I know that I have posted about math centers already this week but, those were the centers that I did LAST week.
Remember me, the one who is trying to get caught up on posting stuff??
in 1st grade we are really hitting CCSS 1.OA(represent & solve problems using addition & subtraction) really hard!
We have been introducing & using MANY different representations to solve equations.
So...you know me...
I just had to make some math centers to help us along!
Here they are...
This one is counting on. They start at the given number & count on using the markers on the card. After they figure it out they record their equations & answers on the sheet & color the marker to match the color on the card. Easy peasy!
Here they are writing equations that are represented on a tens frame. They pick a card, record the equation in the correct place, & solve it.
This is my trickiest center...I don't know if you are familiar with math mountains- they are kinda the same as number bonds. Anyway~ they have to trace the mountain to match the mountain on the card. Then, they write the given numbers & solve for the unknown number.
Number Line addition. They choose a number line, write the equation that is represented, & solve.
So, there you have it, FOUR representations that are kid friendly & that my firsties are finding success with!
I must say that there is nothing fancy about them. They're just plain, simple, & straightforward math centers. If you were looking for cute, it's just not in this one...sorry!
With that being said...
I'm feeling generous...
you want a copy of them??
You can have them for free! Woo hoo!
Just leave me a comment with your email & I will send them out to ya!
But hurry...I'm only sending them out to those of you that comment before I get home from school on Thursday (8/15)!!
Oh, No! Time is up! So sorry you missed it...maybe next time!! :)
