Math Work Stations Chapter 4

Math Work Stations Chapter 4

Fran at Kindergarten Crayons is hosting this weeks blog! Head over there and check out her great items for this chapter. I especially love the math mats. Thank You!!!

I have been busy reading and creating this week. I love Debbie Diller's great activities that she has shared and have been hard at work to create some things to vamp up my math stations. I have included some documents I have created so feel free to use!

1.  How do you support math vocabulary (math talk) at Beginning Number Concepts stations?
Honestly this is an area I plan to work on. I love the talk about it cards. I think that these are so great that I plan on starting with them right away!!

2.  How do your students read, write, order, represent, or compare numbers?  What activities support that?
I have always thought by second grade my students knew most of this coming in and I don't think I placed enough value in this area as I should have. I am changing that this year!

3.  What is your student's favorite number concepts work station/activity?
In the past I don't think I really had a lot of number concepts work stations, I had more geometry, addition and subtraction, and place value. The one activity that I did have already is with number cards and wiki sticks to bend into greater than/less than signs. They love using the wiki sticks to show which one is more. Unfortunately I don't have a picture since everything is at school but I basically had some cards with two numbers and a space in-between where they would place the wiki stick.

I have revamped some of the stations in the book and added my own little twists. If you find any errors, PLEASE let me know. I will fix and re-post. Thanks!!

I am having google docs issues so I posted the link to the document with a picture preview. I was trying to embed the document and I don't think it worked so my back up plan is the download link and the picture.

I posted links to the documents just in case the embedded files are not working!
