For Christmas one of my aunts gave everyone in the family an empty tool kit to use as we see fit. Each one of us sat in awe, imagine the possibilities of exactly how we'd use ours. Mr. Lipstick organized our house hold tools last night. My mom, the second grade teacher, immediately started planning how to use hers for a reading center. I decided to use mine as my ultimate teaching tool-kit.
I do guided reading in 3 different classes so I use to schlep a bag to each room, digging inside it for the specific materials I need. Now I have this:
Perfect storage for game pieces, reading strategy reminder charts, and sticky notes, all easy to see through the mesh.
