Hey! Yolanda here from Oceans of First Grade Fun! I hope your summer has been fantastic!! I have two more weeks, then it’s back to the grind for me.
Okay it’s safe to say I LOVE teaching math!!!!! This summer I’ve been playing around with creating a math toolkit for my students. In the past it has been such a pain to pull out hundreds charts, or ten frames, not to mention making sure there were enough for everybody in my class! It drove me crazy! So, I came up with this toolkit. The plan is for the students to keep these in their desks, so they are ready to whip out when we need them. Take a look at what’s included below.
In terms of storage, I’m going to give my students a three pronged folder with pockets and a few Ziploc bags. They will keep the cards (skip counting and ten frames) inside the Ziploc bag (which I will probably three whole punch). They will keep the number of the day books, hundreds chart, number line and number scrolls inside the pockets. There you have it! A compact math toolkit with a minimum of muss and fuss…to quote Julia Sugarbaker!

I hope this is something you can use! Now I’m off to soak up the last lovely days of my summer vacation. Have a great week ahead!
