Today is my last blog post for my Math Rotations blog series! I’ve had so much fun sharing how I implement Math Rotations with you and hope you have found it helpful. Below I’m sharing a few more tips and a few resources from my TPT Store that I enjoy using with Math Rotations.
- Plan – Math Rotations move quickly. The more you plan and prepare ahead of time the more successful Math Rotations will be.
- Model, Model, Model – I know I’ve said this in other blog posts, but modeling is key. Students need to know what to do and modeling is the best way to do that!
- Differentiate – One of the biggest reasons why I love Math Rotations is it has made differentiation so much easier for me to do each day for each child. Make sure you include this key part in your Math Rotation plans so you are tailoring your instruction to the needs of your students.
- Themed Math Word Problems – I love using these as a part of my Seat Work Rotation. This Bundle includes 9 different sets of story problems geared towards second and third grade. Great way to practice math skills and word problems. You can also buy these story problems individually in my TPT store.
- Learning About Line Plots – Includes practice pages and a hands-on activity where students are practicing their measuring and line plot skills. Great for Seat Work and Activity Rotation.
- Patterns Task Cards – These task cards go great at the Seat Work Rotation. Includes practice building and answering questions about repeating patterns.
- Subtraction Memory – Great game for Game Rotation. Subtraction Memory includes two different sets to help differentiate!
