This post mysteriously disappeared so I will write it again. Hmmm...
I found some fun stuff at the SDE conference last week. I got these cool "teacher toys" from Helps 4 Teachers. I love this alligator for teaching greater than/less than. It actually goes with a book from the same company. I am excited to use him with "Mr. Alligator" by Jack Hartmann.
*Just to impress you with my photography skills - my right hand was in the puppet, my left was holding my phone, and I pressed the button with my nose!
I found these awesome spelling sticks! The letters are burned into them so they won't smear or wear off. I think she must have had the holders made just for the sticks. They are pretty cool. I bought 4 and am excited to use them for word work.
Last but not least, I found these great dice with THREE small dice inside. I have TONS of dice (even dice-in-dice), but I didn't have any of these guys. There are SO many fun options with them - ordering numbers, adding three numbers, place value...I have big plans for these little guys!
Now I just need to find a place to put all of these treasures in my room. If you saw my last blog post, you understand the problem. YIKES! So much to do and only ONE week left!!! Better get busy!
