I love orange tic tacs and Walmart sells these giant boxes of them. After I finished my tic tacs I knew there had to be some use for the empty boxes. And viola! Dice shakers! Might be a fun way to change up a simple math dice game. They don't have to open it to see their roll and dice don't get tossed halfway across the room.

I'm going to do Daily 5 for the first time this year so I'm spending the summer getting materials created. Made check for understand marks out of file folders. Going to get them laminated and have the kids use them when they partner read.

Made 2 behavior bingo posters for less than $2! Got a two pack of blank calendar posters, a two pack of calendar numbers, and glue sticks. I cut and pasted the calendar to make it a 5x5, glued the numbers down and viola! I printed the monsters on card stock to use as markers. Just need to have it laminated. I will write the numbers 1-25 on tokens (poker chips work great) the students will have to earn the chance to draw a number. We will mark that number with a monster and when they get 5 in a row they get a reward as a class, like a game day or a special treat.
