I loved Highlights magazines as a kid. I liked the Hidden pictures, the rebus stories, the poems, but my FAVORITE was the Goofus and Gallant pages. I was really excited when I found this book at the dollar spot this week. Here are some other things I picked up:
I think the Rebus story book will be fun for articulation and syntactic structures. The Poems to Go book looked like a fun way to address inferencing and maybe figurative language.
The success charts are actually for my four year old. But I liked how it has it broken up by the goal and the child's performance each day of the week. It could be a good resource for home programs. Dream it Up has 2 question prompts written in a talking bubble on each page. I'm planning to use it for carryover and language reasoning activities. Questions include: What do you think computers will be able to do in 10 years that they can't do now. (Scary question...) In the corner, the book with the two boys is a Modern Day Goofus and Gallant. Good for basic social skills training. And I got a plastic bathtub. I've got an idea for an activity with this. I'll let you know as soon as I figure it out.
What great finds have you found at the Dollar Store?
