In the meanwhile, I've been cleaning out my filing cabinet, filing ideas away, and generally preparing my room for the summer. As I am organizing, I am also creating a catalog of the cool math tools in my cupboard.

- Hands-On Equations (thank you http://www.donorschoose.org/)
- Algebra Tiles (student sets) (thank you http://www.donorschoose.org/)
- Magnetic Tiles for my whiteboard (thank you http://www.donorschoose.org/)
- Power Blocks
- Algebra Base 10 Blocks (thank you http://www.donorschoose.org/)
- Measuring tapes, rulers, yardsticks
- Blue painters' tape
- Paper plates
- Paper cups (3 oz), Styrofoam cups
- Construction Paper
- Stack of Graph Paper
- Collection of partially used spiral notebooks & composition books
- Chart Paper (1 inch graph)
- Yarn/String
- Dice
- Bingo markers for counting chips
- Sheet protectors
- Dry Erase Sleeves ... I like these much better than whiteboards for individual student use
- Markers, crayons, colored pencils, dry erase markers
- Jolly Ranchers, Tootsie Roll Pops, Dum-Dums, and Smarties

**In a shared closet ...**

... Rubber - Band Cannons ... exploration of linear and quadratic functions

**Thinking about for next year ...**- a set of barbies for barbie bungee (goodwill???)
- a set of matchbox cars (pretty sure my grandson has enough to share)
- a set of acrylic frames to post stations around the room (Amazon)
- a set of large (24 x 32) whiteboards for group work

First off, I definitely like your blog header. Math sure is beautiful! Second, thank you for sharing your math tools. Having these kinds of teaching collaterals can help interest students, especially kids, on the subject. They would find math fun rather than boring.
