Math Centers for 1st grade

Does any one know a website like FCRR.org for math? I need Math center ideas that are EASY to do. I already do Reading Centers in the morning so looking for math centers to do in the afternoon. Trying something new this year. I will have math in groups, one group wth me, one at centers and the last group doing seatwork. Does anyone have any ideas for easy seatwork for these students?

How are you other 1st grade teachers teaching Math this year? Eager to hear and learn new ideas.
Thanks, LvT

I have one group doing math journal. which is a problem i either self create or get from edhelper. i read to them and have them solve it in their journals. It's very short but i make them glue it in, write the date on it and read through their older work to make sure they finish on time. We use envision so it comes with centers so I teach the higher group first while the lower 2 finish journal and practice pages. They also have a practice page inside of a clear sheet protector and they do it and when they are done erase it, and try it again. and i've taught them how to play counting games using dice and spinners with a + on one side and a - on the other side.

I have done math centers that past two years and I love it. I prefer 3 groups rather then 4 because of time too. I teach with everyday math and together we do quick mental math and a fast math review then we move into centers. I explain the seat work first to the whole group and then I send my lowest group to their desks to work on their seat work first so that they remember the instructions that I just gave. My middle group goes to the math game and my high group meets with me. I teach my high group a new concept (expand on the lesson of the day) and then send them off to practice it with a new math game. Then I meet with my lowest group and they bring their desk work to me so that we can review it quickly and move on to learning the new math concept of the day. Then they go off to play a review math game and I meet with my middle group and teach them the concept of the day. We rotate 3 times and I spend the most time with my lowest group.

Hope that makes sense how I typed it. This is a great way to differentiate your instruction rather than teaching to a variety within the entire class.
Have fun!
