Learn to Love Math Centers for 5th Graders

My students need centers, boards, games, and manipulatives for math learning centers.

My Students

Math Centers? In 5th grade? Unheard of, or just what they need? My students are struggling students just on the cusp of passing the NJ state mandated test. We want to add math centers to our day to make learning more fun and help us pass.

I teach in southern NJ in a English Second Language inner city school.

We have 17 different languages spoken in my school. Most of my students are first generation Americans. My students are low income and receive free breakfast and lunch. Most of my students' parents never finished high school, so getting a good education for their child is very important to them and they push their child to do well in school.

My Project

My students' curriculum is mandated by the Core Common Standards and often by 5th grade, math is basically pencil and paper work. I feel like we are so close to passing the state math test that making math a little more exciting would help my kids pass. I want to set up math learning centers to do during math instruction. I chose math games, pre-made centers, and manipulatives so that they can practice skills I have taught in fun ways.

This project is important to me and my kids for their math skills as well as their self esteem.

Doing well and passing the NJASK will make them feel so proud of themselves. In the process, they can just have fun learning math skills and socializing.
