More on Workstations

I've continued to work on my math work stations over the past few days and have felt completely overwhelmed at times, but I think I'm starting to see the light.  I've found that there are a lot of things that I already do that would be perfect for math work stations.  I have reorganized my tables again and again, and I think I've finally found a format that will help me plan.
The numbers at the top will be my station numbers, and each row is a different week.  I've been encouraged to realize that many of the tasks I already do will be great for work stations, so I've been busy converting some of my activities into a format that better fits with the work stations.  I already uploaded a Place Value Scavenger Hunt and Place Value Card Sort to TpT, so check it out if you're interested.
I don't want to share anything I'm selling without giving away something too, so here is an activity I'm going to use as a math work station that my students LOVED.  They used to beg me to let them play it over and over again, and I think it did help them develop their mental math and rounding skills.

Thanks Courtney! I don't mind at all. I use Microsoft Word for everything, and the clipart came from Thistlegirl. I bought a license a few weeks ago to start making Smartboard things, and as you can see I'm still procrastinating :)

Ashleigh what grade do you teach? Also what games are you planning on having the kids play on Ipad?

I teach 3rd and finding good apps is one of my summer projects. I wish there was a way to preview them before buying them. I haven't seen any light versions for the ones I'm interested in. I did buy ilive math, which looks neat, but I really haven't worked with it enough to know much about it.

I noticed you have ipads in your workstations. I am getting 10 ipads for this coming school year and I can't wait to use then. Do you have the ipad2? Maybe our kids can Skype.

I honestly don't know what we have. If we do have it I would LOVE to Skype. I think that would be really cool!
