Math centers are a big part of today’s classrooms. The days of whole group instruction are gone. Small groups, partner work and centers are here to stay. You might have some great math centers, but how is your math center organization?
Have you considered how easy your centers would run if they were more organized? When deciding how to organize your centers, you need to consider a few things.
When you think of math center organization, you need to keep it simple. Plastic bins for each activity are great for easy transportation around the room. Pictures are great for those beginner readers so you’re not interrupted during your small group instruction.
When creating an organizational system, you want your students to be dependent during center time. How many times do your students interrupt you because they don’t know what to do? Keeping your centers organized leads to a well managed classroom. And that leads to less distraction and more learning.
