Check out my Target Dollar Spot finds!
These were fifty cents! I use them all the time to have kids answer take turns/answer questions. I just throw them the ball and they play around with it while they answer the question, then throw it back to me.
These books were fifty cents too! These are the only four they had, but they look good first graders and/or lower second graders.
I just picked these up because I know the girls love them. The words are in Spanish AND English, which is great because I teach ESL and many of the kids are Hispanic and speak Spanish at home.
I picked these up, figuring I could use them at my writing station. The orange one was only fifty cents and would be perfect for procedural writing. It has a place for ingredients and directions.
Dry erase pockets! They only come in red, blue, and yellow so.....
I found my first roll of washi tape at Target for $2.99 and used it to make the dry erase pockets look better. I was noticing some popular brands were selling decorative tape, but they were way more expensive and come with much less than this roll. Guess it is time for me to visit Etsy! I had issues with this roll sticking to itself...as you can see in the picture, so I don't know if that is a common problem or it was just the brand?
I also worked on redoing my teacher toolbox today. I made one last summer, but made it much more complicated than it needed to be. I messed up on the spray paint really badly and ended up having to buy another. Worked out because I also lost some of the drawers so then I had some replacements...
This is my OLD teacher tool box. Notice the blank drawer!? I made it with scrapbook paper. I also just used the labels that everyone else used, which turns out were not really the categories I wanted, so I decided to redo the whole thing. Plus I wanted it to be purple and white.
Here's the new one:
I painted the top too with a stencil!
I have been seeing all the tutorials about how to make editable Power Points and still secure the graphics and decided to give it a shot since everyone has their own label preferences. So I made an editable teacher toolbox product in dots and chevron and a variety of colors. You can type whatever you want on the labels, print them out, cut them, and attach them to your toolbox. I just used double sided Scotch tape. I included tabs for the tops of the drawers too. It was waaaay easier than all the measuring, cutting, and gluing I did last year.
I made the same file in the following colors. Just click on any of the images to see the product in my store. Read to the bottom if you'd like to win one!
