 ETA hand2mind VersaTiles Science Starter Kit


I was first introduced to VersaTiles several years ago when one of our math teachers used them for after school math tutoring. I always thought that they were used only for math, but I recently discovered that they also have resources for science, readiness, and reading/language arts!

VersaTiles takes worksheets to he next level by requiring students to place number tiles on a corresponding letter that matches their answer. When all of the tiles have been placed, the students closes the answer case, flips it, and opens it back up. If the pattern matches the one at the bottom of the worksheet, the students has successfully answered all of the questions correctly. If the pattern does not match, the students can easily find their mistakes and make corrections.

I chose the Science Starter Kit because I have a hard time fitting in extra science activities. All of the workbooks have activities that fit perfectly with our scope and sequence.  My students have done activities relating to weather, the moon, and plants.  They are great for independent work or small groups.
The Science Starter Kit include a Teacher Resource Guide, 2 Science Process Skills,  Earth Science, Physical Science , and Life Science books. It also includes one answer case.

Students can work independently once they learn how to use VersaTiles. 

VersaTiles are engaging and challenging.
Students can self-check their work and make corrections. 
And now for the giveaway...
