Are you ready for no hassle/no fuss centers? Well...you've come to the right place. Turkeylicious are the easiest math centers around. I really try to create puposeful centers that are thought provoking as well as fun. But...the thought of setting up centers usually sends me into a tizzy because of all the preparation involved. Turkeylicious has very little set up and directions are easy to understand. I'm doing all my centers like this from now on!
Turkeylicious includes 6 math centers that will have your students practicing basic skills such as addition, subtraction, rounding, fractions, comparing numbers, and beginning level multiplication.
It's also differentiated into Primary as well as Intermediate Editions of each concept.
The best part...the only preparation needed are for student's to cut their own playing cards that they will use for each center. This literally took my students less than five minutes to do.
Easy to Follow Directions
For each activity, the students will be using their number cards to create and for their own numbers. This is where differentiation can take place for different ability levels. Instead of creating a three digit number, all the student needs to do to make it easier or more difficult is to draw one card, two cards, or four cards. This changes the problem so the student can work at their own ability level. Directions are written for primary as well as intermediate editions. You can either introduce the centers all at once or one at a time. My students completed Turkeylicious in an afternoon. I introduced the centers and students spent 15 minutes a center and then switched. I posted the center posters around the room to make it easier for student's to find which center was next. They loved it as did I because it was enriching, engaging, and fun! I plan to play them again the day before Thanksgiving because we have a half day. We will have a pajama breakfast and then do Turkeylicious Math Centers until we go home.
