Monthly Calendar Pocket Chart
I, along with most students I've ever met, LOVE looking at things through a microscope, and a hand held field scope is one of the best classroom item I have. It uses batteries for the light, and in my experience they last a long time. Just set the scope on the item and it shows great magnification. At $9-$18 dollars they are very cost effective, too. I'd put them on a wish list. Maybe you'll get one or two for Christmas!
