Back to School Digital Math Centers
Hey, y'all. As we head back to school, centers and checking student work is going to look a little different this year. Different can feel scary, but it doesn't have to be!
If you've followed me for awhile, you'll know how big of a fan I am of Boom cards. They're self checking, easy to differentiate, and give you and your students instant feedback.
This year, we'll be starting off using this platform right away. Students can work on them anywhere, which makes it super easy to use for distance learning or blended learning. The kindergarten back to school set is perfect for getting students used to using the app (which can be accessed on computers or mobile devices). Students practice counting, identifying shapes, and comparing numbers (which number is bigger, not using the comparing signs).
First graders work on reviewing simple addition and subtraction within 10, counting to 20, and skip counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's. Second graders review adding and subtracting within 20, comparing numbers, and number order.
These are great for whole class practice in using Boom or reviewing skills, for center work, or for small group intervention. Each of these sets is also available for use on Google Classroom as well. Click the links for kindergarten back to school, 1st grade back to school, and second grade back to school.
Missing numbers was always a big thing when I taught kindergarten in Texas. There is a set for numbers to 20 (great for pre-k and kindergarten) and a set for numbers to 100 (great for 1st or 2nd grade). Students look at the leaves, then click and drag the number that is missing to the empty leaf. It's very similar to summer missing sets.
And when your students are settled in to the routine a bit and everything turns apples and pumpkins and lattes (oh my!), grab these September math centers. Kindergarteners will enjoy counting objects, using ten frames, comparing numbers within 10, and practicing number order.
First graders will love adding and subtracting numbers, practicing skip counting, counting base ten blocks and 1 more/1 less, 10 more/10 less.
And second graders practice the same skills as the first grade set, but they'll use bigger numbers. These are also available for use with Google Classroom. You can find each set here: Kindergarten September centers, 1st grade September centers, and 2nd grade September centers.
Each of these digital centers work well with the print-based centers in my Teachers Pay Teachers store as well. With so many unknowns for the school year, it's a great idea to have options for students to show their work.
I am always adding new resources to my store so be sure to follow me on TPT for all the latest updates, ideas, and resources. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you got some new ideas for your classroom. Have a wonderful week and I'll talk to you soon.
