Counting, Number Sense and
Writing Numbers 0-9
|Christmas Math Center - Writing Numbers|
This math center for Christmas time will provide practice in counting, number sense and writing numbers from 0-9. Pages and spinner show clip art that is in a Christmas style; however, the number pages can be used anytime. And you can make these pages readily available all the time.
Themed centers can heighten your students interest. However, these math centers need to accomplish your teaching goal : providing opportunity and practice in a skill that you have already taught. Math stations can also be an excellent way to immerse some of your students with a task that reinforces direct instruction while you are teaching another small group a similar skill. Learning can be fun and certainly is when brains are thinking and students can have some directed movement that allows them responsibility in their own learning.
Your goals for a math station might be:
- Practice, review and reinforcement in skills previously taught
- Independent skills to complete a given task
