      Debbie Diller's books have been recommended before and she has a math station one geared for K-2. Hope that helps!

        Great suggestion Lauren!

        Also,the Terc math curriculum for K and 1st grades has some really good routines for setting up ongoing math stations. One thing I have found is that consistency is key. Introduce 1-2 stations at a time and then have a similar format for stations in the future. This way the kids know what to expect when working (both behaviorally as well as content). Another thing that has worked well for me is to group the kids for each station ahead of time (using magnet clips with their names displayed on the board) so that it is clear who is going to what station each day.
