Dollar Tree Homeschooling Items

I popped into my local Dollar Tree this week and decided to look over the items that could be used for preschoolers and early elementary children. I had hoped to find those cook dice that are about three inches and have a dry erase circle on each side but my store was out of these. If you find any in your local store, I suggest you snap up a couple because they can be very useful.  You can write or draw pictures for sit, stand, jump, letters, numbers, letter blends, sight words, and any number of other things.

Next, these letter, number, and shape foam puzzles are great for kinesthetic learners. They have some nice texture to them. :) You can use the capital letters and lower case letters for matching once they are at that place. You can also put together CVC words. As you can see, this is one item that can be used in many different ways as your child grows and learns.

This play dough is really nice! I bought some for use with my grandson and I was surprised with how nice it was. You can use it to form letters and numbers  with dough rolled into ropes as well as general play.

Here is a write-on wipe-off on one side and a chalk board on the other. This can be a good way to practice writing.

These foam dice come two to a package and can be used in a variety of ways. I try to remember to share more on that at another time.

These dice are interesting and can be used various ways too. It can be used to give your child some gross motor skill work and working on left, right, and center too. (Think Mother May I type game.)

Here’s cool timer that can be used for a number of things.

These cones can be set up to have children do gross motor activities. There are some flat ones too that I think might hold a ball, which be a fun activity.

These fractional foam circles are cool to talk about fractions when ready. There are three different ones, each with a different number of sections.

I don’t know if this is similar to those dice I mentioned earlier in that you can write whatever you want on the sections but it looks pretty cool. :)

I hope these things give you some ideas of some inexpensive things you can use to help educate your children. There are also bowls, pans, trays and even the cat litter pan that you can use for things like shaving cream and rice where you can have them practice drawing the letters and numbers.

Oh and don’t forget the stickers, craft supplies, coloring books, and educational workbooks. I’d recommend getting several things to begin with and then using a few dollars each week to get a few more.

I hope this is helpful to you and your children.

Until next time,
