Uh, it's only July... it is not the season yet. But alas... all the major stores have started stocking for BTS already.
The Dollar Tree has really upped its game this back to school season. If you haven't yet visited in recent weeks, you need to go. Drop everything. Go now.
Being a special education teacher, I am always looking for work tasks for students to complete. I figured these magnets would be a great work task for them to complete at the front white board.
Students will then grab this iPad and work to not only recreate the beginning of the sequence, but also finish it. The magnets aren't too small or too large, so they are perfect for small hands.
PS. Did I mention those shapes are dry erase too? You could easily write numbers or letters on them and have students sequence that way too!
You get two in a pack for $1. I think I bought 10 packs.
I have so many ideas on how to use these:
• visual schedules
• classroom jobs
• review Jeopardy
• indoor recess games (like tic-tac-toe)
• send 1 home with students on the first day and have parents use it as a calendar reminder system, frequently sending home reminders in daily folders
• work tasks
...and so much more!
As you can tell, I'm pretty pumped about these. So much so that I created a blank set of cards that perfectly fit inside of the clear magnetic pockets. Click the link below to grab them.
You can see other ideas I am going to try implementing in work task bins this school year on my Work Task / Bin Pinterest board:
