Amazon.com at a reasonable price. I bought the empty capsules there as well.

I'm sure that there are lots of places to get them.

Well, duh! Now I feel stupid! Why didn't I think of that? Not feeling so great today so I'll blame it on that!

Mind Builders and Capsules

This is too funny because I just clicked on my order for these books!They are on sale, Math is $2.00 and the Lang Arts is $5.00. Of course, I spent $50 because I bought other things that were on sale and had a coupon for $10 off an order over $50.00.

Here is the link:

I got the capsules on eBay. I got red tops and blue tops, 25 each color in the 2" size for 12.85 (that includes shipping to get them by July 5th!) A lot of 25 capsules was 2.89 each, the shipping was $3.90 each!

No math and language arts for 5/6, just vocab and geography.

When I taught 6th in North Carolina I used these math problem solving decks. Perhaps you can use them instead of the mind builders.

Also, their Week by Week Essentials have some great math brain builders. I think 6th graders would find the 5th grade level challenging at the beginning of the year.

Yes, they do also have mind builders for these grades. I did a search for "mind" + grade 5, and they do have more options. However, these are NOT on sale (8.95) and the math and LA (I don't remember if it was language or reading--I don't teach either so I wasn't really paying attention), are only available in e-book format.

Evan-Moor sells Critical and Creative Thinking books in all grades through 5th then 6th is 6+.

They are a bit pricy at $20.00 each.

Thanks so much for the links to the NC resources. These are really great! Maybe I'll forgo the whole "mailbox" thing and use these instead.
