Workin’ It Wednesday

Hi, Friends! How are ya?

I’m linking up with Corinna to share a little of what we’ve been workin’ with this week!


As if my clipart obsession wasn’t bad enough, I purchased a little set that I thought was absolutely adorable from Melonheadz Illustrating last week. Initially, I bought it to create an encouraging award for a sweet 5th grade friend, but was quickly inspired to use it to create some goodies for my firsties too!


I am a really lucky teacher, who’s had a SUPER {chatty} class this year! No, really….lol! I love my sweet batch of kiddos!!! After grabbing these cute little superheroes, I thought what better to use them for than to have one last hoooorah in math stations!

Our station activities always start with students reading an I CAN statement. For us this serves two purposes….1) understanding what will be expected at the station and 2) reading practice.


We’re reviewing place value AND how to work nicely in a group! (11 more days, 11 more days, 11 more days…..=) The stars on the bottom of the cards are a gentle reminder to make sure our 10’s are on the left when we place the card into a pocket.

Adding to sums of 18…


There’s always one little megamind in each group that I can depend on to “double-check” to make sure the activity was completed correctly. My cute little “Future Teacher” made sure all of these sentences were in the correct place before it was time to clean and move on to the next station! =)


We’re making number sequences…


…and taking a closer look at the hundred chart. 
We’re also continuing to practice procedures because the year is.NOT.over yet!


….like cleaning up correctly. Once, we complete a station rotation, all materials go back into a bucket with the I CAN statement on top….all buckets go back onto the shelf, ready for the next day and we’re off to lunch!

That’s what we’re workin’ with this week! Click the pic below to check out these stations in my little TPT shop, then hop over to Corinna’s and link up to show what you’re workin’ with! 

Enjoy the rest of the week!



  1. What a great activity! I love it. I think this would be perfect for beginning of second grade. I also love the way you have them set up. I really want to start math rotations next year and I am looking for lots of ideas! Thank you so much for linking up :) (I am thinking that blog button needs some work)

  2. These are wonderful math centers! I started math centers this year and will never go back to whole group :) Its so much easier!
    Thanks for sharing!!
    Three Cheers for First Grade!
