Well now that I am about to start teaching (and through some great ideas on pinterest), I have found some great uses for them already which I will definitely implement into my classroom. One idea is to use cooking trays as magnetic boards.
This will be a great way for students to
- practice their spelling words
-spell/write a new or interesting word they see while reading
- to practice making sentences
- for practicing sums (with the numbers)
What other ideas could you use these for????
If you can't find these magnetic letters and numbers anywhere, don't fret- you can make your own (which I will also be doing). I found this amazing way to make your own letter magnets on Mama Jenn, just click on the link and you can make your own.
It will be interesting to see which other things that I have collected over the last few years come in handy throughout the year and which ones are never used....
