Free cycling

I have started school, taught my first ever teacher workshop,  and finally got a new air conditioner!  It has been busy so far.

I thought I would share free cycling with you.  Free cycling is a group you can join (I use yahoo groups) in which members post things they are getting rid of or ask anyone if they have a particular item. You can ask for that item and pick them up. I have gotten bags of books, a bean bag chair, and lots of games for my classroom. Everything is free. The purpose of this is keeping things out of landfills. I joined two local towns in their free cycling groups.

Today I am going through the bag of toys I got to determine what new games I can make from them. Last summer I made checkers and Jenga games for math. So far, I have made a Don't Break the Ice division game. I am debating what to use Chutes and Ladders and Candyland for...probably reading.


  1. Beth, thanks...I am now signed up for freecyle! Love your ideas!

    1. Awesome! Let me know if you get anything interesting.
