M is for Mathematical Monday {Math Centers}

First, I want to THANK all of our nation's Veterans on this holiday.  I want to give a BIG "THANK YOU" to my hubby who has made many sacrifices for our country.

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.

This week we used a variety of math center so review skills.  I like to keep a spiral review emphasis in my math instruction to ensure students have mastery of a skill.  Here are a few of the centers we used this week.

For Number Sense students used a deck of cards to create a number, they flipped over 5 cards.  Students then compared their numbers to determine who had the greatest number.  The student with the largest number one that round of war.

For 4.OA.1 students used multiplication flash cards to play a game.  One team member chose a card from the deck, everyone solved it on their white boards, and those who answered correctly moved up one space on the game board.

Students practiced solving word problems with these Thanksgiving themed task cards.

Students played "Spin to Win" to practice using the area model of multiplication for multiplying two-digit by one digit.

Do you use Math Centers in your classroom?  What are some of your favorite games or resources?


  1. Please pass on our sincere thanks and gratitude to your husband.

  2. My favorite activities during centers are dice games (no prep) and task cards. I'm starting to get into roll and cover multiplication practice for math facts. I need to find some new games too - thanks for the hint about a deck of cards, never thought of that before.

    Thanks to your hubby!

  3. Love the idea of the Place Value War. I pinned this because I think my kids would really enjoy playing this. Thanks for sharing!
