I was perusing a few of the links and came across Alisha at
And she posted a few ideas that made me think "I HAVE to do that." I actually went right out to Staples and bought 6x6x6 mailing boxes to make her Back-to-School question dice. Check out her great ideas by clicking here!
These boxes were only $1.49 each and I thought that I could use them for reading comprehension questions, writing prompts, and Alicia's question idea. I am not usually one for shopping at Staples because the people who work there have this annoying habit of greeting you as soon as you walking in the door by shouting across the front of the store and then inevitably follow you around like you have no clue what you are looking for and they NEED to help you. I would swear they work on commission! I also think their prices can be a bit to high. I did find a pack of 3 reasonably good "big girl" scissors for $5.00, a Swingline (the best) hand held stapler for $5.00, 2 small post-it cubes for $4.00, and a roll of packing tape. I use packing tape to attach labels all over my room. Nothing beats it.
I made a printable with prompts to attach to the cube. Check out Alicia's idea and click here to get the printable!
