Hello! Let us introduce you to Math Bags, our easy to prep and easy to use math centers! We have been using Math Bags for years! We created these to have a system where students could work on independent math activities while we met with students in small groups. We didn't want to...change math centers often OR use lots of colored ink, so our Math Bags are good to use for 9 weeks AND can be made with just a black and white printer / copy machine and colored card stock!

What are Math Bags?

Math Bags are a set of 10 math activities that can be done independently (this BUNDLE contains 4 sets of 10 activities in each set). We try to hit each strand within each set of Math Bags. Each Math Bag is designed so that it can be done by one student or in a pair of students. We want the Math Bags to be engaging but also at a skill level where students can work independently. The instruction pages were made in a kid friendly way (there are both words and pictures).

Want to see and hear about them in action? Check out this post on our blog to see how Math Bags can SIMPLIFY your classroom centers!
