Are you ready for spring? I know that I definitely am! Spring is a fun time in first grade. My students are really starting to understand tricky math concepts. Our 1st grade spring math centers are filled with engaging activities that challenge my students and provide a review of previous concepts taught.

1st Grade Spring Math Centers
Here are the math activities we have in our math centers for spring. In our centers, I like to add flower counters to these centers. If you have mini erasers, they work great as well!
The spring comparing numbers center gives my students a chance to review the symbols greater than, less than, and equal to.
Fact families are a great way to practice fact fluency with your students. We practice them all the time! In this spring math center, students match the nest families with the bird equations.
Balanced Equations can be a tricky concept for students to understand. Honeycomb equations are a way to practice matching equations to make them balanced. Do your students struggle with this?
Find, Tally, Graph & Solve Activities
Find, Tally, Graph, and Solve activities are always a favorite with my students. We have them in our match centers all year long.
Missing Number Squares
Missing Number Squares is an activity that reinforces the understanding of 10 less, 10 more, 1 less, and 1 more.
Rainy Day Measurement
Have you ever wondered how many raindrops long an item is? Probably not, but your students will still have fun with this nonstandard measurement center.
Spring Telling Time
Spring is the time that we learn how to tell time to the hour and half-hour in 1st grade. This telling time match requires students to match the digital time to the analog clock. On the recording sheet, they write the correct time of each clock.
These spring math activities should keep my students busy! If you are interested in any of these math centers, be sure you check them out below.
