This HUGE 173 page pack has all I used (and a little more!) to get my firsties working independently so I could work with small groups in math. Common Core alignment for each center is included in the preview file. It comes with both U.S. and British spelling of words where appropriate (like all my packs).
The pack outlines the process and centers I used during the first month of school to teach my kids 10 math activities (or routines) that we use throughout the school year. I knew that once my kids knew these routines back to front they would be able to work independently so I could do what I love - teaching small groups!
The preview file outlines the process I used to get my kids working independently with these routines. Please note that the outline is not scripted nor is it everything I do in math during the first month - it just shows how I used some of my math time to teach my kids these routines. I've included it in the preview so you know what you are getting.
The rest of the pack has the centers I use to teach the routines. There are TWO centers for most of the routines. The 10 routines are:
1. Matching Activities (2 centers)
2. Spin, Tally and Graph (2 centers)
3. Bump (12 boards total)
4. Tic Tac Toe (3 boards in 2 styles = 6 boads total)
5. Using a 100 Chart (2 centers)
6. Task Cards (2 centers)
7. Dominoes (2 centers)
8. Using a pocket chart (2 centers)
9. Write the Room (2 centers)
10. Independent work (4 worksheets)
11. I've also included Thinking and Listening with Unifix Cubes to use with the whole class before you can move to a center.
Each activity comes with a detailed I Can chart and most also come with a recording sheet. Please see the preview for examples.
If you have any questions, please send me a message prior to purchasing.
If you are looking for a way to schedule your rotations, I have the system I use (T.I.M.E. math) and an editable Math Workshop pack available in my store.
