I've found a new thrift store in my area, and it has quickly become my new favorite. Not only does it have a wide selection of items, but it also is clean, well-organized, and doesn't have that funky "Goodwill" smell when you walk in the door. (What IS that smell anyways?? They ALL seem to have that funky smell -- no matter which store you go in!)
While we were waiting for swim lessons to start, we ventured in to see what new items had been put out since last week. Goodness! I couldn't believe me eyes! I was seriously 'ten kinds of excited.' (Sorry Abby for stealing your phrase, but its the only term that seems to best describe how I felt!)
So, what did I find that was SOOO rocking (at least to me)?
- a magnetic US puzzle, which I didn't realize I stuck it upside down in its packaging before I took this picture... as you know, you just can't have enough US puzzles, especially when you're trekking across the states!
- a small hexagonal container -- perfect for those open/close activities, storing math counters, talking about shapes and geometric solids, or the container for a transferring activity, Yep, this is the same container that I used for the gold transferring work in my California post.
So, have you found any great educational finds this week?
