These are the finds I meant to share last week. All of this came from Big Lots when they were having 20% off your entire purchase. The baskets are boring, but I'm really excited about the dry erase "boards" and my new rug! I plan to use the white dry erase board on my back door to take attendance/lunch count with my bottle cap numbers. I'm not sure how I will use the blue circles, yet.
Kristen's (Ladybug Teacher Files) CRAFT and VOICES headers.
2. Lamp: I'm going to use this lamp in my library. It's going to be in a dark corner of the room, so we'll need the extra light.
3. Mainstay Shelves @ Walmart: I bought two of these cheap shelves to use around my guided reading table. We are not allowed to have teacher desks, so my GR table is my desk (without storage). It will come in handy.
1. 5 2-packs of "Award Buttons."I saw this idea on Pinterest. (Have you ever seen a great idea on Pinterest and thought you pinned it, but when you go back to look at it, you discover that you never actually did pin it? Frustrating.) Click here for the original blog post. Whenever a student makes a 100% on a test, they get to wear a button for everyone to see! It's supposed to be a Ron Clark idea... I'm thinking I might go back and get more. I'd hate for everyone to make a 100 and only have 10 buttons! :)
2. Great Work! Stamp
3. Chalk Board: Have y'all seen this on Pinterest? I would like to do a collage like this with my class this year. I think it would be sweet to have up on the wall. :)
Those are all my finds for now. I have more, but I'm going to share those on Monday! :)
One last thing... Did anyone watch CBS's new show, 3, last night? I thought it was the cutest thing ever! What did y'all think?
