I'm already thinking about next school year! I am excited about two purchases I made yesterday on amazon.com
The first one is a set of Learning Resource Buzzers.
Each of these buzzers makes a different sound (honk, doorbell, boxing bell, and boing!). I also bought a set of similar buzzers that make animal noises. Cool! I already have my class get into groups quite a bit, so this will be a fun way to have challenging competitions. And, best of all, I won't have to be the judge of who answered first - I am hoping it will be easy to tell since each group will have a different sound.
I also purchased a set of Magnetic Whiteboard Spinners.
