Put an End to All of Your
Math Center Woes
5 EASY TO FOLLOW STEPS that Will Save You Time, Help Get You Organized and Prevent Overwhelm

Are you an elementary teacher looking for the most impactful, yet efficient way to meet the needs of all your students?

If your answer is yes, then you know it can be a real challenge because our students come to us at many different skill levels.

So, let me get straight to the point.

I'm sure you've heard the words "differentiate" or "differentiation" thrown around 1,000 times! The real question you may be asking is "HOW do I meet the needs of ALL my kids?"

Implementing meaningful math centers in your classroom will help you do that very thing, PLUS so much more!

DID YOU KNOW?

When math center time is implemented intentionally, it not only helps students grow academically but it also

Meets the Needs of All Your Students

Offering a variety of engaging and standards-based centers to your students helps them practice and review the skills they need for mastery.

Makes Teacher-Led Small Groups Possible

While the majority of your students are engaged at their centers, you have the time needed to work with small groups of students, allowing for even more opportunities to increase student growth.

Fosters a Love of Math

Unfortunately, there are many students that either fear or hate math. Carving out time for students to reinforce math concepts through play and providing scaffolds throughout makes math less intimidating and more fun.

Encourages Math Talk

When students work collaboratively at stations, they benefit greatly from talking to a partner or team members. This is an awesome time for students to build academic vocabulary.

Sounds AWESOME, right?

Time to kick in a dose of reality.

As a teacher, you know how overwhelming it can be trying to fit everything into your instructional day...especially centers.

You've hunted for the best bargains on plastic containers, bought several shiny new math center games, and laminated all the stuff. You had strong intentions to do math centers every day like clockwork.

However, the truth is that there are many moving parts that can end up feeling like too much and leaving you completely exhausted.


The 4 Math Center Myths

Myth #1: It's Too Chaotic

Loud voices…Off task students…Constant interruptions. Is this what you envision when you think about center time? It doesn't have to be that way. When implemented the right way, you can expect to see your students having meaningful conversations while monitoring their own behavior.

Myth #2: It's Too Hard

Implementing math centers in your classroom isn't necessarily hard, but there are lots of moving parts and therefore more places to stumble: grouping students, creating routines and prepping materials. If you have a clear plan for each of these areas, you'll be able to CONFIDENTLY clear those hurdles.

Myth #3: There's No Time

While it is true that the school day is packed, there are ways to fit centers into your daily schedule, whether you have 60, 75, 90 or just 45 minutes in your math block. Plus, when you have an efficient organizational system set from the very beginning, you'll save tons of time in the future.

Myth #4: It's Just One More Thing to Do

As a teacher, you may have seen program after program thrown at you over the years. Naturally making you think of math centers as just another thing. The thing is, it's not a program. That's what makes it so awesome! It's simply a time of day dedicated to helping students review and reinforce their math skills, while providing you the time you need to meet with small groups. It's a win-win!

IMPLEMENTING MATH CENTERS IN YOUR CLASSROOM IS ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE AND I WOULD LOVE TO SHOW YOU HOW.

To see exactly what you'll learn in this course scroll to the section entitled Math Centers 101 Curriculum. In this section I detail exactly what's included in each module.

You'll see the 5 Modules and Bonus Lessons broken into separate sections.

The great thing is math centers are not a program and can fit into any daily math schedule. I give you several examples on how to do this in the first module, Pre-Plan Your Routines.

Math Centers 101 is an excellent supplement to provide meaningful activities during your math block.

The video lessons are not standards related. They are best teaching practices, like planning and how to use data to differentiate.

The grade level math centers and activities that are included are based on the Common Core standards. But let me let you in on a little secret…if your state changed from Common Core, most likely your standards are still very similar or "Common Core Lite".

Great question. YES! Guided math is simply a framework for teachers to differentiate instruction.

Just like in guided reading, the teacher leads a small group of students while other students are working in centers. Your kids need quality workstations to engage in and that's where Math Centers 101 steps in.

The resources provided are two-fold. The lessons and support printables will assist you in managing your guided math block, while the included math games and activities will provide meaningful ways for kids to practice and review grade level math skills.

Anyone who wants to grow their students' math confidence and see student gains.

So, if you…

  • Are a brand new teacher and don't know where to start
  • Want to minimize disruptions during your small group time
  • Need an organizational system to make your center time run smoothly
  • Want your students to be more accountable and talk about math
  • Are having a hard time finding quality math games and activities

Then Math Centers 101 is for you!

Because I know teacher life is busy, I tried to keep each video lesson short (5 to 10 min.) and to the point.

You could binge them all in one day, or pace yourself and tackle one module per week.

Each module includes action steps so that you can implement the strategies and techniques I teach as you go.

Most definitely! You can watch the training videos as many times as you like. Plus, if I ever add any updates you'll get those for free.

Yep! Math Centers 101 comes with a 7-day Money Back Guarantee. My hope is that you will see the transformation in your classroom and your students.

If you watch the videos and complete the action steps but are still not satisfied within 7 days, you will receive a refund. However, if you've downloaded any of the games, task cards or problem-solving activities, refunds can't be granted.

I'm going to keep it real. Sometimes you have to invest in the right tools and resources to get the outcomes you want.

Math Centers 101 is a step-by-step system that is jam packed with EVERYTHING you need to ensure that your kids are engaging in meaningful math centers.

The choice is yours.
