In the Math Lab we use cafeteria trays to prep for classes. All the materials students will need are on the tray, so switching between back to back classes, whether second grade or sixth is a breeze. Plastic cereal bowls hold smaller manipulatives or dice.
This tray features materials for a third grade modeling multiplication lesson. Students modeled groups using squares of paper for the group and cubes for the members in the groups. The lesson also featured a Wall Work activity where students found the image that matched their yellow card on the wall around the room.
