Thank you for joining me in my I Heart Math Centers series of posts! I am excited to launch this set of posts where, one by one, I’ll share all of my math centers that are used in my 5th grade math class. Each day this week, I will be showing off one of my centers as well as giving away the item in which I am showcasing. Thanks for reading along!!!
Today’s post is my “I Can Game” Center! For this center, I purchased the “I Can 5th Grade Math Games Bundle” from One Stop Teacher Shop. Now, I’ll be honest, I have a TpT addiction and have made a LOT of purchases and this is seriously my favorite. I am in awe of how complete and perfect this product is! Let me give you an example of the thoroughness of the product in the picture below!
Included in the product are four versions of the same questions. In the image above, the first version is just a simple decimal problem where students would work it out and record their answer. The second version includes a QR Code for technology rich classrooms to allow students to self check as they complete the problems. The third and fourth cards are the same question with multiple choice options. The fourth card also includes a QR Code for self checking.
In my classroom my students complete the multiple choice version with QR Codes. This allows them to choose five cards of their choice and record them on the recording sheet for this center. I use a different recording sheet than what is provided in the product to fit in with our classroom procedures described here. When they complete a question or set of questions, they scan the QR and mark their paper with a check or an x.
If you follow my blog, you have probably read about my Bubble Pages. I use the I Can Math Games as part of their Bubble Page activities. What I love about this product is that I can switch out jars depending on the skill we are currently working on or one that I see needs a review! This bundle contains Order of Operations, Place Value, Multiplying and Diving Whole Numbers, Decimals, Addition and Subtraction of Fractions, Multiplication and Division of Fractions, Classifying 2D Figures, Coordinate Planes, Measurement, and Volume!
