I love using math centers in my classroom no matter how old my kiddos are. There are many fun and engaging ways to have your students practice math concepts, and math centers is one of them.
If you are on summer holidays now it is a great time to prep for the upcoming year. Or if you are still teaching, like myself (we are done June 29th) these math activities are a great way to review concepts that were already taught. The soccer theme is sure to catch the attention of any student. Students will score goals as they answer math questions. Included are 2 different math centers, one focusing on subtraction with regrouping and the other focusing on multiplication facts.
There are 2 ways to complete each center!
Your students can either complete the centers independently as they sort the soccer ball equations
They can play with a partner. Each person takes a goal to match soccer balls with. They shuffle the soccer balls and then choose one to answer. If their answer matches their goal they keep it. If it doesn’t they return it to the pile. The first student to get the predetermined number of goals wins!
The centers are super easy to make. All you have to do is print them off (I recommend on card stock), laminate, and then cut out the pieces. I store my center games in large Ziploc bags so I can easily see the contents.
