Organizing Math Stations

Do you use math stations in your room? I've always used them to some extent, but this year I got the kids started with them the first week of school and we have pretty much had station time daily. It's been a great way to differentiate math practice for them, but hard for me to keep up with providing meaningful activities. A couple months ago I finally found a method of keeping everything organized and at hand, but as you can see it's not pretty!


Every year as the end of the school year approaches I get the cleaning/organizing bug. I love coming back to work in August with everything neat and ready to go. First I have to purge and reorganize the whole filing cabinet, then I turn my attention to other areas of the classroom. This year it's definitely the storage of materials. Here's what my new system of math station organization will look like.


The labels on my bins are from the "Wild About" series I've been creating to fit the theme of my room. For your own free copy of the Wild About Math labels click here.



I'll be blogging later about how those envelopes fit into the system!

Question: How do you organize your materials?

  4. Cute labels! I like to think I'm very organized. Since I have downloaded a ton from TpT this year, I think I'll need to establish a better way to keep all these games organized.
