## Let’s Take a Look at Some of the NO PREP Pages “In Action”…

## HOW DO I ORGANIZE THE UNITS?

I chose to store the math centers in Sterilite bins, because they don’t take up too much space. It is a tight fit, but I find that they work nicely for me. However, if you choose, you could store the centers in a larger container as well. Within the bin, each math center is stored in a gallon sized ziplock baggie.

I see that you have different colored pages for differentiated groups, which I like. Does it mention which ones should be printed in a different color to help us know?

Nancy Nunes says

I noticed that the First Grade Math bundle Unit 3 subtraction does not have the math standards broken down for the centers whereas the other units do. Was this sheet left out of the bundle or does it not exist? Thanks in advance! Nancy

Hi Nancy!

Oh my! I’m not sure how I let that one slip! I will update it with the grade level standards for the centers as soon as I get the chance!
