Here is a few pics of my current math centers.
First, this is a simple center that was a HIT! One of my co-workers had these bare trees laminated on blue paper. My amazing EA just bought my these plastic leaves (Target dollar spot, of course!) The kids simply rolled a dice and added the leaves. So simple yet they could have stayed at this center all day.
This activity was inspired by the ten frame candy corns everyone has. The kids match the top part with a number to the bottom with a ten frame. This activity is an ink saver that was run off on brown construction paper. It may be available for free this week...but only on my blog.
My EA also got me these acorns from Target that go perfect with Miss. Kindergarten's November Centers.
This is a picture of how I organize my math centers. I place everything I need in one of these drawers. Okay, some items go on top. Do you see the cute turkey bag? Can you guess where that is from? (I LOVE TARGET). I have it stocked for 2 weeks at a time. The top drawers have current centers and the bottom was are for future centers. This is great if you have to be out of the classroom. Your sub can teach the centers your kids have already learned. I let my kids guide how long they use the centers. Some centers are put away after two days. The more popular ones stay out all week and often make guest appearances again and again. I love when my students are able to stay highly engaged in an activity so I can work with a small group.
Later this week I will be introducing my Turkey, Turkey, Turkey Centers. I can't wait to use these centers!!!
