School Stash part 1

Tuesday, July 17, 2012
So I had to go to TOYS R US because a little birdie told me crayons were 25 cents each...whoo - hoo.  No limits either.  Then Target $1 bins were calling my name and I stocked up on these ADORABLE metal tins with chalkboard shapes on them.  I added some ribbon to make it cute and can't wait to use them.  Then Dollar Tree baskets and Lakeshore for a couple things.  I also jazzed up my whisper phones with yellow duct tape and black and white herringbone duct tape.  I love how they make all kinds of duct tape prints.  Time to cute -afy my classroom!!!!  I'm sure there will be a part 2 and 3 and 4....  LOL - I love my job!!

There were double sided lined white boards that I will use to practice writing sight words in guided reading groups too.

So how cute are those Dr. Seuss letters in the background from Lakeshore, how fun for March.

Get them while you can cuz you know Target won't have those cute tins next week...LOL
