I am a 4th grade math teacher. I love engaging my students with new ideas. My students love working in stations. I have just started my store in teachers pay teachers. It is filled with task cards and worksheets. Check it out.

Why use math stations??
I think it is important for the children to be moving around and doing activities during math class. It is not always the most popular way of teaching in my school, but I truly feel the students learn…ALOT!
So in my classroom I teach a 5 minute lesson. We break right up into 4 stations. I have a teacher time station where I work with 4 students in a small group. This is a great way for me to see what the children know and don’t know. It also gives me time to give that individualized attention.
My other stations are a spiral of what we have learned. I will always use a QR Code station. This is a great way for them to monitor their work. Sometimes my stations are a day and sometimes they can last a week. On Friday I try to do a “ketchup” day!
