Number Bracelets

This is a great idea for math tubs from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits. She shows how to use beads to show the parts that make up a whole number.

Brain Chains

Check out this great video by Teacher Tipster to help children with place value. Brain Chains are a great idea for calendar time, but I was also thinking they would be fun to make for the 100th day of school.

Toothpicks and Number Sense

I think this idea from the blog First Grade Parade is great for beginning of the year math tubs. It is simple, but yet you can differentiate the activity easily by using larger numbers.
