Math Stations


Math Stations are the kiddos second favorite time of the day!  They last for about 20 minutes after our whole group lesson.  This gives me the opportunity to observe them using the skills taught in whole group;  I record anecdotal notes, pull children for one on one practice, and introduce harder concepts to those children that are ready. This week we've been discussing position words. 

 Kayden and Bradey are sequencing events, then explaining why each picture is in that particular order. 

Emma and Jewel are reviewing skills from our last Topic on sorting.  They are sorting various animals into groups by type.

Katie and Cayden are working on number sense by filling in missing digits on number lines.
 Naomi Kate and Preston are creating patters with chain links.  Patterning in our next Topic.  I use this as a formative per-assessment.  If the students can explain how and why the chains are in a particular order, we can skip to more advance patterning skills right from the beginning. 

Landon and Jolee are practicing counting using one to one correspondence.

Jaxon and Hannah are using measurement tools in the rice bucket to estimate & measure.

Anna and David sorted bears by color then practiced putting them into various pattered rows.  

Kately and Lola practiced spacial awareness and fine motor skills while putting together this puzzle.
Evan and Cameron were matching number words, colors, and numerals to sets.
