In my classroom, math centers are an important part of our math block! I developed these Solve the Room Activities to help streamline my math center routine!
Each week, one center that my students visit is Solve the Room. They grab a recording sheet and clipboard and walk around the classroom searching for the task cards. They solve the problem on the card and write their answer on the recording sheet.

Review- a review of various first grade math skills
In each Solve the Room pack, I have included 3 versions so you can pick the one that best fits your needs.

Anytime – non-seasonal cards that can be used at any time of the year!
There are also blank task cards in each set to write in your own problems.
There are several recording sheet templates in this pack. In my classroom, I use the general template. This works for every Solve the Room pack I have created! No need to find and print a new one each week. Just keep a master and copy and you’re good to go! There are also templates included that are specific to this Solve the Room Pack!
All task card sets are printer friendly!
These cards can be used in many ways! You could play a whole class scoot game to review a concept! You could also use them for extra practice at your small group table!
