What's inside these bins you ask? Looks like lots of food storage items!
Back at the end of school, I ventured through the $1 Spot at Target and saw these cute food storage containers. I was going to head to the food storage section for some anyways, but these were colored and Disney too - and a 4 pack for $1!! I used these containers to make individual math manipulative containers for each kiddo.
They are the perfect size to store foam counters...
My base ten blocks are stored and organized in Rubbermaid food storage containers.
I have about 6 of these boxes and each box has one hundreds flat and a lot of tens sticks on the left side which is larger. The smaller side houses ones blocks.
BUT, this year I think we might go digital with our base ten blocks! I came across the Number Pieces Basic iPad app recently and since I have a class set of iPads, I'm super excited to use this app once we get to place value concepts! But I'll keep these out for the kiddos to use for my kiddos that need to touch their manipulatives.
I store my unifix cubes in these green storage boxes from Dollar Tree. They used to be sorted by color and type (I had 2 different types), but you know 2nd graders - they couldn't stay that way forever!
I hope I've given you some organizational math tips that you can use in your classroom! Check out the other posts below for more back to school math tips to kick your year off right!
