Product Description
Math Centers

This 6-pack of meaningful math centers will fit nicely into your guided math/math workshop rotations. These math centers are easy-prep -- no cards or small pieces to laminate. All the centers are designed to work in plastic page protectors, and students fill in their responses in their "Lab Books."

What are Math Labs?
Math Labs build skills and fluency on key math topics. They include:

• 6 leveled math centers that follow a progression from beginning skills to advanced. Math Labs start with a hands-on conceptual activity and end with one- and two-step problem-solving tasks. In addition, many of the individual centers also offer multiple levels to meet student needs. Win-win! Altogether, students practice a rich assortment of engaging, skill-building activities.

• A Student Lab Book -- Students are held accountable for their work by completing a Lab Book which contains response pages for each center.

• Support Materials -- all of the centers include teacher notes, student-friendly directions and Answer Keys.

• Labels for Drawers or Tubs and organization tips.

What Centers are Included in this Math Lab?
Math Lab: Multiplication includes these 6 centers:

1. Hands-On Arrays – the best way to understand arrays is to build them. There is simply no substitute for this vital, hands-on experience. Students choose one of three "paths" (levels) and will use small manipulatives (Base Ten “ones” cubes work great) to build 8 arrays on a structured mat and then draw their arrays in their Lab Book.

2. Cookie Multiplication – this center covers beginning multiplication concepts. Students will practice different ways to show multiplication, different ways to say multiplication, and key vocabulary terms.

3. Monster Teeth – students write multiplication equations to determine the number of teeth on monsters. They write their equations in their Lab Book.

4. Find the Factors – a 2-player game where students practice multiplication by finding the factors instead of finding the product. There are 3 different levels of play.

5. Multiplication Quotes – another center where students are given the product and they have to come up with a pair of factors. I've found this kind of practice to be super helpful in learning those facts! It’s a twist on using a multiplication table. Instead of finding a product on the table, students will find a letter instead. They use the letters to solve “quote” cryptograms.

6. Let’s Help Coach Joe! – this center gives your students a reason to solve multiplication problems – Coach Joe needs their help! (I don’t like to give kids unrelated and unrealistic problems to solve. Keep it real!) Starts with one-step problems and advances to two-step.
As a final activity, students write two of their own “Coach Joe” word problems.
