I’m always on the lookout for math stations that will make math workshop run smoothly. Today I’m going to share with you one of my favorite math stations: Math Sorts! Why use math sorts?

- There is no prep! Just print, place at a math station, and you’re done!
- They are organized by standard! You can easily pick what standard you want your students to practice.
- There are two versions that allow you to differentiate as needed.

I introduce math sorting as part of my whole group lessons and also during my small groups. After students understand the concept, I start placing math sorts in the independent center. I display the following sheet at the math station

#### Directions:

DAY 1:

- Write your Name & Date!
- Write your number on the back of each card.
- Cut out the sorting cards.
- Sort the cards into categories.
- Discuss with your partner how you sorted your cards.
- Store cards & sorting paper in baggie.

DAY 2:

- Re-sort your cards.
- Discuss with your partner how you sorted your cards.
- Glue sorting paper and cards inside math notebook.
- Explain how you sorted your cards in your math notebook.
