My students work in pairs to complete the math box tasks. I spend a good amount of time training them to take turns and how to coach each other when needed.
I'll try to post more specifics about how I use math boxes (math tubs, math stations, math centers . . . whatever you want to call them). But for the time being I'll share a box I am using this month. It is a number comparison sorting activity that uses the Whole Brain Teaching line of questioning YES or NO WAY. Which is basically like TRUE or FALSE.
The activity includes two sorting mats, sixteen number comparison cards, and a recording sheet that has a cut and glue option. You can use the recording sheets as a stand alone printable if you want. The clip art is from Scrappin Doodles.
