For the first resource challenge, I used clothes pins to help students practice their fact families. I grabbed 10 clothes pins and used front and back to number 1-20. Then I added popsicle sticks for the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division signs. I found a a little bag lying around that was able to store both the popsicle sticks and clothes pin. This is a good busy work activity students can do at their seat. Each table group can have a bag. The student will simply draw a popsicle stick and two clothes pins from the bag, clip it on, then write the sentence and answer on a sheet of paper. This is great for all ages because you can take away the multiplication/division popsicle sticks for the younger ones but then keep them for the older grades
