Excellent Resource for Grades 3 - 6!
Ebook + Templates
The term "math station" can be a little misleading because it implies that a specific game or activity takes place in a certain location in the room. We envision elaborate "centers" around the room where students go to complete activities and tasks. Who has time to create those cute little centers? And even if we had the time, what middle grades teacher has enough room to set up all those centers?! For the purposes of this book, the term "math station" refers to a set of directions and materials that students can take to any location in the room to complete. They can even complete the activities at their own desks!
Differentiation is the buzz word in education, but the challenge is finding the time to plan and prepare activities that meet the needs of all of our students. Students in the middle grades (3- 8) need differentiation as much as younger students, but figuring out how to differentiate can be a daunting task. Adding math stations to your instructional program can be an effective way of meeting diverse needs and finding the time to work with small groups of students on targeted skills.
All three of these products are included in the Math Stations Combo. You can click on each cover to preview the individual items.
Math Stations for Middle Grades includes over 2 dozen math games and activities in a variety of math content areas. You'll also find blank blackline masters for game cards. However, if you would like even more activities, including the directions, printables, and answer keys, you'll find lots of games in my Math Center Resources custom category on TpT.
These pictures were taken of my 5th graders as they were working in Math Stations. You can see their Math Station Logs in some of the pictures!
