It is that time of year....I have a pile of mismatched cheap gloves that no on in my class wants to claim. They are worthless $1.00 gloves that don't keep hands warm at all and no one seems to know how they got all over our floor!! Do I find this annoying? YES! But, I hate to throw things away...even cheap gloves. So, here is my list of useful ways to "recycle" these irritating & apparently orphaned articles of clothing:
1. Use them as white board erasers (I have collected so many over the years that each of my students keeps one in their seat sack as their eraser. Plus, they keep their marker inside their glove so it's fast and easy to find...theoretically.)
2. Have students put them on to clap syllables in words
5. Put them on the hands of any nose pickers you have (or hand lickers).
Ok, I'm out of ideas. I actually only use them for reasons 1 and 2 above but I think #5 might actually work!
