3rd Grade Debbie Diller style Math Station


 
After many kind and convincing emails and comments...
I'm happy to announce that I have created and posted
3rd Grade Math Stations for SEPTEMBER.
Similar to the 1st and 2nd grade stations that I made after reading 
Debbie Diller's Math Stations book.


Each month will contain 12 different math stations from the 4 critical areas of the common core curriculum.  Page 1 is an outline for the month to let you know what those 12 standards are.

Each station contains a Task Card with instructions, a hands-on activity, independent assignment to complete (in a student booklet for easy management) and a game board for students to practice their basic math facts until the timer ends the station work time.

I have posted my management and organization ideas here.
I posted a math station rotation chart for anyone interested.
My summer task list has officially begun with OCT, NOV, DEC etc.
However, I wanted to post SEPTEMBER before summer break. 

I hope they are what you'd hoped for.
The skills will progressively become harder with each month with
the structure remaining the same.

I am sooooooo excited that you have decided to do 3rd grade math stations. I currently teach 2nd grade and have used your stations all year. I was moved to third grade for next year and I am thrilled to have this resource to use!

How do you plan for this time of day using your math stations? I bought September for 2nd grade and I'm anxious to start planning!
Thanks.

Hi Anonymous ;)
I do 1 rotation of math stations M-Th from 2:30-2:50. That is rotating chart, getting tools, completing station and clean up. It is the most productive part of the day because the kids are so excited and move, move, move. We complete September as a whole group. Box in the center of a huge circle of kids and teacher. We complete the station (hands on, talk card, etc.) We model it a ton for kids to refer back to. Then we complete the booklet as a group also. The spinner is a fun way to pull the group back together and discuss a-has.
I hope you and your students enjoy them!! I'd love to hear ;)

Hi Lory, I used to be the Art Specialist at your school and I had the privilege of teaching your cute daughter. I have since moved, but the exciting thing is I am going to be teaching 3rd Grade this year. I look forward to using your Math Centers you have created. I always loved seeing what you were doing in your classroom. So cute, creative, and organized!
