I posted a bit about this in the crafting section, and realized, I should post about it here too.
I love finding creative ways to get my kids excited about school.
I like to take the rhinestones and beads out of broken jewelry to let my kids use: crafts, sorting, counting, shapes, math, size order, all kinds of neat things. I have to keep my youngest otherwise occupied though, lol! I did the same with different kinds of tumbled rock gems. My kids absolutely love sorting and counting and treasure hunting, and gluing them to paper for unique pictures.
I also get all kinds of gems, all stages: the faceted and Cabochons ( mostly broken, chipped or cracked), tumbled, rough uncut, lots of unsearched gems, fake but real looking gems, lab created gems.... I love it! The kids are learning so much about different kinds of rocks, and it gets them excited to learn. It is an investment, but you can find some awesome deals sometimes.
