In between playing with my kids in the pool and walking my dogs, I've been enjoying Debbie Diller's Math Work Stations book like so many other bloggers out there. I have changed rooms 6 times in the past 6 years. All the moving I've done has helped me "clean out" (in fact I'm sort of famous for throwing things away), but it also leads to "last minute stuffing" when you have to rush to move out and rush to move into a new space. So, my project for the next few weeks is going to be to reorganize my math cupboard and set up my math work stations. Remember I have not taught math in a few years, because of my "split" job. Between the graduate level math classes I took this year, this book and all the fabulous ideas teachers are sharing in the book discussion... I can't wait to get started!
Here are some story mats that I use with my students. You can click on the picture to download. The clipart is from scrappindoodles.com.
And... these are the numbers I am going to use on my math work station bins. The font is from Lettering Delights. Once again, you can click on the picture to download.
Hope these are helpful to someone (other than me)!
