This week, I am going to share with you some of the awesome CHEAP finds I have gathered over the years from my local $2 shops, reject shops, Daiso and one of my favourite stores.... IKEA!
Teacher Tip: Dollar Dazzlers!
I don't know about you, but when I trawl through the above stores, I am often looking for things that I can use in the classroom. Most of the time however, I just can't think of ways that the items on the shelves in front of me can be used. These are some items that I did happen to find a use for...
MAGNETIC SPICE HOLDERS
I love Ikea! I can spend hours there! A few years ago, I bought these spice holders. I use them to store my clips and pins in them.
The greatest thing is, they are MAGNETIC!
I store them up high on my whiteboard :)
$2 shops/ Reject Shops/ Cheap Stores
I picked up these fly swats a few years back and the kids just LOVE them! We use them for playing games like 'Tic Tac Toe' and 'Sight Word Swat'. WARNING: I have rules when using these as sometimes the children can be a bit rough with them.
I recently caught up with some beautiful Blogger friends from Melbourne - I still have to blog about this so I'm not going to post the pics up just yet....
Anyways, whilst we were chatting and sharing (as we do) Jemima from Jem's Bright Buttons, showed me one of her recent purchases. It was this fantastic MAGNETIC container! Well, I just HAD to have it, so I too, went to Daiso to grab it. The kids love it as well :)
I hope you have grabbed yourself some ideas today that you can also use in your classroom. Make sure you go back to the Linky to read the other Aussie Teacher Tips! There are some great ones this week!
