Clip to ScrapBook #1

I just received a grant for $500 to spend on my classroom. I think I have enough books and basic supplies, so I'm not sure what to get. I have to use the vendors on the group's website. The most interesting are reallygoodstuff and one where I can get technology. I was thinking of a 4th kindle fire. Anyone have any good ideas for me? TIA!

Check out Eggspert at RGS. I have the older version that is not wireless. You can have up to six teams and use it to review. It is one way you could use Unseen's task cards.

Do you have a document camea? I have one for the first time, and I LOVE it. If I ever have to move somewhere without one, it's the first thing I'm going to get even if I have to buy it myself.

What fun! They have that new kindle fire specifically for kids that's pretty cheap - you could actually get two of them and still have some left over. Or maybe some fun hands-on science materials? Or some good art supplies?

Do you have math manipulatives? I have none! Some of the first and second grade teachers at our school made math tool boxes for each of their kids. Each kid as their own tool box (plastic container) with a variety of math manipulatives. They choose how/when to use the manipulatives and and which ones. It's a great way to use the mathematical practice standard, use tools appropriately/strategically. You could use your money for the bins and more math manipulatives.

I know our school lacks A TON of science lab materials, so that would be a good purchase for me!

watercolor sets and tempura paint and different size brushes. sharpie pens to outline before they paint. some how to do children's art if you don't have already. Oh yes, and oil pastel chalks and markers and colored pencils.

OOO and get a musical play from Big Bad Wolf website. Great stuff and easy to do.

Here's what I got!

After perusing all the available vendors I was permitted to use, I got:

A kindle fire dh and case
Two sets of fiction/nonfiction pairs of books
A set of resource posters for my room
A full body stretchy and that was in the special needs section of one of the websites. I have a couple of explosive kids that need this.
sticky clips to hold anchor charts on my concrete walls

I think that's it! That was so much fun! And now I have 4 kindles for my room, how lucky am I?

Thanks for all your suggestions!
