  • 1. Sarah Frost Hunter August 2013 sarah.frosthunter@peelsb.com
  • 2. Mini Magnetic Whiteboards – used during Read Alouds & Think Alouds to identify Important Author Quotes, Connections & Big Ideas -$1 @ Canadian Superstore
  • 3. Mini Whiteboards – Could be used for Small Group Instruction, Morning Messages, Poetry Responses, Quick Writes, Prompting Questions - $1 @ Target
  • 4. Four Easels from IKEA (3 used & 1 new) – each group will have an easel where mini lessons in a variety of subjects can take place, as well, a variety of small group games can be played $19 New @ IKEA or check on www.kijiji.com
  • 5. Flip side of the easels have whiteboards where mini lessons in a variety of subjects can take place, small group instructions given to differentiate instruction for students
  • 6. Large Whiteboards – will be used for collaborative problem solving and recording of solutions and ideas; once shared with the whole group an iPad can be used to capture the thinking and saved for reflections – watch for “resale” of these boards at local Salvation Army, Goodwill, Value Village stores, sometimes these boards appear at garage sales too– prices will vary
  • 7. Photo Albums ready to be filled with pictures documenting the learning and saved as an audit trail of our learning together throughout the year; students will be encouraged to share reflections and write comments on the documentation – always a variety of photo albums available at garage sales and Goodwill stores
  • 8. Watch for interesting magnetic boards that can be used to display a visual schedule of the day or used in a centre for practicing retell of fiction and informational texts – lucky find on Peel’s Teacher “For Sale” site
  • 9. New Magnetic Whiteboard purchased for $7.99 at JYSK
  • 10. Plastic Magazine Holders used to store notebooks – another lucky find for “free” on Peel’s For Sale site
  • 11. Colourful Plastic Buckets to store mini note pads & student writing tools
  • 12. Using the Character Education books “How Full Is Your Bucket?” as a springboard into the new school year, plastic buckets will be used to store materials and each bucket will have a notepad so that anyone can “fill someone’s bucket” with a nice thought or compliment – all of this would be modeled for students – “teacher pen” will be in each bucket so that learning can be captured or commented on - also watch for sales on school supplies on www.kijiji.com
  • 13. More Whiteboards = Less Chart Paper Less Chart Paper = More $ for books!
  • 14. Be Thrifty & Watch for “Back to School Sales” – these notebooks were 10 cents each at Canadian Superstores – 60 notebooks for Reading, Writing & Math Journals = $6.00!!!
