I didn't make this until toward the end of the year last year, so I'm excited to able to use this at the beginning of the year.
This will also be my first week to introduce math work stations. This is a soft introduction, where I will only be introducing half of our first set of work station activities. You'll probably notice that all of the even numbered stations are Roll and Round. I selected this activity, because we've already done it in class, so my students know exactly what to do in this station. My students go to two stations a day, so everyone will get to do something new and something familiar. This makes it much easier on me, because it's just about impossible for me monitor 12 groups, with each group working on a new activity. Next week, I'll introduce the other half, which will be the even numbers, and we can really get rolling with work stations. I'll then begin adding and taking away a new activity each week or so.
