Centering on Math

My students need math manipulatives and games, like Hot Dots Quiz Cards and a Place Value Discovery Can, to use in centers so they can strengthen the math skills learned in class.

My Students

Dice, flashcards, puzzles, games, technology.... These are all manipulatives to use as center activities to perpetuate and extend math skills that students have previously learned. Wouldn't you rather play a game than do another worksheet?

I teach a looping class of 19 second grade students in a moderate poverty school in central Florida.

There are 500+ students at the school coming from a variety of cultures, backgrounds, and diverse family situations. Within the class the students have a wide variety of academic abilities and many diverse interests.

My Project

Math centers are a fun, engaging way for students to practice Common Core standards skills learned in class. With such a wide array of abilities in the class, I need a variety of ways to reach the needs of all the students. Having a time for math centers allows me to pull small groups and work with students individually and solve misunderstandings. Most primary aged students are very visual and need to see pictures to understand a difficult math problem. Using math manipulatives and games will help students to understand those harder problems through practice. The resources bought will used to strengthen core math concepts in a center format.

My students thrive on learning by doing.

They love using technology to improve their math skills. By providing the students fun learning tools to use in centers, they will strengthen their math skills, and their confidence will soar.
