Another pinner said "a MUST have for classroom library. It allows you yo use your smart phone and scan the bar code on your classroom books and then it inputs all of the info for you on a FREE data base. It allows you to let kids scan out the books and check out and check in them, separate them by reading levels and even put down their location in your class room. Did I mention it's FREE!?!?" If this works it is exactly what I've been looking for!
How is this for a Math Workstation... I bought these cardboard letters at the teacher store. There were 3 of each number. On one set I put stickers to help those who are not identifying numbers yet. The other sets I left blank. The kids will match clothespins to the corresponding number. Again, I love this station because it builds in a fine motor component which is so important early in the year.
