My challenge for you is to share your best dollar store classroom creation or find. Let us know how you plan to use it in the classroom. Please share any other tips too.
Then add your link to the bottom of this post and be sure to link back to this post too. I've got room for 100 Sweet and Simple Dollar Store education creations below. (Be sure that you are Pinterest friendly. We'll want to pin these ideas and even feature some favorites here.)
Here's mine: Rainbow Craft Stick Tally Marks
Since they will only have five of each color, it will be easy to create like sets. This is a natural way to then work with counting by fives. Then, of course, the kiddos can work with ordering the colors of a rainbow.
And that's a sweet and simple way to use a dollar store find to help teach the kiddos.
