$100 to spend

I have a $100 purchase order to a place like Walmart, Target, etc. to spend on non-consumable stuff for my classroom. I already have 2 digital cameras. What is something that would help you in the classroom around this price?

I don't know what grade/subject you teach, but here are some ideas:
  • "all purpose" board games like Scrabble, Yahtzee, chess/checkers, Bananagrams
  • good electric pencil sharpener
  • headphones/earbuds
  • recess equipment- balls, jumprope, cheapo cornhole game
  • puppets/stuffed animals for story time/LA workstations
  • digital recorders for read alongs
  • shelving/storage/baskets

Laminator?

I have a small 3M laminator that I bought at Target. It's been a huge help in the classroom!

Some other ideas:
-acoustic music CDs (you can pick them up for around 10 bucks at Target). Great background music during writer's workshop sessions

-Multiple sets of dominoes are always fun-a great way to sharpen addition skills (you keep score by adding on)

-sets of dice or playing cards (addition/multiplication games)

-plastic baskets for books (mine are falling apart)

-jigsaw puzzles

(Bet I've spent your $100!)
