3 Great Guided Math and Multiplication Center Activities!

Posted on July 19, 2012. Filed under: Common Core, Graphic Organizers, Guided math, Math Centers, Mathematical Proficiency | Tags: , , , , , , |

Here are 3 Great Guided math and Multiplication Center Activities that you absolutely should do with your students.  In a guided math group you can facilitate a discussion around the activities and notice where their mathematical thinking is at the time.  Take notes to remind yourself.  In Math Centers, students should be building on their conceptual understanding, practicing for procedural fluency, working on a variety of strategies, talking, discussing, defending and challenging each others’ mathematical thinking and all the while building up their own mathematical confidence!

1. Power Towers!  A must…Students love this game (I wrote about Power Towers in a different post).

2. Roll a Fact!  Have lots of colored pencils:)

3.  Show Me The Fact!  – This is a great center activity.  They can do this alone, with partners or in a group on a big poster!  I would have them illustrate at least 3-5 facts at a time.

Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki
