Math sorts - really like this idea!

Game: true/false math facts I would use this when teaching about adding multiple numbers. I would have students do this in math centers. I really like how students have to work out all of the problems and then decide if they are true or false.

Great visual!

This fun game can be used to help children revise mental math facts, times tables and simple mathematical equations.

Love this! The sticks have different number sentences to make the number. This could easily be adapted to give descriptions of historical people, events, time periods, and then have students sort them.

Math Coachs Corner: Using Math Stretches for a Daily Warm-Up. Just like athletes warm up before a strenuous workout, mathematicians need to have a warm-up to get their brains focused on math.

I love every single thing about this activity. It gets the kids physically involved in learning how numbers work together. This is a thing of beauty!

Addition Strategy Mat! Much nicer looking than the one I use now. The blog post that goes with it has good ideas that would work well for sequencing summer math tutoring lessons around.

Ideas for Math Centers

math journals

You need as many Post-its as problems you will give, a Sharpie marker, and a pencil. Write the the first problem on the front of a Post-it note at the start (maybe this one is a different color). Now write the answer on another Post-it with a new problem on the underneath (in pencil). Students have to work problems and then search for the answers. Great way to get students doing math and get them up and moving!
