These fun and engaging math learning centers will reinforce fine motor and math skills all year long. These 18 hands-on activities are easy to prep and use.
Teaching important math skills in kindergarten takes up a lot of programming and planning time. My post Everything You Need to Know About Math Centers gives you more information on what that looks like for me.
I love using math manipulatives to keep students engaged and learning. Snap Cubes (affiliate link) are great for so many reasons- they are easily available, come in all kinds of great colours, reinforce fine motor skills and you can use them to work on a variety of skills.
I put together a pack of activities that use these building cubes to work on different math strains. This will make your planning and prepping easy!
Math Learning Centers
Pick from 18 different activities and work on skills all year long:
Have your students work on counting, number formations, number recognition and more.
3 activities will help work on this skill: counting cards, number towers and Complete the Number Line.
If you are working on 2D or 3D Shapes, these building cards will have students creating them with Building Cubes.
SORTING AND GRAPHING
You can change up how students are sorting, and introduce graphing with these different math centers.
I made it so that you can choose between different work mats, you can choose to pick the ones that suit your needs or do them all!
Have students extend patterns using these cards. You can also have them identify the core and the rule on each card.
ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION
You can start by working on composing and decomposing numbers, you can differentiate your centers by choosing to do numbers to 5 or to 10.
Addition and Subtraction can be worked on by using one of the two different math centers I included.
These symmetry cards are so fun! Students complete the missing half of the images using the building cubes.
Use these measurement cards with different classroom items. Using real world objects will help students understand this concept, and give them great practice.
Use these cards during number talks or have students use them to discuss numbers. They will be able to count, compose and decompose, add, subtract, and use different strategies to talk about numbers.
