So, if Chapter 1 and 2 was the "Why", and...Chapter 3 was the "How", Chapter 4 must be the "What." What do we do in these Math Stations?
Ms. Diller states, quite clearly, that these activities should be familiar and routine, but you keep them going all year long by adding new materials.
This makes sense with the way I do things already in my literacy stations. Those of you who are familiar with some of my literacy stations, know I have a few predictable formats. However, I change the words and/or clipart to keep it engaging and appropriate for my students.
Some of you in the blog-o-sphere expressed your worry over losing your themes if you switch to Math Work Stations. So last week I posted this FREEBIE. If you missed it, you can grab it by clicking on the picture.
These stations are designed around summertime... Yipeeee! But you can image having the same activities with a different thematic set of graphics. In fact, I am already creating some Back-To-School Math Work Stations centered around the concepts in this chapter. Back-to-School? Bite my tongue!!!
Here is another FREEBIE for ya! Click the photo to download.
Your students will illustrate the sentences in this counting book.
Thanks to Fran for hosting this week's chapter. I honestly had more ideas... then I saw her post and scrapped them. Her post and resources are A.MA.ZZZZING!!! Please hop over to her blog to check them out!
