I am linking up with my sweet friend, Marsha at A Differentiated Kindergarten to share a little about my math stations.
Here is a quick picture to show you how I have organized my math stations in the past:
The cart was actually re-purposed from holding an overhead projector (yes, I not only had one…but I still do in storage)…the boxes are cheapos from Dollar Store that are made to sit on top of each other- (but they wouldn’t have to)… the numbers are those peel and stick bulletin board letter/numbers-
easy, enough =)
I like it because I can change the tubs out easily…it rolls around in case I need to move it for convenience and they are easy to put up and take off for the kids. I have things like geo boards, dominoes, and unifix cubes in them…dice games and recording sheets…pattern blocks, shapes and pattern pages. Fact family activities were the last item I added. Each pair of kids gets a new number bin each week…I haven’t been able to do math stations every day, regular like I should…so the kids only have that bin maybe 2-3 times that week…and then they go to the next number the following week. (if that makes sense =)
Here are some of the packs I have created for my math stations!

My kids LOVE GeoBoards and having these recording and task cards give them a purpose.
Perfect for the beginning of the year nonsense word fluency is this station:

I also have packs for Sight Words, first and second grade versions!
