Happy July, friends! I would tell you Happy (insert day of the week), but all I know it is July. So, there we go. Today I am joining with dozens of amazing teacher-bloggers to bring you simple and promotion-free ideas for your classroom.
When we’re not using a set of Stacks, I keep them stacked in a large Sterilite container. I’ve seen some teachers store the cups in Pringles cans…BUT I’ve eaten maybe 10 Pringles in my entire life. So, this storage works for me!
- Addition and subtraction facts (doubles, doubles plus one, sums to 10)
- Sight words
- Times and clock faces
- Spanish/English translations
- States and capitals
- Parts of speech
- Greek and Latin Roots
- Practice moving from Fractions to decimals or decimals to percents
The possibilities for Stacks are endless and fun. Students love the game-feeling, and I love the urgency in which they practice/quiz each other. Have you used Stacks before? If so, what do you use them to review or practice?
If you enjoyed this idea, I’d love for you to connect with me on Teachers Pay Teachers, Facebook, Instagram where I share loads of pictures each week! Now, to read about dozens of other ready-to-use classroom ideas, check the link-up below! Happy reading, friends. 🙂

Lots of fun! And I don't know what day it is, either 😉 Such is the life of a teacher on break!
Love this! Do you have the printables somewhere? I love the I Can sheet as well as the student writing piece to keep them accountable! 🙂

I love this idea and I LOVE your direction sheet. I actually have some little cups like this in the pantry. Maybe I'll actually get to join in the Monday Made It Fun! 🙂
This is a great idea and seems like a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing from 3girls1apple.com

LOVE these!!! Putting Dixie cups on my shopping list right now!!! And random question, but where are those tubs from that you use to store everything? I'm looking for some that are a little taller than my current ones and those look great!

Where did you get your containers for your centers? Also the containers for your library? One of my goals is to be more organized this year and I love how you have things set up!
