It's the first Wednesday of February, so that means I'm back to share a few of my favorite things!
My favorite things this month are my favorite materials to use during math.
These are my favorite things to use when teaching number sense. They are magnetic base ten blocks. Very useful for modeling on the board before sending students back to their seats to use their own base ten blocks. I've even set these up as a center and the students have used them on the board. Very motivating!
I love these foam place value dice. These are large enough to use with the whole class or a small group. Students can also use them independently. Since they are foam, they make no noise on desks! That's the best part! :)
One last thing I have to have in math is actually 3 things. I have to have personal white boards, markers, and erasers for each student. I use these almost every day. The eraser was just a cheap towel cut into smaller pieces.
What are your favorite math materials?
