Kits for Individual Students

Rick Ludeman, Chief Executive Officer
To minimize the sharing of physical items in the classroom, and to facilitate hands-on learning opportunities at home, we have created two options for providing students in Bridges schools and districts with their own materials kit: 
    • Student Kits: Each boxed kit provides the key manipulatives and other components needed by one student. 
    • Completer Kits: Additional quantities of selected items that, when combined with existing Bridges classroom kits, provide enough materials to create 30 individual student kits.

Note that these options are not mutually exclusive. Some schools and districts may choose to implement both, enabling students to have individual kits at school and at home. 

In developing these kits, we sought to balance utility and cost. Therefore, the materials included will support most, but not all, sessions. We also substituted cardstock for plastic materials when feasible.

You may place an order online by selecting the relevant grade level below or contact our customer service team.

To facilitate your decision-making and planning, we have created Master Materials Lists, which feature information regarding alternatives to purchasing additional materials, e.g., blackline masters, digital resources, and free apps. Details by grade level are available on the Bridges Educator Site (login required).  

Please note, the Master Materials Lists also contain links to Digital Work Places, a selected subset of the Digital Display Materials that can be shared directly with students and are appropriate for use beyond the classroom. You’ll find these links labeled as “Public” in the column for Digital Display Materials.
