Dice, Dominoes, and Cards Galore! Math Workstation Freebies

As promised on my previous post, I've got some math goodies to share with you! Yes, I know, I should be posting all of my cutesy fall crafts, but I honestly haven't gotten to do ANY yet! Unbelievable, I know! But, I have one fun week ahead of me--bats, pumpkins, spiders, candy corn, and leaves galore! Until we get to all that excitement, here are some math goodies.
 
For the last few years, I've really wanted to teach math small groups, but I just haven't been able to manage it--or maybe I might have been too afraid to try managing it! This year, I decided I just had to jump in, or at least dip in my pretty little toesies! After reading and loving Debbie Diller's Math Workstations book, I have found that I {sadly}cannot make that method work in my classroom--not sure exactly why! Instead, I'm formatting my math workstations and small groups much like my reading--a little mix of Daily 5 inspiration and Debbie Diller, too!  So far, I'm loving it!
 
Here are some of the activities I've added to my dice/dominoes station. They include Roll the Dice Addition and Subtraction, Domino Addition and Subtraction, and Addition Bump!
 


I've also attempted a playing cards station, which has been really successful. I've been teaching the kiddos a new game a week, and they've been doing really well! They also use the posters below to brush up on the game rules in case they aren't sure...Just click to grab yours as well! The games include I Spy Addition, Addition War, Quick Draw, Tens Go Fish, and Tens Memory Match.

 
 
Here is one last freebie--my version of a domino parking lot :) Hope these can make math centers a little more fun in your classroom!
 
 
Hope to be back soon with some Fall Fun! Thanks for stopping by!
