Math Stations-Shape

One of my goals this summer is to review how I am doing Math Stations and look for ways to improve them.  I am starting at the beginning.  I redid my Shape Stations first.  I decided to focus my shape stations on the  Mouse Stories by Ellen Stoll Walsh.


My math shape stations include:
·      Shape Bingo
·      Shape Memory
·      Mouse Counting Jars
·      A Mouse Shape Spinner Game
·      Shake and Make A Mouse
·      Say It and Draw It
·      Number Power

The stations focus on the basic shapes: circle, rectangle, triangle, square, oval, hexagon, and diamond.  There is also a review of identifying numbers 0-20. 

I also wanted to share how I plan to organized the stations for next year as well.  First I purchased these drawers.

Then I purchased these plastic folders that the children will carry to the tables to work with.  “I Can” directions are on the back.   When the unit is over I just need to collect the folders and put then away in the file cabinet for next year. 
 I put green dots on the folders to indicate that the folders are on level for everyone.  

I am planning on purchasing this Mouse Unit from Doodle Bugs Teaching for enrichment as soon as TPT is working correctly.  


  1. I like the center organization drawers. I'm hopping over to TpT to check out the Mouse Unit!

  2. I love the way you organized them in the poly clasp folders. What a great idea!!

    I am new to the blogging world....

  3. I am always looking for ways to keep my centers organized! How do you keep each center together? How do you know which piece goes with which center?
