Here are my math centers from last week! I kept it pretty simple again for week 2. The children are getting really good at working together and staying on task! woo hoo!
After we explored last week with unifix cubes, we practiced some simple AB patterns. These pattern cards are from Jessica Meacham’s site.
This one was a simple sort using foam shapes that I got from the dollar section at target. I separated them into baggies for each child and they used tweezers to sort them into the right space. Then they counted how many of each color they had. If there was still time, they used their tweezers to put them back in the bag.
This is a fun roll and find from Julie Lee’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear unit. I just made the sides for the die on my computer and inserted them into one of my favorite teaching tools – the foam dice! This one isn’t a “math” center per se, but it works well for learning how to share the die and take turns!
The kiddos also explored (ahem, played) with pattern blocks. Hopefully the playing part is all of their system when we go to really work with the pattern blocks! ha- wishful thinking!!
My last center was from Julie’s and Deanna’s back to school packet, but I forgot to snap a picture of it! The kids counted how many kids were on a bus and wrote the number on their paper.
