Brainy Bins are boxes, bins, crates or baskets filled with inquiry based activities for students who finish early. Everything you need in this pack is EDITABLE! So often I have students that work far ahead of the rest of the class. Sure, they can go read a book or follow an anchor chart of activities, but honestly, It was more work for me to figure out what I wanted them to do. I have to focus my time on the students that are still working. Thus, the idea for Brainy Bins was born.
My hope is not to create another pack of worksheets for you to print out last minute.
My goal is that you will be able to put together several math bins that will:
*Be easy to maintain
*Last a long time
*Cover topics you don’t always get to cover
*Enrich content taught in the curriculum
Included in this pack are:
*How to: explains step by step on how to put together your Brainy Bins
*Bin Management: help to manage the Brainy Bins in our classroom
*Parent donation letter: EDITABLE
*Shopping lists (color and black and white: EDITABLE)
*Bin Labels (Full Color: EDITABLE)
