In our 2nd grade classrooms we would like to have students have their own Reading and Math Toolkit to use. In reading informational texts are becoming more and more challenging for students. To make reading more engaging I would like to introduce a Reading Toolkit. Students will have access to highlighters (to highlight important words or sentences), pencils (for writing), magnifying glasses (to search for text clues), and sticky notes(to write down an idea). This will encourage delving into those hard to read stories that students want to give up on. For Math I would like the students to have access to charts and manipulatives to use for specific the math strategy that we are learning. We hope these toolkits lead students to have a successful year in math and reading.
