PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Purchasing these packs individually would cost $37, but by purchasing the bundle you can save $7!!

March-Math-Centers

These 16 math centers were created for students to complete during math workshop. All sixteen centers are aligned to the second grade Common Core Standards. Each game can be completed independently by students and a recording sheet is included with every activity to hold students accountable for their work.

Eight of the sixteen centers are tiered so all students can be working on the same skill, at a different level of difficulty. Counting all the differentiated activities, this pack actually contains 44 different activities. This is a zipped file. In this file are four separate files focusing on different areas of math. Here is a description of each file.

I have printed all of my games on colored copier paper and laminated them to make them more durable. I have cut up all the games and stored them in Ziplock bags so I can lay them flat in a box for storage.

April-Math-Centers
This month contains two packs, April Showers Bring Graphing Power: Line Plot, Bar, and Pictographs! (2nd Grade) and Spring Time.
The graphing pack was created to support and supplement your graphing unit. Although the title includes the word “April,” most of the centers are not seasonal and could be done year round. The only somewhat “seasonal” center is the “Favorite Color Bunnies” pictograph center.

It includes 8 different activities to give students practice reading, creating, and analyzing bar graphs, pictographs and line plot graphs. All bar graphs use a scale of 1 per the Common Core Standards. The pictographs use a scale of 2. The following activities are included:

Can-A-Thon Graphing- Students read a provided line plot graph and answer 6 questions. An additional challenge question card is included. Two answer sheets are included, one with the challenge question and one without. Clip art is included if the teacher chooses to make this line plot activity hands on.

Measuring Pencils Mania- This is two activities. In the first activity, students measure pictures of pencils to the nearest whole centimeter and record the result. In the second activity, students use the measurements of the pencil lengths to create a line plot graph. Two versions of the line plot sheet are included, one labeled with numbers and one that is blank. Then, students answer 6 questions. An additional challenge question card is included. Two answer sheets are included, one with the challenge question and one without.

A Little Bit of Yum- Students read a provided tally chart and bar graph and answer 6 questions. An additional challenge question card is included. Two answer sheets are included, one with the challenge question and one without.

Students then answer 6 questions. An additional challenge question card is included. Two answer sheets are included, one with the challenge question and one without. Clip art is included if the teacher chooses to make this graphing activity hands on.

The Spring Time pack was created to supplement a unit on teaching time. Three different activities are included, with many options for differentiation by content and process. Included in this pack are the following materials:

Spring Time- Students draw a clock card and write the time on a recording sheet. Four different versions of this game are included:
• telling time to the hour

• telling time to the minute

Tending to Time- Students match the clock card to the word card describing the time (quarter to, quarter after, half past, etc.). Several different versions of the recording sheet are included.
• The first version has blank clocks. Students record the clock hands and the words.
• On the second version, students record the words only.
• On the third version, the students only draw the matching clock hands.

All About Time- Students sort scenario cards under the headers of a.m. or p.m. to determine when the event occurs. Two versions of this activity are included:

• Students sort sentences in short paragraph form that describe the event and time. A clock is included on each card. There are two versions of the recording sheet for this activity. On the first version, students only record the “a.m.” or “p.m.” On the second version, the students write the “a.m.” and the “p.m.” and the time on the card.

Please note, the scenarios in both activities are the same, only the presentation is different.
