If you had $1000 to buy supplements, what would you purchase for elementary aged children (3rd, 4th, and 6th)? Full curriculum has already been purchased. The only restrictions are that they have to be related to the core curriculum and available through Amazon.
**Thank you for all the suggestions. We are doing anatomy as our science this year, so I decided to use a portion and get anatomical models (heart, lung, stomach, eye, ear, torso). I'm also getting a globe, a few math manipulative and books of game/activity ideas, some reading books and some supplemental writing material, and some art materials. I still have almost half left, so I'm going to hold on to it and see what they need throughout the year.

A new globe!! (I like my map, but a Globe would be so nice!)
