Math Games Library, Part I

  1. Mrs. Magee says:

    The labels are amazing and will work perfectly with the Debbie Diller Math Work Stations I will be setting up in my room! Thanks for sharing!

  2. PenguinPhan says:

    Thanks for sharing. We just adopted Everyday Math this year and I am a little overwhelmed with organizing all the materials. Where did you get the baskets to store the games in?

  3. Mrs. Lutton says:

    Thanks! How cool!! I love the baskets. Where did you get them? Are these games in the EDM? You are so kind to share all these things.


    Thoughts of a Third Grade Teacher

  4. Hey PenguinPhan (love the name!) and Mrs. Lutton…the baskets were from the Dollar Tree from a couple of years ago.

  5. PenguinPhan says:

    What did you do for the games that do not have a mat/board? (i.e. the Top-It games)

  6. PenguinPhan, I only made games for those that have a board in the reproducible book…otherwise the kids know where the cards/manipulatives are in this area to play the games without a board.

    I love how you organized this! I think this will be my big summer project. Thanks! Question: Where do you find Math Clipart? I've been looking for place value clip art and such and I have had no luck. Any ideas?

  8. Brenda says:

    Ditto!! This is going to be my big summer project as well! This was our first year with EDM, so I'm definitely ready to move to a more organized system!

  9. I love, love this! You are truly the queen of organization 🙂 I was waiting to find out what grade I would be teaching next year to begin this project. Our district uses Go Math, but I found an activity book similar to the games in EDM, so I think this will work 🙂 I was wondering, did you glue the copies of the games onto construction paper and then laminate them? It all looks so perfectly neat with the color matching baskets. I just bought some hot pink and hot green ones at the dollar store and want to find matching paper. Also, are the games folded in half or are they on regular sized paper? Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you sooo much!

    p.s. I am also working on implementing the library system you have. Busy busy summer ahead of me 🙂

    Hi Polka Dot! Thank you so much! Believe me, I am not as organized as I'd like to be (especially right now!). The games are glued to colored paper (just regular printer paper). They are on half sheets because that is how many of the games come in EDM–plus it works well for fitting in the baskets! Please let me know if you need more info, I'd be happy to help 🙂

  11. Thank you so much for your help! 🙂 I wish the games for Go Math were as fun as EDM. Hopefully once the project is done I can send you a picture! 🙂

    This is so cool! I'm such a visual so the pictures are wonderful. I'm struggling downloading your files. It says -unable to open this internet site. Hmmm. Thank you again for sharing. I can't wait to get started on this project. 🙂

    I am in awe of this. You are my inspiration! I am definitely tackling this during the summer. Our math curriculum has great games/centers that come with it, but just lacks the organization. Thank you for sharing this!

    Thank you for posting and sharing! So helpful. I hope I can get some of this word done in the future…

    Is EDM a curriculum? or is it something I can use in my classroom by itself? Where would you find it? THanks!!

  16. Ginger Snaps says:

    Yeah, I 'm wondering too are all the games from Every Day Math? If so, are you able to share how to play each one?

  17. Kristen says:

    Hey Ginger Snaps, the games come as reproducibles with the curriculum…I just ran them off and organized them.

  18. krissyb says:

    I have just started using Everyday Math and I love how you organized everything. I would love to love at your game labels, but for some reason I'm unable to access them. Could you help me?

  19. Rebecca says:

    Oh my gosh!!! Girl, how I wish you could help me organize my math tubs to look like this!! Wow!! This is wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing the photos!

    I love your site! Everything seems to be soo helpful and set up so cutie….

    I do have a question on the math game tubs. Can you please give or show some examples of the math different type of math games you have in there… My mind is at a lost…

  21. Jilly-bean says:

    First of you all, you are one amazing lady and teacher!! I can't believe all of your work. I was wondering if you could explain where you ordered "everyday math" from. I am from Canada and get a lot of different result when searching for it. I teach a multi-level class of grade 4-5 (with many other levels in it) and would love to get a hand on those math games..would you be able to help me out?

    • Kristen says:

      Hello and thanks so much!! Everyday Math is a series here in the US and my district adopted it a few years back. The games come in the teacher resource book…I'm not sure if it can be purchased or not. I'm sorry, I wish I could be of more help!

  22. Mrs. Castro says:

    I'm bummed out I'm teaching Everyday Math in Spanish! If I were teaching in English I would totally use these signs! I have the same shelves though, so at least I can organize my things the same way. 🙂

    Love love love your organization of these everyday math supplies. Please tell me where you purchased these baskets!


    • Kristen says:

      Hi Brie! They are older ones from the Dollar Tree, years back. I don't think they have the exact ones, but I do see various bright ones there. Thank you for reading my blog 🙂

    I would like to possibly find a book/teacher's manual for everyday math. I think my students could REALLY benefit from it, especially since it has different levels. Is there anyway you can tell me the official title of your book or maybe the ISBN number so I may look for it online? Thanks so much!
    Love your site! It helps me so much!!
