Today, I am super excited to share some incredible teaching resources I found through Oriental Trading. When I first started teaching , Oriental Trading was my go to source for everything prize related in my classroom. Now, I still use it for that... BUT it has SO MUCH MORE to offer teachers!
My eyes bulged out of my head when I saw these... I have made my own tens frames and laminated them. But they needed a face lift. I love how these dry erase math boards are DOUBLE SIDED! There is a 120 Chart on one side and ten frames and number lines on the other. These are going to be PERFECT for my kiddos during math time!
I have never had a complete class set of number lines for my students to use! These dry erase number lines will be perfect to use all year long. I am sure we will wear these out during skip counting, addition and subtraction strategies and so much more!
I also got a class set of sunglasses. I know that might sound strange BUT I give them to my kids every year with this little label. Sometime I give them at Back To School night at the beginning of the year. Other times, I wait and give it to them at the end of the year at Open House before they move to the next grade level. Either way, they are a HUGE hit!
Beach balls???? Yes, please! I love using these for math facts practice, sight word recognition, and even as a way to call on students. It is something different that keeps my kids engaged and ready to learn.
I love these pencils! They say "Happy Birthday, From Your Teacher!" I use them to create my birthday bloom display. You can grab this freebie by clicking HERE.
Finally, I grabbed a class set of white paper bags with handles. I use these several times during the school year for special events. I have the kids decorate them and then put all of the small items they collect inside them so they don't get lost.
One of the best new features at Oriental Trading is their classroom Wish List! That's right! All you have to do is go to their website, start shopping, and add the items you love to your wish list. Then, share that wish list with the families in your class and BAM all your wishes may be coming true! How awesome is that?
Now is the time to head on over to Oriental Trading! Get your classroom stocked up and ready for all those sweet kiddos headed your way!
