    Hi all... does anyone have any good "Math Center" ideas - maybe from websites or books?

    Thanks in advance.

    We use Everyday Math, so I incorporate the card games. I find that 4th graders need practice with place value.

    Here is an idea I've been thinking of using. Take a LA writing site like kerpoof and use if for your kids to write math problems. My students love kerpoof for their creative writing, so why not use it for writing real world math problems? There are enough backgrounds and characters to handle all kinds of math stories. They will make a great classroom math book, bulletin board, or laminated practice sheet.
