Have you ever considered using a math menu? I was at my wit's end with math centers when I saw our gifted specialist use a choice menu for a social studies unit and thought, "Could I do that for math?!" While math centers have value for students, I was struggling to maintain them…making the activities and materials, switching them out, etc. I knew there must be an easier and more efficient way for me that would also meet the needs of my students. That's when I decided to create a math menu and give it a try! Now a year later, I can say that Math Menu is fun and meaningful for my students and with flexible grouping, allows me to effectively meet their needs during small group instruction.
Math Menu can be used with any math unit and any grade-level! To learn more about my Math Menu visit my blog (theschoolpotato.blogspot.com).
This product includes an overview of how I manage Math Menu with my 2nd graders, my Math Menu, a blank template for your own menu, signs for your classroom, a check-in table for student accountability, a student/teacher checklist and blank cards for the Invent a Game choice.
