Spiral Review with Math Centers

Math centers are the perfect way for your learners to practice math skills they are learning. Planning a spiral review with math centers throughout the school year will help your learners master these skills.

Spiral Review

Learning new skills can be fun and challenging at the same time. Remembering math skills that were taught days, weeks or months before can be impossible.

This is where spiral reviews come in. They allow learners to review what they have learned so that it doesn’t disappear. But how does spiral review work in the classroom?

Guided Math Groups

Guided math groups are not a new concept for many teachers. Using guided lessons in both literacy and math can help get more bang for your instruction buck!

This is a great time to incorporate a spiral review with math centers in your math block. Don’t fret, you won’t need to go planning a whole new lesson for each guided group. Grab an old math lesson or a math center to use together.

Math Centers

It is important to remember that math centers should be on your learners independent level. We don’t want to send students to engaging games and activities that set them up for failure. If a skill is particularly challenging for learners then hold off on putting that activity in centers.

Or if it has been a while since your learners have practiced a particular skill. Then incorporate it into your guided reading groups for a spiral review.
