# More Math Mini Office Ideas: Great for Guided Math Groups and Personal Reference

Here are some more ideas for math mini-offices. I would only put the reference tools that the individual student needs. I would change the mini offices according to the unit of study. What do you think?

Resource 1 (great detailed example)

Resource 2 (referred me to resource 1 actually)

Resource 3 (a plethora of good stuff)

Resource 4 (abcteach has several mini-office resources but this one is free! we love free!)

Resource 5 (a few math items)

Happy Mathing,

Hi Dr. Nicki,

I am assuming that the teacher actually creates the math mini office? I think there could be some “utools which could be included in every mimi office, like the hundreds chart, money pictures and values, etc. The teacher could scaffold the use of the tool and add to the mini office as each unit is taught. I’m wondering how to maximize thi use of this neat tool, while assuring teachre that it could be done efficientl. I love the idea.

I would have the students build it throughout the year. Then, I would have them use it whenever they needed it, during center time and guided math time.

Hi Dr. Nicki,

I am assuming that the teacher creates the mini math offices?? If that’s the case, then I think there could be some “universal” tools included in every mini office ( like the hundreds chart, a clock, pictures and values of coins, etc) The teacher could then add more resources for the student as each unit is taught. Each math mini office becomes individualized for each student. Mini math offices for each unit would be the ideal situation. Teachers would have to buy into the idea first. I love it – it’s a win-win for the student and teacher.
