2nd grade is all about hands-on math and manipulatives.
My Bright Idea tip is a quick and easy manip management for your classroom.
One of my favorite sayings is:
"Clean up is easy...
If, everything has a home!!"
Give your manipulatives a home and label them!
No one has to ask you where it goes or where to find it.
Your students can pitch in and help OR get the tools they need independently.
FYI In my CHIPS drawer I created these little containers (from the Dollar Tree) with 2 different colored counters already inside. Easy and quick for 2 player activities.
