Fourth Grade Math Vocabulary/Synonym Center:
This center helps students master the terminology associated with word problems. By writing out and applying the meaning of the words to different contexts, they see the associations that the words have with their concepts and are better able to decipher word problems in order to solve them using the correct mathematical operation. Understanding the nuances are so essential at any level. I've used this in fourth grade with much success.
