Show and Tell #65

Where has our vacation gone?  The next time we host Show and Tell it will be September!  My kids will be busy back in their classrooms, as I bet many of yours will be as well.  It is fun to look back at this feature though and see all the great learning that has been going on during the summer months!

To help you as you prepare for school, we wanted to share our Show & Tell from Brad's Deals:.

With school's start just around the corner, teachers and students alike are working to get ready with adequate tools and supplies. It is not a well known fact, but it's not uncommon for teachers to spend more than $450 of their own money for the schools supplies necessary for their classrooms each year. Check out this articel from CNN all about it: Class is in Session! Obviously this is more than just the cost of extra No. 2 pencils, and it is no small amount. In efforts to help minimize that spending by America's educators, BradsDeals has compiled a list of stores offering teacher discounts that they shared with us, and we are now proud to share with you. BradsDeals has included savings from many popular office supply stores, clothing stores, book stores, and more. Take a minute and check out the article with all 83 discounts on their site here: Teacher Discounts by BradsDeals. Now go save yourself some money while you get prepared for the new year!

Now, here are some great teaching tips from last week's collection of links!

Creating My Way to Success shared a tutorial for putting together a pocket chart to teach times tables.

Teach Beside Me is also working on math with these interactive math sticks.

The Preschool Experiment gives us suggestions for teaching children about the letters that make more than one sound.

It's your turn!
