Math Center Print and Pack
by Pam D'Alessandro
Read all about this on my Teaching By The Sea Blog Post!
I love the boxes that you can buy with 'photo' cases. I made this year long center to fit in the photo cases! All you do is print the 600 cards (three to a page.) The cards are colored coded to match the colors of the boxes so Kinders can easily put them back after they are finished. Once they are cut and laminated, you just pack them in! No other prep at all.
There are recording sheets to use for each type of card. I let my kinders use their Math Journals. They just write the date at the top and write down what they did during Math time. My students are grouped in pairs for math so they can take turns picking a card and they like working together.
These cards cover number sense: counting, adding, subtracting, number bonds, ten frames, and base ten blocks. I have an Animals Headband packet that uses the same animal pictures on the cards. Animal Headbands for Kinders!
It is fun for students to wear their headbands while doing math!
This is such a fun and engaging center and requires so little prep! Just put some clothespins or make some clips: my blogpost on how to make clips from large paperclips!)
