Slow progress and Target/Staples/Borders finds

   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.

Have a great day!



  1. Those wonder tubes are super cool! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. I had something similar to those wonder tubes when I was a kid, but there was never a list of things to find, how fun!
