Math Center Set-Up
I have listed some additional math manipulatives in the resource section below.
Each tub in the math center is open on top and has a picture of the materials on the end with a matching picture on the shelf.
Using open tubs and picture labels will facilitate a quick and easy clean-up.
The Math Center Sign provides a picture of what a clean center looks like in case the students need a reminder.
