To whet your appetites for the upcoming HEAV convention, I thought I’d share some of my favorite finds from the EXPO Hall last year!  Just to remind you to save your pennies! It’s not all curriculum and books, though, of course, I bought some of those there too.

???????????????????????????????This is a digital microscope. We used it to examine our butterfly cocoons and it pops the picture up on the computer screen. Very cool.

???????????????????????????????Our felt pieces for our new classroom calendar. The girls “decorate” each month and then add the days to it. An added bonus for us, the kit included the months and days of the week in Spanish.

???????????????????????????????And here is another felt kit of different “animals” we use for math manipulatives. Super easy and very portable!

I also was a total sucker and got the girls felt “dolls” for them to play with. Not very expensive and pretty popular in our house!

???????????????????????????????This is an ADORABLE Lego animation movie made by a homeschooling family. My girls love this!

???????????????????????????????Technically, you could call this curriculum, but I don’t tell the girls that. They BEG to play with these paper dolls! (btw, I laminated all these before I let the girls touch them. I’m hoping it makes them last longer.) Oh and these are not the punch out kind, I had to cut them all out. It took forever, but were a still a huge hit!

???????????????????????????????And these are still unopened, but I’m waiting until we get around to reading this book.

???????????????????????????????These are great. We use these for listening with headphones during “quiet time.”

???????????????????????????????Okay, the booth where I bought these were my “splurge.” This I still need to frame, but I want to hang it in my living room. Isn’t it absolutely beautiful?

This one is in a smaller frame and sits on my prayer bench. I just love the verse. And what are not pictured is one I purchased for my mother-in-law in Spanish, and table runner. As I said, I splurged.
