# 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.

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

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.

I still can’t find the link to the dinosaur page. I am not sure where I should be looking. I did a search also and didn’t come up with anything. Thank you for sharing the pumpkin puzzle page.

Thank you so much! I am late getting started, but I am trying to get math workstations going this year. I am trying to find the Scholastic items you mentioned. I will call and see if any are still in stock. Also, you had a link to the things you sell,l and I didn’t see any math items there. Could you give me a link to that? Thank you so much for all you do. I love your site.
