# January Math Centers for 1st & 2nd Grade

Blog Posts

Written by: Katie Palmer

It's time to talk math centers for January!  Winter has officially arrived.  Up here in Minnesota the snow is piling up, the temperatures are below freezing, and the snow sports are in full force.  I use these winter themed math centers as a way of practicing skills that have already been taught to my students.  We use math centers after the whole group lesson.  They are a great way to reinforce the math concepts in an engaging way.  Let's take a closer look at these winter centers perfect for practicing math skills in 1st and 2nd grade.

All of the math centers are available in full color (as pictured below) or in black and white to meet your printing needs.  Each center comes with a direction sheet and recording sheet.  The recording sheets are great for accountability and for the teacher to check for understanding when they can't be at that center.  All center recording sheets include an answer key for quick and easy correcting as well.

The math skills that are covered in these center activities include:

## Place Value
