I visited my local Euro Giant this week to stock up on some ‘necessary’ school supplies.
I love these Worry Monsters I have one in my class that any child could use but the little one on the keyring is perfect for one child to have themselves. Even though I had the Senior Classes they loved the fluffy worry monster.
It can be hard to find some resources for Small World but check out these resources. I found it hard to source Sea Animals when I covered the sea topic in Aistear so was delighted to see these sets for €1.50. The Zoo animals were similar and would be ideal for a story sack on Dear Zoo. I already have a few of the airplanes for Small World for the airport or holiday topic.
These pipe cleaners were ideal for Junk Art. There are lots of different types and are easy for little fingers to manipulate. The fun dough looked great too, perfect for fine motor or even to add to Story Sacks in the class.
Euro Giant also has lots of resources for Role Play Area.
Finally I love this game for Senior Classes. It is a fun way to develop Critical thinking. This game is also available on an app but it’s easier to visualise the solution with the game itself. A bargain at only €5!
I was in there yesterday and picked up a big scarecrow for €5. Would be lovely for an autumn notice board with a pumpkin patch.
