As I am sure you guessed, those last 6 files are still not done. No worries, I promise to get them done after I write this post. While avoiding school and house work today I decided to go to Target. Especially because I got a Target gift card for the holidays. I thought I might find some Christmas items on sale... Nope! To my surprise they had cleared EVERYTHING Christmas out. :/ There went my bright idea. However, the cloud has a silver lining. The Dollar Spot was STOCKED with Valentines day and other cool items too.
I had arms full of items, put them all in my cart and decided I should put half of it back. While I had tons of ideas for all the goodies I chose I reminded myself that I had tons of stuff from last year. Here were some of the items I picked.
I found some super cute fruit and veggie magnets. I plan to use these when we talk about food groups.
There were the encouraging pencils I found for the 100th day of school.
I got these two paper holders for a new project I have in mind. I will use them to hold papers I currently have stacked on my desk/ table. You will see, I have a post planed for it, with a freebie, sometime next week.
Here is what it looks like from the side. Please excuse the mess of my new purse, hat, scarf and fleece jacket back there. I was so excited to take pictures I dropped everything down and took pictures. I am really into gray this year. Aren't they cute?
I found this cute triangle and thought it would be a great attention getter in the class.
When I saw these, my first thought was, "I can make those!" but once I started thinking about it I didn't want to do the work. I figured $4 dollars for 32 was a good deal. Time = Money. I plan to laminate and put all my students V-day goodies in here for them.
Here is what is going in the heart envelops... pencils, erasers and stickers.
This is my favorite find today. Glow bracelets! I am going to use them to create Lindsey, The Teacher Wife" You make my heart glow" goodie. That's right no more candy, no sugar, just something fun. :) However, I think I might get them some strawberries, for fun. If you haven't visited The Teacher Wife you better go right away. Lindsey is awesome and she even has a freebie for this!
However, I think I might get them some strawberries, for fun. :) I was looking for these and just happened on them, on my way out of Target, and was SOOOO excited. I think I scared some people.
I also found these super cute Betty Boo pencils, for myself. :)
The last item I got for my class was this mesh file folder holder. I was really looking for a "light" cardboard box like one, which I didn't find, for another project. :/ However, I wanted this exact one a long time ago. I will share what I create with it mater this week, but I will give you one clue... it has to do with organization. :P
Right now it is storing all my school goodies. The best part? Everything but the last file holder was just $1.00!
I bought some other great items, but they were not at all school related so I left them out. I do have to say that there are tons of great items I put back, that I just know you guys could do WONDERS with. So if your looking for some great stuff, head on down to the Big T.
Now I am off to work on those last 6 ELL files.
