Using Dollar Spot Erasers in the Classroom

Hey there! We were so excited when we heard that we get to take over on of our FAVE Instagram accounts for the day: Target Teachers! If you don't already follow them, you need to get on it.
They post TONS of great ideas for using Target products in the classroom. (Note: Staging a photo shoot at Target with 4 kids is not easy...Especially with a baby and 2 toddlers! All 4th of July clothing is from TARGET!)

We absolutely LOVE using those cute mini erasers in the classroom, so thought we'd share some of the ways we use them.

Our students love playing math games during our guided math time. Erasers as counters make the games even more fun! A little novelty goes a long way.

 Most of our monthly math tubs include these "cover your number" games. We use the erasers to cover the numbers to practice addition, subtraction, skip counting by 10s, and telling time.

You wouldn't expect graphing to be a hot item, but these games go quickly because they love building the graphs with their themed erasers.
Addition and subtraction race games are always favorites.
We use the erasers as our little game pieces.

Another fun way to use mini erasers is on sight word mats. It's a fun way to change things up!
You can find these sight word maps as freebies in Jana's TPT store.

You can find these 2nd grade Math Tubs in Jana's TPT: September, October, November, December, January, February, March, & May.

We also shared our closet organizer (also from Target) and got lots of questions about the labels. Grab these labels as a flash freebie HERE.

Another thing we found at Target that's great for the classroom is this plastic bin. It's a perfect size for lunch boxes, library books, etc. We cut out the vinyl letters on the Silhouette and added some navy washi tape.

Thanks so much for stopping head to Target and grab some mini erasers from the Dollar Spot! Your students will be so happy that you did!!!  (Grab a new lunch basket and shoe organizer while you're there too!)
