Summer Math Centers and a Summer Countdown!

We are on the countdown in my room.  We are down to 13 1/2 days! This week in math centers I have my Summer Math Centers Unit.  In one center, students are skip counting.  They choose a number card and then a different card that tells them to skip count by 5's, 10's or 100's. Then they write the next 5 numbers on their paper.  Here is a picture of the skip counting activity.

The good thing about this center is that you can use it over and over because they will draw a new combination of the number and what they skip count by each time they play. AND, it is summer themed which is great!

The next center was 3 digit addition with and without regrouping.  Students wrote the problem on their paper, solved and then matched the answer card to the problem......summer themed!

The last center is a summer themed word problem activity.  Students have to write the equation with a symbol, solve and then match the word problem to the answer card....Summer themed!!!!!!
This unit has 5 math centers in all. Besides the skip counting, 3 digit addition and word problems, there is a center on money and one on 3 digit subtraction. I have summer themed reading centers too.  You can see both sets of centers in my TPT store.  Click the link here for the math centers
So if you are ready to count down the days, like we all are, you can make my Sunny Summer Countdown.   He is cute and we all get excited as the countdown chain gets shorter and shorter! 
If you want to see the file, it's in my TPT store. Click the link here!
I'll show you the summer literacy centers tomorrow.  What do you all do to count down the days until summer? Leave me some feedback! 


  1. Love the summer math centers idea. I have nothing summer themed prepared at this point so I decided to celebrate a different holiday each day the last week of school. It is a great way to use all the themed stuff I made for other holidays one more time. The kids get a kick out of it.
