Math work stations

I am in the process of introducing some new activities into our math work station tubs. The children were becoming bored with three or four of the activities, so it was time to change some of them out.


This is an activity from a site called K-5 math resources. I printed out the dinosaur pictures and then cut them apart. The children need to put the numbers back in order to complete the puzzles correctly.


This game is another from the same site. It’s called race to trace. The children each have one of these sheets and they also have a die and a dry erase marker. The first child rolls the die and traces one of the numbers that they roll. They keep taking turns until one of them has traced all their numbers.


This last activity is one I created. It’s called roll a pumpkin. Again the children share one large die but they each have their own pumpkin mat (these can be found on my blog under pattern blocks). They take turns rolling the die and consulting the answer sheet. The answer sheet tells them what block each number corresponds with. They then put that block on their pumpkin sheet and then the other player takes a turn.

  1. Love these math station ideas as this is the area that is usually a challenge for me. Thank you for sharing your ideas!


  2. Would love to use your pattern block pumpkin idea but couldn’t find it on your blog. Also, thank you so much for the website with activities based on the Common Core. If you know of any others, please let me know. Thanks again!


  3. Kristen,
    How do I get a copy of the dinosaur puzzle you cut apart where the children have to put it back in order? I couldn’t find the page to copy. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful site. Pam


  4. Kristen,
    I did find the site for the dinosaur puzzle. Sorry for sending the email. Pam


  5. I can’t find the dinosaur to print out or the pumpkin page. Are you going to share these?

      Hi Cindy,
      I put a link to the dinosaur page in that posting. For the pumpkin page, check out the PDF tab at the top or search for pumpkin on my blog…I’ve posted them several times before.

      Kristen 🙂


  6. Please let me know if you can share these.
