Check the Dollar Store for Learning Supplies

Parents and teachers, check the Dollar Store (or equivalent) for learning supplies!  You can find many fun items for home, classroom, or playing school.

> Flash cards for all operations.  Sometimes you can even find Disney Princess cards!
> Workbooks—check the coloring books section. I have found fun Disney Princess reading comprehension, spelling, and writing workbooks.  There are usually workbooks for preschool to third grade.
> Posters, alphabet charts, and bulletin board decorations
> Incentive charts—use for school or to keep track of chores at home!
> Small marbles or pebbles: use these for “manipulatives” as teachers call them or “counters” to regular folk.  (Great for teaching little ones addition and subtraction.)

Happy bargain hunting!
