In math class, there are times when certain manipulatives are needed. Managing these manipulatives can become very time consuming. At our BIL You Tube Channel, there is a video clip that explains how teachers put together tubs of the most often needed items like scissors, calculators, protractors, colored pencils, etc… By setting up these tub at the beginning of the year, the students can be instructed to pick up their group’s tub as they enter the classroom. This alleviates the teacher having to hand out and then collect these items every class period. Additionally, since these tubs are used by a group of 3 to 4, not every student needs to purchase every item at the start of the school year.
