What are Anytime Tubs?
Hands-on math and literacy activities that can be used independently at any time during the day.
Why is hands on learning important?
"Kids learn through all their senses," says Ben Mardell, PhD, a researcher at Harvard University, "and they like to touch and manipulate things." But more than simply moving materials around, hands-on activities activate kids' brains. According to Cindy Middendorf, educational consultant and author of The Scholastic Differentiated Instruction Plan Book (Scholastic, 2009), between the ages of four and seven, the right side of the brain is developing and learning comes easily through visual and spatial activities.
When should I use them?
Anytime Tubs can be used anytime during the day. They can be used for Morning Work, Center Stations, or Fast Finishers. Optional writing templates are also included. SO MANY CHOICES and open-ended ways to use this resource.
