While completing these six math centres your Grade One students will have a monster of a time. Each center focuses on a different strand or skill.
Monster Patterns: Students extend and create monster patterns. (Bonus activity: students extend a super long growing pattern.)
Monster Parts: Students demonstrate the concept of one-to-one correspondence between numbers and objects by counting monster families, monster parts and feeding a hungry monster.
GeoMonsters: Students identify common 2D shapes that make up a GeoMonster and create and describe their own GeoMonster.
Monster Sums: Students compose numbers up to twenty using monster parts (i.e. these 3 monsters have 12 arms altogether).
Monster Measurement: This center includes two options.
1. Students measure the size of a variety of monsters using centicubes or other nonstandard units.
2. Students use a monster (nonstandard unit) to measure a variety of items around the classroom.
