Flea Market Treasures

I was perusing my church carnival's flea market leftovers and stumbled across a Montessori teacher's treasure chest! Here's what I found...

This miniature bamboo book stand will fit perfectly in the Cultural area of the classroom. It will showcase Aline Wolf's Cosmic Wonder books beautifully. My kids (when I refer to "my kids" it will typically mean the children in my class. My actual kids will be referred to as "G"-the big girl and "g"- the little girl) adore these little books and sometimes choose one to copy and take home. When I say copy, I literally mean they sit down with a blank booklet and hand write the entire book, along with illustrations. Poor kids, little do they know they can go online and buy one copy for about $6!

...as if I don't have enough miniature baskets in my storage area. I just couldn't resist.

It's hard to see in the picture, but this is a bag of small wooden apples and a bag of sea glass. Perfect for Practical Life activities in September (apples) and June (sea glass).

This pint-size pitcher and bowl will make good use in the classroom for fingertip sensitizing before using the sandpaper letters or touch boards.

All of this for a whopping $2.50!!
