Product Description

As a new teacher, I taught K-2 and I had difficulty managing the math materials for centers.  I developed these posters and we would chant the directions as a class.  I emphasized that the centers were for math work and if I saw someone ignoring these directions, I would remind the student of the rule and remove him or her from that center as appropriate.

Not in the air– this meant they couldn’t throw, toss, flip or use any other motion that would cause a math material to fly through the air.

Not in your mouth– We talked about spreading germs and not getting one another sick.

Not in your pocket– Sometimes this action was deliberate.  More often it was done thoughtlessly.  We talked about how if people put the math materials in their pockets and took them home we wouldn’t have any to work with.  If someone did find one that they accidently put in a pocket, they were encouraged to put it back without consequence.

Take one at a time.  Don’t hog the materials.  They are for everyone to use.  As a teacher, I made sure that there was a limit to the students who could be at one station.

Put them away.  Clear plastic tubs make it easy to see which objects get put away.  The students were responsible for putting away a center or a center might be put up for a time.

Posting these five posters and reviewing the chant before each math centers time helped maintain order in my classroom.  I hope they help yours.
