Review – Math Centers Book for K-6
Take It To Your Seat – Math Centers for K-1
I bought this book when I was a public school teacher and used it for with my kindergartners and first graders. I now use it with my 4 year old son. Here is my review.
Each center is very colorful. The directions are included for the centers. Also, each center is self-evaluated, which means that your child can check their answers as soon as they complete the center. This allows you to be free to help other kids who need more help. The centers are fun and easy to assemble. All you need is gallon baggies, bigger paper baggies or another container to put them in. I personally like the gallon Ziploc baggies because, you can close them so that you do not lose any of the pieces. Also, you can store them easier, because they do not take up as much room.
The centers in this book go over such standards as: addition, subtraction, counting, counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s, time, money and more.
The only con that I have about this book is that the standards are a little to low for the grade levels printed on the front. These standards use to be correct for kindergarten and first grade, now with the new common core standards this book is more for Prek and kindergarten. This company has new math center books, (that I haven’t tried), that has standards that are more up to date with the new common core standards.
I highly recommend these books as a supplement to any math program. They are a fun hands-on way to learn math. It will also help fill in the gaps when your child has nothing to do, or you need to be helping someone else. These are easy centers that your child will be able to use on their own, pretty quickly.
