Centers, March, Math

How Would You Use these Math Center Materials?

I always loved setting up different math centers. Centers where students can explore freely while learning and practicing math skills.

March Math Center Materials includes:

  • shamrock number cards (1 – 100 plus blanks to add numbers)
  • counters (individual and groups of ten)
  • math mats (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, counting, and place value)

I’d love to know how you would use them in your classroom!

Would you make one center activity with these materials or multiple center activities? Would you create a center that allows for differentiation? Leave your ideas in the comment section below!
