with a recording sheet that can be completed with the center, used as independent or guided practice, or for homework.

I am excited to use this in my class for the beginning of the year as I introduce colors, numbers, counting, and adding on!
