    math center ideas

    Some simple math center ideas: make a grid of 20 pics (whatever theme)- for a table of 4 chilren, you would need 2 grids (2 kids ea) - have student roll die, cover with his/her marker that many spaces - game is complete when grid is full - child with most markers, wins. I noticed that at the end of kindergarten, some children still have to count the dots on a die, so I think this is a great way to get to know them.
    Another grid game: Mark a grid from 1 to 6 - roll a die- color in the # that appears on the die (die/# correspondence) - see which # you most frequently roll. (you could make a guessing game out of it, too -- which # do you think you'll roll the most)

    I also found on the internet a printable connect four game - just circles all over - have 2 children take turns trying for four in a row, horiz, vert, diag. (you could even do this w/ letter recogn or even just # recogn -see Kelly's Kindergarten - games by Billy Reid)
    hope you could understand this - hard to explain such a simple game!!
