Get Inspired ~ Math Centers

Since this week's Clutter-Free Classroom Project Challenge has you organizing your math materials, I wanted to inspire you with some math center eye candy. The following was originally posted as part of last summer's Setting Up Your Classroom Series.


This post is part of my Setting Up Your Classroom Series.

I've been working on putting together some visuals on how my math materials are sent up and how I run math workshop to include with this post on storing math materials, but have come to realize it really is a post all it's own. So I'm going to post these great ideas for you now and will come back with the details from my own classroom and additional tips and ideas soon.

Mrs. Bond has won me over with her symmetrical math storage.

This homeschooling mom stores her sensory and math materials in clear jars. I think this is a great idea because it's organized, easy to see and jars are free and recycled. However, I would be hesitant to use them in the classroom if they are glass. Just a head's up.

Can you tell I heart Mrs. Rojas? This is a project she recently created and blogged about. And if you look carefully up on top you'll spot that adorable pen holder that I mentioned yesterday.

Mrs. Freshwater uses drawers to sort/store her math materials.

Kristen's math games are a must see. The two links under her picture are chock full of info.
