Math Stations this week

Add caption
My kids LOVE math stations! They are so busy working that I have no problem working in small groups! We have some great stations from Lakeshore that have some wonderful manipulatives included! Here are the stations we did last week:
 I forgot to take a picture of it, but we have this station where the kids copy and extend the patterns. You could take it a step further and have them label the pattern.
One of their FAVORITES! They used the colored beads to create patterns onto pipe cleaners. It was also great for those fine motor skills =)
A Lakeshore station- they could sort the trains by: the size of the animals inside, colors of the train and the animals that were in the train. (Not pictured: They is also another set of cards for patterning!)
Lakeshore instant learning center: The kids used the foam shapes to finish the patterns. (They could also copy the pattern below.)
We just began our Numbers unit... so I just had them use the foam-dough to form the letters and quantity on the mats.

A puzzle where the kids can finish the pattern.

Next week we will have more centers to work on numbers 0-5! =)
