Chore and Homework chart! Easy to make with felt and sticky felt letters from the dollar store. Write chore and dollar amount on the clothespin and put in the "to do" then the kids can move them over to the "done" side upon completion. Homework doesn't get a dollar amount! Maybe a reward at the end of the week for doug all homework (ice cream, etc). Colorful, simple and useful!!!

Here is an idea for a fun classroom activity that you can also leave behind at your math centers afterwards. Just get some good quality paper plates, glue some coins onto them, and then write the total values onto the bottom of each plate. With my K4 kids, I would limit the combinations of coins.

A Pottery Barn Halloween Look at Dollar Store Prices Cake Stand -- If you're willing to use a little glue, you can create the same idea using plastic trays and goblets from -- you got it -- the dollar store. I even found glittery skulls! If you don’t like the idea of the goblets, grab a couple of glass candlesticks and use those instead. Just make sure everything is balanced as you start to glue. Horchow Price: $98 Dollar Store Price: $6 ($1 each for 3 trays, 2 goblets, and 1 glittery skull

two 9 cube bins from Target (one on each side of the workstation). Then a piece of plywood with some trim around the edge and sat it on top of the two cubbies with a brace in the middle.

i can do this.

Swiper swipes a few numbers from the hundred chart. Kids either find them and replace them or write the missing numbers. Fun free idea!
