**Math Manipulatives**

My math manipulatives are all available to the students on one shelf. Each bin is clearly labeled and organized. Some manipulatives are loose, while others are stores in containers or ziplock bags.

**Counters**

I have my counters organized in containers. This makes it easier when students need to access them as a whole class as each child can be handed one container. Most containers contain 25 counters however I have a few organized with 100 counters, for students who need them with higher numbers. I have 30 containers of counters. 5 with 100 the rest with 25.

**Base 10 Blocks**

I store my Base 10 Blocks in zip lock bags in a big plastic storage tube (not on the shelving unit shown above). In each bag there are: 25- unit cubes 20- Rods 2-Hundreds Flats

DiceI have two dice in a snap lid container. Dice can be used for many activities, but often when left lose they get lost and take a long time to hand out. Having them in snap lid containers means they never "disappear" and make less noise when rolled! Students read the dice from the bottom of the container. |

White BoardsWhite boards are a great way for students to share their knowledge especially during mental math time. My students liked to call it "White Board Math" and would cheer when they got to use them. I use pompoms as erasers they are cheap, and the students loved to choose their own colours. White Boards can be expensive so I go to the local home hardware store and get Barker Board. If you can get some of the Barker Board that is chipped or damaged you can get it relatively cheap. Last year I paid 12 dollars for 40 boards (12x12 in size). It is very durable, and acts just like a white board! |

**Unifix Cubes**

I store my unifix cubes in the shelving unit shown above. However, I keep 10 bags organized with different amounts of unifix cubes. This makes it easier to grab and go for oral assessments or for when students work with a set amount of cubes.
