Math Centers Linky Party!

Thanks to Laura Candler at Corkboard Connections for hosting this awesome linky party!  It relates to my most favorite part of the day:  MATH CENTERS!  :)

I L-O-V-E teaching math using small groups and centers!  I feel that I am able to give individualized instruction to each child, giving attention to their specific weaknesses.
 
When coming up with ideas for centers, I make sure it follows two rules:
(1) aligns with our standards, and
(2) it’s fun!
 
Here are a few pictures of how I set up my centers:
I laminate EVERYTHING.
I put everything in baggies (big papers in gallon baggies, smaller cards in sandwich baggies).
I use these cards to display center names and students who will participate in each.  They have magnets on the back of them…I can move the cards easily whenever it’s time to rotate centers.  Click the picture to snag your own free center signs!
And now for the goodies!!!  Click my picture below to snag your own copy of several math centers freebies I’ve created in the past!  (The link will take you to my Math freebies section at my TpT store…there were too many pics/games to link up!)  Enjoy!

  3. I'm going to be teaching 3rd grade for the first time next year! Thank you for sharing your ideas! I have a couple of questions for you! How often do you change the centers? How much time do the students spend at the centers each day? Thank you so much!

  4. Thank you for some great ideas…looking forward to implementing them next year.

  7. Martha, please make sure you have the latest version of Adobe. Also, make sure you're viewing the document in Adobe and not preview. It's there. I promise. :)

  8. Thank you so much for this link! I am setting up rotations for my kids this year, and these games will help greatly!! I look forward to using them, and looking into more of your TPT stuff too!!

  9. Thanks for the freebies. They will be great to use in my centers.This is my first year doing centers and I am a bit nervous. I can’t wait to try your suggestions.
