This product includes math problem solving strategy posters as well as everything you need to create coordinating math toolboxes for students to use in small group or independently in math stations and any where else they may be working on their math problem solving skills.
The toolbox kit was designed to be used with the popular 4x6 photo boxes. Toolbox items included are:
- Mini page featuring all strategy posters
- Ten Frame card for numbers up to 10
- Ten Frame card for numbers up to 20
- Number bond card
- Number path card for numbers up to 10
- Number path card for numbers up to 20
- Draw a picture card with suggested circle for picture
- Draw a picture card plain with no circle suggestion
The cards and labels are all editable. When you open this PowerPoint product, you will be able to click on the # symbols on each slide to include the numbers, names, table number, groups, etc. that work best in your classroom. I have 2 sets that are in stations for students to use numbered one way and a set I keep at my table for guided math groups that include a number with my initial, also in a different color text so both my students and I know where each piece of each toolbox goes should something be misplaced. (Tip- I also number the expo markers I put in each box!) The labels also come in options for dots, stripes, and solid color borders so you can choose based on what fits your classroom best!
This is likely to be a growing/evolving bundle and if you have ideas or suggestions to help improve this product, I'd love to hear them!
Items that I include in my toolboxes are a dry erase marker, a small eraser, and math manipulatives. (I use mini erasers in mine so I can change them out seasonally...and justify the purchase of seasonal mini erasers! Ha!)
