I went into my classroom today to continue working on my book collection. I spent most of my time just sorting. This is only about 1/3 of all the books I have. Stacks Stacks and more Stacks.
Here are a few treasures that I found in Target's dollar section over the last few weeks.
I love these double sided dry erase boards 4 for $1. A new Word Work activity, yippee!
Staples had these great dry erase notebooks to practice printing and number formation. Cheap at a $1. I bought 6.
Look at these cool things, Wonder Tubes. I know everyone has heard of discovery bottles that you can make. Well, these are tubes that have lots of little sequin and pictures inside to discover. Each label has I Spy riddles and rhymes of things to find in the tube. I think at the beginning of the year I will have them use the tube to find different items and write what they find into their vocabulary notebook. Each tube is different. I love the sparkle. I bought them at Borders Books for about $2.50 each. I will probably only use a couple at a time to stretch out the activity throughout the fall. There is an A set, a B set, and a C set.
We finally had some rain today! It was a much need relief from all the dryness.
