Here is a quick snapshot of what some of my math stations look and how I organize all the manipulatives inside their math bucket for ease of use and access.
Each math bucket has a station number that matches the number on the student rotation cards
Inside each bucket are the materials for each station
Here is a look at some of the center buckets and how the materials are organized as well as the center in use
For a more detailed explanation of each center you can go here
Number Pattern Blocks and Counting
Counting using a 100s chart, beans and clothespins.
Students then get a bag and find the numbers on their slips and color the number on the chart
Number Words and counting
Students spelled number words and practiced counting.
Egg counting and clothespin numbers
To elimate arguing over what get what I also try to color code the manipulatives that the kiddos get. Each students material will have a color dot.
