Kindergarten Math Centers

My students need Early Math Match-Ups, Counting Money Puzzles, and a Jumbo Time Timer to keep them engaged during math center time.

My Students

My students are energetic Kindergarten students. They arrive at school each day with a thirst for knowledge and a desire to play. I love teaching Kindergarten. The children love school, they love to learn, and they love their teacher :)

Almost all of my students come from low-income homes.

They have an uphill battle when it comes to academics and staying in school. While some of my students have strong support systems at home, many of my students do not. During their first years in school I try to make school a warm and inviting place. I encourage their love of learning early on, and I try to keep them highly engaged and excited about their time in school.

My Project

I have requested three math centers and a timer to help the children keep track of their time in each math center. The math centers I have requested will allow the children to apply their new knowledge of shapes, money, and time. They will match the puzzle pieces in small groups, which will allow the children to work together and have fun while using these hands-on materials. The timer will help the children understand the amount of time they will stay in each math center before rotating to the next center.

These new materials will help the children stay engaged and enjoy their time while in math centers.

Earlier in the year we only had worksheets for the children to use, which were not developmentally appropriate. With the new math centers we have slowly been funding, the children are able to use age appropriate and hands-on materials to practice their new skills.
