Anyone have ideas for ziploc bag centers?
What is a ziplock bag center? Is it a center that can be contained in a ziplock bag, or something else?
I love this site and will print/laminate the pieces and keep them in ziploc bags.
Yes, a center that is contained in a ziploc bag.
These web sites look great! I bookmarked them until I have time to go back and play.
Those 2 1/2 gallon bags might be great for holding larger center things/folders/etc.

I was wondering. I will let you know. It would be great to have it all contained in One big basket (maybe a laundry basket)
I posted it yesterday but for some reason it didn't show up. I advise not using the new type of bags that have the zipper pull tab. They do not last! The tab breaks and then you can't close them properly without them. I am having to rebag (is that a word?) a lot of stuff.
Thanks for the tip.
The Dollar Tree has of different sized bags.
One year I did, "Homework in a Bag" (3rd grade). It was fantastic! I didn't do it this year because I have 25 kids, but think I might start again next year with my smaller class.
What did your homework in a bag consist of? I heard of someone else doing a monthly calendar. I am thinking if I have them read at home and practice spelling that might be where I need to draw the line.
The homework in a bag was simply a collection of ziploc bags with activities inside. Some had math games, some had flash cards, some had activities to do. Each had a # on the outside. The children had the opportunity to go to the bin and pick an activity. I had a log that was kept in their folder numbered 1-30 and the parents would sign off on it.
Is that because you had 30 bags?

Yep. Sorry if I wasn't clear. I had 30 bags available at a time. with the smaller numbers it seemed to work out that kids always had a bag available that they hadn't done yet. Another option would be to rotate them. For example, if a kiddo had bag 3 tonight they would have bag 4 tomorrow and bag 5 the next night.
Just another idea - these would make great Sub-Tub activities. I'm going to make a few days worth of work in case of emergency absences (on my part) and these will be in it. Thanks for sharing.
Egg carton multiplication! Label each section of an egg carton bottom with a different number. Place two marbles inside. Have the kids shake the carton and whatever two numbers the marbles land on, they have to multiply. (So if the marbles land on 3 and 8 you do 3x8.)
Awesome four square. That's the kind of stuff I am looking for.
