Groovy Cat goes back to school and this year he is adding excitement to my hands on math center.
In the process of moving and redesigning my classroom this year the math center was in need of a face lift and Groovy Cat was just what it needed.
What do we have on the shelves
To start off with we have a tub filled with targets dollar section metal pails. Each pail has different items that can be used with the different activities on the shelf.
We have a basket of the number matching cards and we have laminated the how many buttons sheets so that the children can write and wipe as they count. This is a fun way to get your little ones counting and matching numbers.
Clipping rings so children will be able to count and identify the amounts by using cloths pins. Oh and those little fingers will be working on those fine motor skills all at the same time. Win! Win!
I laminated the counting mats so that we could count and write, wipe and rewrite as many times as we wanted.
One to one correspondence with 10 frame counting mats.
I laminated the groovy button graphing mat. So that children could graph and re-graph as many times as they wanted to.
A class must have my Roll It, Count It and Write It mats. Also included in the center is the Adding and Subtracting mats.
This is always a class favorite.
Making patterns with Groovy Cat
Since our little ones are still learning about color we made some groovy color jars to sort all of those groovy colors with.
If you are looking for a way to spice up that math center for the new year look no further. This packet has everything you will need to get that center up and running in no time for the new year.
You won't even need to make the labels we have those all ready for you too. Just download and print.
