So the weekend after the fourth of July is the unofficial start of back-to-school shopping. The Staples penny sales have started and everyone is marking their Crayola markers down to 99 cents. This all makes me giddy!!! A few of the blogs I follow started posting all of the cool things they have gotten at the Target Dollar Spot, so I
So, at my local Target, they haven't started to put the teacher stuff the Dollar Spot, but everything is 70% off, so I went a little crazy (and when I say crazy, I got all of this for $13!)
First off, I need some blogger picture taking 101. I took these with my phone, so they aren't the best...but I promise, I will learn!
Lots of 30 cent prizes for the prize box!
I found these readers (for 30 cents! Can I say that enough?) I am super excited because they go along with some of our thematic units in second grade. Yes, they are in English, but I think they will be good to read when we bridge the units to English. Then there is this Brilliant Reader book and it is a journal that kids record and write about the books they read. If I taught an English general ed class, I would easily pick up a class set of these (for 30 cents each!), but I think I am going to look at it for ideas for a Spanish one!
These guys...I have some ideas for centers from them. A lot of my ideas come from here and I have some of my own Spanish centers up my sleeve, too. The baskets in the back are strawberry baskets...Hmmm, what can I do?
Then my calendar dilemma: These pictures are from Target because I didn't buy yet:
Look at all this chevron, stripes love at Target. I can't decide which one I want for my personal planner, but my desk planner will definitely be this one...
This is seriously my most favorite time of year.
