I am really enjoying reading Debbie Diller's Math Work Stations.
Thanks to DeeDee Willis for getting this book group organized!
As I was reading chapter 4, I was envisioning what these bins might look like. If the math talk cards were a simple talking bubble with no label, would they always get put away with the correct activity? How would I, when setting up the bins, remember all materials that need to end up there? SO, being the Type A personality I am, I made these from the activities mentioned in the book and thought I would share them with you all.
Beginning Number Concepts
I resisted putting directions because K/1 can't read them anyway but it seems like having the materials helps jog my memory which game it is. I would still make the I Can list WITH the students as suggested by Debbie.
I was thinking maybe if I make more I should add the standard in a small font to keep easily organized? Or maybe just copy them on different colored cardstock.
I'd love to hear your feedback. Do you think these are useful or do you have other organization ideas?
