I love a bargain...haha....who doesn't? I was looking at all of the wonderful products offered at Tpt and I was struck by how far your money can go. There are a lot of lessons and activities offered for 5 dollars and less. I've asked my fellow teacher authors to link up products that fit that description to give you a nice overview of the materials. So, kick off your shoes, get comfortable with a nice snack, and see all of the ways you can save money as you get some great activities for your students.
I love games! From Angry Birds to Chuzzle, I just love to play. When I turned 65 I threw a party at Dave and Busters and after dinner we played for hours in the back room with all of the video games. That being said, I think games are a wonderful way to teach. Many of the teacher authors on TpT agree with that statement. You can find so many clever and original games that address the skills or information you want to teach. Take some time to browse the collection of great ideas linked below. You'll be sure to find some wonderful games to engage and challenge your students.
