Product Description
This product includes resources that I've used to structure a math block that is focused on independence, accountability, differentiation, and high engagement. When I used a more traditional math centers system, I always had students who were frustrated with being forced to rotate to a new activity before they were finished or who were finished long before they were allowed to rotate. Math Tic-Tac-Toe centers allow students to move from activity to activity at their own pace, while still requiring them to accomplish a broad range of activities in a given time frame. The first page of this product is a sample Tic-Tac-Toe board that I give to my students at the beginning of the week.

The pages that follow are some of the student center choices. They are intentionally open-ended activities so as to allow for success by students with a wide range of math abilities. The center templates include: create a story problem, money, measurement, time, lines (geometry), shapes (geometry), and patterns. For a class of about 25 students, I tend to keep about 5 activities out at a time, and each activity stays out for about 2 weeks. Of course, they can make a return after a bit of a hiatus. While students are working on centers, I can pull small groups for targeted instruction!

The students have a math folder in which they keep their work and their tic-tac-toe board until the end of the week when I collect everything that they've finished. Using the tic-tac-toe board, I can easily check to see if a student has accomplished an appropriate amount of work within the week. The system is win-win for all!
