Wishlist Wednesday - Math with Linking Cubes


One of my favorite math centers to always have out, is a unifix cube math tub!


If you want to see how I run my Math Centers, check out {THIS} post.


I keep my cubes in a tub, like this, for my classroom organization.
(check out {THIS} post to see more on how my classroom is organized)

I keep a set of bags already labeled in the bucket so I can just grab one and fill it and the kids know which bag (or bags) to use for the center.



Some of my favorite activities are...

Place Value


And you can go even further with them writing out the math for the numbers. 


Race to 100...adding a dice in the mix makes it more fun, too!


And extend it by writing math problems with 2 or 3 addends!


In the beginning of the year, I like to use the "all the ways to show the number..."


You can do comparing numbers, too.



10 Frame addition - they love using spinners!


Missing addends...


Missing addends up to 10..


Making 10 to add up to 20. 


Part-Part-Whole


Graphing....

This set looks like a great way to use all those cubes I have just laying around. These ideas will keep our math rotations fresh throughout the year.

Most of my fun has simply revolved around the extra time I have to be with my family. I have a short 3 week break, so even the luxery of sleeping in or staying up late has been fun for me. :)

Well school has only been over for 6 days and so I am still cleaning up my classroom. I can't wait to enjoy my summer though. I love all the ideas in this pack and my students would love to use these activities while rotating during guided math. As always thanks for all that you do!

Thanks for these cool worksheets. With the 50 percent of, there will be more cool activities for my students to do in the classroom. I would like to also thank you for a very detailed description of your work with these exercises. I hope that my kids will be happy to finally combine learning and entertainment. Math is a very challenging subject, that’s why it is important to help kids with confidence in learning. I think that having bettered their math scores, students would also find a way to order a custom essay online to develop their writing skills.
