What are your math centers?

I have 86,000 ideas for literacy centers, but I'm lost on math centers. I like for centers to be predictable and low-prep/low maintenance. I like reusable materials and paperless, when possible. The ones I used in kindergarten won't really work.

I realize you asked this a month ago, but I wanted to reply in case you still need ideas. I have four stations.
- Meet with teacher
- Math journal (answering a math question in their notebook)
- Math game (either a store bought game or one I printed and laminated from TPT)
- iPad (using a math app)

I have 4 stations-

Teacher
Technology (we use Prodigy usually; they love it and it's free!)
Math tubs (I use mostly task cards from TPT)
Fact Practice (flashcards, dominoes where they add the numbers, roll dice and add them, etc.)

In the past I have sometimes used additional stations:

Problem solving -task cards asking them to solve and explain their thinking
Composing numbers- give them a number and have them compose it several different ways

Do you teach a whole class lesson and then move into the stations? How long is your block?

Magic math

I keep looking at the magic math bundle from Amy Lemons on TPT. It has interactive math notebook pages, story problems, I Can statements, vocabulary conections, assessment pages and more. These would be great for math workshop rotations/stations. The bundle is pricey $128 .
Check it out. What do you think?
I also like her Write On Bundle and Rooted In Reading Bundle for 2nd grade.

The MATH acronym is an awesome idea! Thanks for sharing!

I always have a math facts/fluency station using playing cards or dice. Kids love it and it is paperless.
