$600 to spend (Whoo hoo!) What to buy?

I never get money to spend! What do you find are the helpful things that you have in your classroom? If you had this money what would you buy? I was thinking of some sight word readers and some science materials. I might not be at this school next year (if my job interview goes well ) and if that is the case I want the next teacher to benefit from whatever I buy.

If I had $50 I would buy a horizontal drying rack from Lakeshore so I could dry art projects in one place instead of putting them on the floor and worrying that they will get stepped on (yes I have a clothes drying rack and clothespins, but wet things run when hung on it or pieces fall off before the glue dries).

I buy a lot of my educational items from Lake Shore. I'm lucky to have a store near me so I don't have to order through their catalog or online. They have a ton of games and activities in all areas of the curriculum. I just purchased $140.00 worth of stuff there today (complements of a past fundraiser). I bought a set of large colored trays, sentence strips, plant Bingo, a large bucket of pretend food, a word search game, unit block stamps and a bucket of unit blocks, library pockets, reward charts, and a math resource book. I love the store. They also have a laminating machine that is cheap to use. Check them out online.

Lakeshore is always my #1 place to buy materials. I also get some stuff from Discount School Supply. Especially art materials. But for curriculum materials you can't beat Lakeshore. I'm not sure if I am happy or sad that I don't live close to an actual store. I know I would enjoy shopping and browsing, but I'm sure I would spend way too much money there!

Don't forget to buy a library of great children's literature that you can use for many years!

I received a grant for my classroom. I purchased 10 TAG Readers, books, headphones and rechargeable batteries. The kids LOVE them. It is a favorite activity even when it is free time play time. The total for all that I bought was about $750.00 but you could do it for 600 you just would not get as many books as I did.

A listening center with books and cds would be a great purchase. I could also easily spend that money at Lakeshore. :O)
