PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Surf your way through great center activities! This bundle will give your students the surfing theme with 3 reading centers (includes task cards for any informational text or literature), 1 vocabulary center, 2 addition games, and 2 multiplication games.

READING ACTIVITIES
Use these all year long as task cards may be used with ANY text. Students will have a new game with each new story or nonfiction piece. Students should be instructed to bring their text to the center so they can find and justify their answers. The text dependent question cards will ask about the main idea, details, illustrations, captions, bold words, unfamiliar words, difficult parts of the text, authors purpose, text connections, characters, relationships between characters, setting, effects of the character's actions, point of view, comparing and contrasting, and more.

(1) SURF THE TEXT BOARD GAME: Informational Text and Literature Versions
Students will answer and discuss task card questions to advance their token. The object of this game is to travel to the end of the blocks to surf the epic waves of knowledge. Use with ANY informational text or ANY literature. This is a great way to integrate science and social studies into the reading block as you may use this center with ANY literature or nonfiction text! Use with a clear spinner or create a spinner with a pencil and paperclip (see instructions).

MATH

(5&6) SALUTE GAME: Multiplication and Addition Versions
Students will use inverse operations and knowledge of fact families while gaining fluency with basic math facts. All students are engaged at all times. Play in groups of three.
Game includes a student instruction card for multiplication as well as addition, a teacher instruction card, number cards 1-12, and images for the reverse side of the cards.
Game includes 2 sets of optional images to suit your ink level comfort zone.

(7) MULTIPLICATION BINGO:
2 sets of 10 bingo cards to suit your ink level comfort zone.
The boards may be marked 3 ways:
Use counters from your math manipulatives, place bingo pages in sheet protectors and use with dry erase markers, or use pencils for a hard copy formative.
I prefer the dry erase markers because I ask students to mark the factors on the individual boxes. For example, if I call 6X7, students mark 6X7 in the box with the 42. This makes checking for accuracy easy. It also gives me formative information of where my students need help. Includes 2 sets of 10 different bingo pages to suit your ink level comfort zone. Game pages include Surf Kid characters with a variety of hair, eye, and skin tones.

(8) MAKE A TEN BINGO:
Build addition, subtraction, and fact family fluency. Choose numbers randomly or use playing cards. Place pages in sheet protectors and use with dry erase markers. Includes 2 sets of 10 cards with assorted characters and numbers. As bingo cards include at least 2 of each number, students using the same cards may get different bingo results depending on placement of their tokens.
