This Math Centers Bundle includes all 17 of my NO PREP/EASY PREP activities that can be used for seat work or in centers. They are as follows:
Domino Doubles and Doubles Plus One is an activity to help students learn their doubles facts and understand how to quickly compute doubles plus one facts. Fill a math tub with dominoes showing doubles and these recording sheets and you're all set! Students choose a domino, draw it on the recording sheet, and write the number sentence. Next, they draw the doubles plus one and write the number sentence.
Double Dice Subtraction is an easy activity for practicing subtraction facts. Put the recording sheets and some double dice in a tub and your center is ready! Students roll the double dice and write the greater number in the first box. They write the smaller number in the second box and find the difference to complete the equation.
Doubles Without Troubles helps students understand doubles facts. Using the Model Mat and the spinner, students practice their doubles facts in a concrete way as they develop fact fluency. Each student needs a recording sheet, manipulatives of any kind, and a Model Mat. They spin the spinner and build each addend in its own ten frame which enables them to easily see the double. They count to find the sum and record the equation on the recording sheet. Easy success!
Drop the Number is a fun activity to use for practicing place value counting and comparing numbers. You'll need to make ten "number sticks" for each student using craft sticks and a marker. Draw ten dots on one side of the stick and one dot on the other side. Students will each need their ten "number sticks" and a recording sheet to do the activity. They toss their ten "number sticks" and count the number. Next, they draw and write the number on the recording sheet. Finally, they compare their numbers using the correct symbols.
Fact Family Dice Toss is an easy way to practice fact families. Students use two dice and the recording sheet. To play, they toss the dice and write down the three numbers in the fact family in the boxes on their paper. Then they write the facts in the fact family below the boxes. This is perfect for introducing fact families in a hands-on way!
Fact Family Trains is a fact family activity. You'll need a tub of snap cubes, dice, and the recording sheets. Each student needs two dice. They roll the dice and build the two numbers using two different colors of snap cubes. Next, they write the facts in the fact family.
Quick Tens Speedy Nines includes two math center activities that help students strengthen their mental math skills. Quick Tens helps students practice their ten facts using base ten blocks. After spinning the Quick Tens spinner, students write the equation and use base ten blocks to solve. They quickly become proficient with the ten facts and are then ready for the next game which is Speedy Nines. To play, students roll a ten-sided die to roll their number for each problem. They write that number on the recording sheet in both of the dotted boxes. After recording the sum of the "Quick Ten" fact, they determine the sum of the "Speedy Nine" fact by mentally subtracting one from their "Quick Ten" fact. My students love this game!
Snap Cubes Addition is a foundational way to reinforce addition facts up to 10 and to help students see the pattern. It is also a great way to help students understand the commutative property of addition as they build and record two addend equations for the assigned number. All you need to add is a tub of snap cubes! Students must select two colors to use and build all of the ways to make the number. I have them build each equation and put them in order to form a staircase before recording their equations on the recording sheet.
Spin and Show is a fun activity for practicing the concept of more and less. All that is needed is the recording sheet. Using the spinner on the recording sheet, spin and record the number in the ten frame. Next, draw the number using tally marks. Finally, using both the ten frames and tally marks, record a number that is more and a number that is less than the first number.
Spin and Subtract Ten is great practice for building numbers and understanding the process of subtracting ten. All you need is a tub of base ten blocks and the recording sheets. Each student can use a pencil and a paper clip to spin the numbers, add them together, and subtract ten from the total number. Students who need support with manipulatives can use the tub of base ten blocks to build the numbers.
Subtract Tens is a great activity for learning to subtract with multiples of ten. All you need is a tub of base ten blocks to use with the recording sheets. Students spin the spinners and use the numbers to write their equations and subtract. Students can use mental math or use the tub of manipulatives if more support is needed.
This Way-That Way Domino Addition helps reinforce the understanding that facts can be written horizontally or vertically. All you need is a tub of dominoes and copies of the recording sheet. Students select a domino, copy the domino dots, and write the facts both horizontally and vertically.
Subtraction Snackers is a motivating concrete level activity to help children develop an understanding of subtraction. All you need are the recording sheets, dice, and snack baggies with cereal pieces inside. Students roll the dice and write a subtraction problem by writing the larger number in the first box and the smaller number in the "open mouth" on the recording sheet. Next, they use their snack pieces to act out the problem and find the difference. You can use 6-sided or 10-sided dice to provide the appropriate level for you kiddos.
Fact Fun Turn Arounds helps students understand the commutative property of addition and increase fact fluency to 10. Recording sheets for sums of 4-10 are included. Add some 2-seded counters and your center is ready! Students gather the number of counters they need for the recording sheet they are working with, roll the counters, and color to record their model. Next, they write their first fact beginning with the red number and their second fact beginning with the yellow number.
On and Off Addition is a fun activity that provides hands-on practice for learning addition facts to 10 and gaining fact fluency. All you need are the recording sheets and a tub of small cubes. Students gather the number of cubes they need for the recording sheet they are working on. They hold the cubes over the star on the recording sheet and drop them on the paper. The recording sheet has a place for them to write how many cubes landed on the star and how many landed off the star. After recording those amounts, they write the addition equation to match the model.
This is a fast-paced activity. My kids really enjoy this one!
Doubles Addition Dice Toss is an easy hands-on activity for practicing doubles facts. Put the recording sheets and some dice in a tub and your center is ready. There is an optional "Doubles Mat" you can use with manipulatives as well. Students roll one die and write that number in the first and second addend boxes to make a double fact. Solve it and roll again to keep making facts! Use 6-sided or 10-sided dice to meet the needs of your students.
Fact Family Fun is a hands-on activity to help students understand related facts in fact families. This is a NO PREP math center! All you need are the recording sheets and a tub of two-sided counters. Students gather the number of counters indicated on their recording sheet, toss them, and color to record the model. They write the related facts below their model. Very easy and fun for kids!
