Hello! First, I LOVE our own forum!! Okay! So our principal this year wants us to set up math centers for kids who finish their seat work early. I think this will be cool, especially when we do the addition and subtraction drills. Some kids finish it correctly in 10 seconds while others could take the whole morning! :lol: Soooo.... I am blessed to have access to a TON of manipulatives. The problem is I have anywhere from 29-32 students. :help: :help: :help: I thought they could make pattern necklaces w/ Fruit Loops and yarn ~ use the unifix cubes to make patters... the shapes to make designs and patterns... Perhaps roll two dice and add to get the sum? Make up story problems in a math journal? (or is a math journal silly?) Partner up with a buddy and drill on addition/subtraction flashcards? BUT I am unsure of what else to have at a math center. Any and all advise is greatly appreciated!
