This Week's Math Stations ... Money, Weight and Time!

Each week the kids have 4 different math stations they go to. On Mondays we discuss and practice the different stations they will spend the rest of the week going to as a whole group on the carpet. They spend the next four days going to one station a day and working on the skills that we went over Monday. This week's stations were ...

Using balance scales to compare the weights of different items and seeing how many grams different items weighed. 

At another math station, the kids review counting money by counting pennies and matching the number that went with how many pennies they counted. They had to count up to 15 pennies in this station.

At a third math station, students drew number cards and had to fill in five frames (up to 20) with pennies that matched the number drawn.

At their final math station, which is at my table, students practiced showing me times I gave them, then making their own times to show me. Once we went over seven different times on the clock, they got to pick their own time and glue down the hands, then write the time shown on their clock. We only worked on "o'clock" times this week since it was our first introduction.
