I'm linking again with Teacher Without a Class for her fun Teacher $ Days. I scored again at the Doller Tree--love that store! The pieces are wooden, so they'll last a long time. PLUS they are magnetic! One thing you can do with them is to match the pieces to cards labels with the various shapes. Another thing is to get a second set for partner work. Player 1 builds a design or pattern w/o Player 2 watching. Then Player 2 uses his/her pieces to duplicate it. Store each set in its own container. Label the back of each piece with a white paint pen, 1 for set one, 2 for set 2. This will be a fun addition to a math center.
Now, here's what you do. Leave me a comment here. Go post a $1 Teacher deal on your blog and link it to A Teacher Without a Class. Then follow everyone's links to get some great bargain ideas.
