Help your fourth graders master key math skills, and provide differentiated math practice through fun, hands-on activities in these 12 centers. Each full-color center focuses on a skill from a Common Core State Standards math domain, such as numbers and counting, operations, measurement and data, geometry, and math vocabulary.
The easy-to-assemble centers are stored in pocket folders, making them easy to use at a table, desk, or quiet area in the classroom. After a teacher or classroom aide models how to use a center, students can complete the activity independently, in pairs, or with the teacher, who may use the task to informally assess a student’s understanding.
Each of the 12 centers includes:
full-color center mats and task cards
an overview with lesson objectives
a student direction page that explains the center activity
a response form or written practice activity
a center checklist to record each student’s progress
Take It to Your Seat: Common Core Math Centers has been updated to address the new advanced standards, and provides:
an increase in the variety and complexity of activities to practice each skill in alignment with Common Core State Standards.
leveled tasks within some centers so that tasks progress in difficulty from level 1 to level 2.
an illustrated math concept or rule for every center to support visual learners and keep the focus on the targeted math concept or skill.
The 12 centers cover the following fourth grade math skills:
Numbers and Counting
Describe patterns of numbers and shapes by identifying the rule that the pattern follows
Read and write multi-digit whole numbers, using numerals, number names, and expanded forms
Use place value to round multi-digit numbers
Identify equivalent fractions based on visual models
Compare fractions, using greater than, less than, and equal to symbols
Use the decimal form of fractions that have denominators of 10 and 100
Build fluency with multiplication facts to 12
Use the four operations to solve multistep word problems
Measurement and Data
Know the relative sizes of linear units within measurement systems (U.S. customary and metric)
Organize, display, and interpret data on a line plot
Identify right, acute, and obtuse angles
Understand unique math vocabulary
