Learning how to work with numbers can be stressful to students. Often, this is due to how many numbers there are and all of the different skills to learn. However, math is everywhere in life, so it is vital for students to have a strong understanding. To build this understanding in a stress-free environment, the Number to 100 Math Centers will be incredibly beneficial! These centers will help ensure that when working on numbers to 100, students are supported through enjoyable yet rigorous activities.
Math centers are an incredible way to cover a variety of standards. Specifically, they allow students to practice skills learned throughout the year and reinforce topics that need a little extra review. Additionally, clear, consistent directions allow students to work while the teacher walks around to help or works with small groups. However, planning centers is exhausting. There are so many different aspects to consider and prepare, so teachers may only be able to use them periodically. Thankfully, this resource will provide plenty of high-quality, engaging centers for students when working on numbers to 100!
Math Center Formats
There are 29 center activities in two different formats. First, there are digital options that are all no prep. Second, there are printable centers. To save time and prevent blisters from scissors, each activity has easy-to-cut straight lines.
Math Center Standards
The math centers are broken down by domain and standard to have everything organized. For instance, students will work on counting to 100 by ones and tens. Additionally, they will count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence. This means that students will not always begin counting at one. Since they are working on numbers to 100, it is key to help them work on sequence counting. Furthermore, students will also work on writing numbers from 0 to 100 while using a hundred chart as a resource. When they are ready, there are also centers on counting objects while saying numbers in a one-to-one correspondence. This skill will help students understand that the last number name tells how many total objects there are. Then, students will work on understanding that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one more. Students are going to practice so many standards within the Number to 100 Math Centers. Luckily, they will have hands-on centers and engaging activities to support all of their learning!
Differentiation in Math Centers
Every student learns at a different pace. If students work at a speed that is too fast, they will just become frustrated and overwhelmed. When this happens, they will often develop some math anxiety. However, no teacher wants that! That is precisely why all of these activities can be differentiated to meet the needs of each student. For instance, students may only work at centers within their current skill set. Then, as their knowledge progresses, they will begin working at other centers. Or, students work in the centers but with different instructions. Some students may work on counting by 10’s while others focus on counting by 5’s. Since each teacher knows their classroom the best, they can differentiate the activities to target the current learning level of students.
The Number to 100 Math Centers provide 29 wonderful activities for students. Each math center is driven by essential standards but presented to students in enjoyable ways. Thankfully, this means that students will focus on working on numbers to 100 while loving every minute in the classroom!
