MathCenter Linky Party

Head on over to Chalk Talk and check out the Math Workstation Linky Party, there are a lot of wonderful ideas to spice up your math centers!

My math center is a pumpkin themed pattern block center.  I start this lesson by reviewing a variety of shapes, and we discuss how to create shapes from other shapes. Using patter blocks I give students some time to build a variety of pumpkin faces using pattern blocks. Students choose their favorite face, then trace it on to the pumpkin.  The shapes can then be painted in.  In the end we graph together how many of each shape were used, then we discuss our results.   ENJOY :)
