This is a resource for setting up Maths Stations in your classroom. The ideas are nothing new but it's perfect if you want a bit of colour in organising your classroom and stations. (You will never again have children ask you what they are doing next!)
1. A big heading 'MATHS', with each letter in an individual circle.
2. Headings for the days of the week.
3. A heading 'Maths Stations'
4. Flashcards for Groups 1 to 4.
5. Alternative flashcards for four groups (with names on groups,
rather than labeling Group 1). Names of groups are; The
Magicians, The Sorcerers, The Wizards and The Professors.
6. Flashcards x4 - 1st Rotation, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Rotation.
7. Four flashcards for the names of each station - 'Maths Facts',
Teacher Time, Hands On and At Your Seat.
** For anyone who wants an example of how Maths Stations can be used I have a brief explanation of how I use them in my classroom below:
I use Maths Stations 3 out of 5 days a week. The children love it!
I only have three groups in my classroom so for Maths Facts, I usually have all the kids listening, giving them curricular based facts or instructing them on the next concept we are covering. Then follows three 15 minute rotations to hit each other station.
I use Teacher Time as a teacher-led station where old concepts are revised (or broken down for children who may be struggling), and where new facts are reinforced, and/or added to (for children who are well able).
Hands On is any game, puzzle, concrete materials or fun activity I can get my hands on. These can further reinforce new material or randomly revise old concepts. (Always their favourite station).
I use At Your Seat as an independent station where children complete the ordinary book based tasks, tasks written up on the board or work in their copies.
Hope this proves helpful to someone!
