Help students take ownership of their learning with math toolboxes! Math toolboxes are little toolkits filled with reference materials for students to use as they complete their work. They are perfect for encouraging independent learning or sending home with students who need some extra support at home.

This resource includes 30 reference guides covering standards from kindergarten through 6th grade math. Simply choose which reference materials you wish to include and use only those pages. If you change grade levels or teach multiple grades, you won't need to purchase a new product - everything you need is already right here!

Designed for the IRIS USA 5x7 or 4x6 photo boxes, but can be stored elsewhere. Simply print, laminate, and cut out the materials you need, throw them in your toolbox, and you're ready to go! Please read instructions before using so you know how to prep them correctly.
