I am excited to be linking up with K's Classroom Kreations and Theresa's Teaching Tidbits for back to school math tips! Be sure to check back the first Monday of the month for new math tips. This month we are focusing on Back to School Ideas.
The most important math tip for back to school is to get organized. I love taking the time during the summer to organize my classroom because once the year starts
there is no time for organizing! You are in it to stay alive until May!
Here are some of my math organization tips...
I have the math manipulatives that I use the most organized on this shelf...
On top of the shelf are trays that match the colors of my tables. During a math unit I will organize the materials needed for activities in these trays. Each table has a captain that is in charge of getting what their table needs during each workshop time.
I have 2 of these file organizers that hold worksheets for each unit,
organized by subject of course.
The top of this book shelf is math books organized by subject.
These bins hold everyone that I need to teach each unit.
Everything is organized, laminated and ready to go.
I have already pulled some books to start the year in this bin,
but will continue to fill it and other math book bins during the school year.
Take some time to get organized and have a great mathematical year!
