I prefer to have information available for the kids… you know, at their fingertips! If the students are playing a math game, or sharing some map skills task cards at a center, they’ll need tools to calculate their sums or maps to perform their tasks.
I have a sample freebie that you can see in this image that includes some math, some reading, and some Science tools. The Math includes a color coded grid from 0 to 120. The reading includes a list of fiction and non fiction genres. The Science has a word bank of loads of science words. I’m hoping that sparks lots of conversations!
Come on over to Elementary Matters to download your freebie and see more of the Everything Tool Kit.
