During my family vacation, I hit some resale stores and some yard sales - and came back home with a LOT more than I left home with! Some stuff is just stuff for my family, like luggage, clothes, dishes, etc. But, most of what I found is for school! So, I thought I'd share some of my awesome school finds with you all!
This is a kaleidoscope that can be changed according to themes, seasons, etc.! I was so excited to find it! I have not looked at it very closely yet, but it looks like you can fill the end with small objects as well as change out the outside of the scope. I thought this would be great for a seasonal basket or table - which I'd like to incorporate into my classroom this coming school year!
Ok, this may not seem so awesome, but for me it is! Every year I do a unit on the 5 senses and this is the book I like to read when we talk about the sense of sight. But, I did not have the book and always found myself looking for it at the library at the very last minute. Now, I have it!
I found this book about the human body. But, I did not buy it for the book, I bought it for the inserts on the inside of the book of the human skeleton and the human organ systems - with all parts labeled.
These are just old calendars I found - I decided to start collecting them so that I can use them for photographs of different subjects, etc. in my classroom.
This is just a Children's Picture Atlas. I thought I could use it when we do geography lessons.
I thought this would make a good work for the beginning of the school year.
These are small fabric flowers that I thought could either be used for art, practical life, or even counting.
Anyone remember this from school? I sure do! Every math teacher I had, had one of these for drawing different size circles & angles on the chalkboard. I am always trying to find the right size circular container, etc. to trace to get the size circle that I need - now I can just use this to make any size circle that I want!
Well, that's it for today! I will post more of my school finds in the next couple days or so.
