Free reading and math teaching tools

This is not a sponsored post. I was not compensated in any way

As a daughter of a school teacher, I am used to stopping as I come to education sites and pay attention to products I am emailed about that I send to my Mom as recommendations. My Mom had taught 3rd/4th grade for years and this year they redrew district boundaries and she took a second grade class at a school closer to her home. So, we have been on the hunt for second grade level decor for the classroom and learning tips. I was alerted by a PR company I have worked with about a site called Astute Hoot and sent this to my Mom!
Astute Hoot has teaching tools all themed around owl characters for reading and math strategies. It is founded in part by a second grade teacher for teachers. This was perfect for my Mom heading into the lower grade level for the first time. A few of the tools are free and can be used by the teachers and by students to take one common theme and apply it to different math levels and reading and writing strategies. These are great tools for the homeschool families as well!

The video below gives you the idea of how engaged the kids get using these tools with teacher!

There are products that are as low as $5 or even free and you will find many useful learning tools for not only reading and math, but also test prep, special education, behavior and holiday bundles.
