I bought several things for my class (see below) and I am going to have my class earn "dollars" (points) to be able to open them up. My idea is that I'll wrap the gifts and then put a price tag on the outside. The "price" is the amount of dollar/points the kids need to earn to open it up. This will be determined by the actual retail price of the item- most of them I got on Black Friday so $7 for Battleship would be a little too easy to earn. :) If one item costs $15 and another is $20 they will have to decide to open the $15 item or keep going until they get to the $20 item. Then we'll start over for the next chance to open something.
Here is what I purchased:
|Retail is $20 but I got it for $7 on Black Friday at Target.|
|Story Cubes- retail $10 but only $6 on Amazon.|
|Hedbanz game- bought this on Black Friday at Target but retail is $17.|
|This fingerprint stamp set from Lakeshore- book and ink pad. Retail $22. |
I bought the ink pad for $10 at Lakeshore and the book for $8 on Amazon.
|Mr. Sketch Scented Markers 18 pack! The kiddos love these for word work. Retail $16.|
What would you pick for your kids?
