write the room: Get students moving around the classroom with this math write-the-room activity that will have students engaged and practicing their addition skills.
After making my Unscramble the Room sight word activity, I realized that I hardly have any math write-the-room activities. That’s when I thought of this Add Around the Room center.
Write around the room activities are so much fun because students get to move their bodies and practice a skill at the same time. I also love how easy they are to set up- just place the cards in spots that your students can see, and you’re done!
Write the room
I place the recording pages on a clipboard so that it is easy for students to write. They can take them around the room with them as they find the cards.
I stick the cards around the room using tape. I make sure I place them where students can see them- but I do try to make a few of them harder to find. I don’t want to make it too easy for them!
Sometimes I even have a student place them around the room when I don’t have enough time to do it myself. They get really excited about having to do that job. I have them take down the cards when we are done. That way I don’t have to find them all.
This pack will be a fun addition to your math centers. Students will add two dice together to get the sum and write the math sentence on their worksheet. They keep going until they have found all the cards and filled up their recording page.
