Greetings fellow educators!
This year, I noticed that my students needed a bit more specific practice with some mathematical skills and I wanted to have something I could use to model thinking for them and then release them to independent practice. I do a lot of partner work in my class as a form of support, so the activity needed to be able to be monitored by a student and checked.
Introducing my AREA CENTER for third grade!
This center is print and go! It can be used with page protectors and dry erase markers. You could also choose to print out the recording sheet and use the students’ work for a grade. This is great for small group intervention or even independent tasks.
This center comes with one inch grid paper, but for you to model with it, you will need some one inch tiles. I put the recording sheets in page protectors and laminate the activity sheets for durability. You’ll also need dry erase markers if you’re reusing the center, or pencils if you’re asking students to turn in the printables.
If you enjoy this style of center, you might be interested in these other third grade math center topics to support your instruction.
