I went into school to organize my 2-D flat shape centers for the upcoming week. This week is going to be a lot of modeling with the students. I am going to model 2 centers each day so that the students understand what I want them to do at the centers. Our district uses Growing With Math series, so I will also be implementing this also during my math time. We started August Math Journals last week which is a concentration of writing numbers. I am going to start our September Math journals on Tuesday of this week. A lot of math is planned for this week, but I think the kids will love the hands on activities that I have planned for them. Here are the centers and some 2-D flat activities that I will be doing this upcoming 4 day week.
|These 2 centers are counting 2-D shapes and spinning/graphing 2-D shapes. Students will also say the names of the shapes they are counting and graphing.|
|Another 2 centers that the students will be introduced to this week with the same review as the above 2 centers.|
|Counting the number of sides and graphing/naming 2 -D shapes are the focus on these 2 centers.|
|Graphing/Naming 2-D shapes and Counting the number of corners are the goals of these 2 centers.|
|Using ipods/ipads and graphing/naming 2-D shapes are what the students are going to be doing at this center.|
|Here is what I store my centers in for the week. The M stands for the word Math and the number is the number of center that they go to for that specific day.|
|Here is what my new version of my center organization looks like for this year. I have to make the table color cards yet to move each day. I will have those made by Tuesday so that I can share them with you.|
|Here are the September Math Journals that are all ready to go!!|
|Additional 2-D shape resources that I will be doing this week and next week with the students.|
