Alien Themed Math Stations and a Time Station Freebie!

I found this Alien clip art and knew I had to use it for something. I thought about doing lit stations but just could not get my brain to focus on literacy so math it is! The pack has lots of stations. Patterns, greater than less than, counting by tens and fives, adding tens, odds and evens and more!

This station the students draw a card and write it in the center box. Then they write the numbers that come before and after.

Students draw two cards and create fact families with them. I realize in this picture an equation line is missing but that has been fixed!
 Students draw the first number and write it in the box and then the second number. Then they decide what goes in the middle box < or >.
 The student draws two numbers and answers the equations. There are also subtraction cards.
 Students can write in the answer or you can make a pile of cards with numbers for the equations and a pile to use for the answers.
 Odd and Even sorting
 These cards are used for creating patterns. Students can create their own pattern or there is a list of patterns for them to make.

This is a great math stations pack. You can find it for sale at our TPT store HERE!
We hope you will love this also. And the best part is the whole pack all 44 pages is only $4!

I also used it to make a silly emergent reader, The Alien. You can download the book Here!

I can't get enough of these little aliens so I created another freebie to go with them this week. This one is a time station. Students will match the alien with the space ship that has the matching time on it. If you love these little guys as much as I do check out our alien math pack HERE!
