postheadericon Math Work Stations- First week of school work stations (part 2)

I hope you had a chance to check out how I run my Math Work Stations.  If you didn't you can view the post here.  Now that you have an idea of what my BUILD rotations look like, let's take a look at what a week of BUILD entails.  Today I will give you a look at what I have planned for my first graders to use the first week of school.  All of the materials and activites were used in Kindergarten.

*I will not officially start this until the third day of school.  This will allow me to give the students an introduction to working in small groups, go over expectations and procedures.


B – Buddy Games - dice roll and color, Chester Raccoon version and Back to School version         The first partner to color his entire picture wins.


U – Using Manipulatives-  exploring with unifix cubes- patterns and more patterns


I – Independent Work - computer time


L – Learning about Numbers- Play Dough Number Mats


D – Doing Math- Teacher Table - when the students come to the teacher table the first week, they will be taking the Grade 1 Placement test, Topic 1 pre-test and completing the Readiness Mats.



Come back next week for a quick look at how I organize my Math stations.
