I created these for my first graders to use at review at the start of the year. It will help get them used to centers in my classroom and help them review from the year before. These can also be used in Kinder or 2nd grade depending on the level of students.

Each center has a follow up worksheet for students to complete to check for understanding.

There are 4 math centers included:
Missing Adden...Students practice finding the missing adden in the number sentence, using the muffins to help them. (If laminated students may write the number in the box. The worksheet they may do as they complete the center, after they complete the center or at a different time.

Place Value...Students then practice counting using the place value cards. They match the muffin card to a number card. Worksheet is to be done after center is complete. Students then show sticks and cubes to represent the numbers.

Addition.... Students then practice adding the numbers together and sort according to the sum of the number sentence. Worksheet is to be done after center is complete or on own.

Place Value...Students use the Place Value Mat to place the different cards with different amounts of muffins. Students then count muffins on each side and decide which symbol they should use to make the sentence true. Worksheet is to be completed after center is done.

Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = ▯ - 3, 6 + 6 = ▯.
Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false? 6 = 6, 7 = 8 - 1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 + 2.
Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
