Hello all! Yesterday I shared a sneak peek of some of the back-to-school things I found while shopping for anything but back-to-school. :)
Today I wanted to share them in more detail. Everything shown was just $1.00 each!
These are cardboard star trays that I'll use for turning in "3-star" work. They are the perfect size for 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Star Stickers in packs of over 600 for $1.00! The rubber stamp says "Awesome!" (a word that I use all the time!) and it also has stars on it for stamping "3-Star" work!
Mini erasers in the shapes of stars, frogs, & hearts to use as manipulatives in our Debbie Diller style Math WorkStations.
Alphabet & number puzzles that I'm going to add to our choices for "Waiting Work".
I love using mini buckets for all sorts of things - sharpened/unsharpened pencils, namesticks, activity sticks, song sticks, crayons, etc. I love these colors!
Foam hand shapes and "High Five" bookmarks with a monkey on them (I love monkeys!). I haven't decided what I'm going to use the foam hands for, yet, but I have a few ideas I'm toying with.
These are plastic multi-pocket file folders in turquoise & bright pink. I think I might use these as organizers in my new Thirty-one organizing utility bag. I ordered it last week and can't wait for it to get here!
Mini pocket chart in purple. I love mini pocket charts and use them in many different ways. I already have them in red, blue, and green. Now I have four different colors & this will help for organization at centers (each child will get their own color & I can now color-coordinate their other materials.)
And last but not least - a dry-erase speech bubble and dry-erase markers (2/$1.00)! A few ideas I have for this are to display our graphing question of the day, number of the day, letters/sight words of the week...hmmm...so many possibilities!
That's all for now. I'm off to run errands and then it's my son's all star baseball game tonight. He's the starting pitcher - I'm not nervous for him at all (if I keep telling myself that, it might actually be true!) Aaahhh! :\
