I'd like to give a shout out to Dollar Tree :-) I read all the time about Dollar Tree deals on other teachers blogs, but as a sixth grade teacher I don't think I every truly appreciated Dollar Tree. I just didn't get it. But now, that I am preparing to teach first grade, the Dollar Tree is my new best friend! I priced baskets for my classroom library at teacher supply stores (yikes $$$), and on Amazon ($$), and a few other websites, and then I went to Dollar Tree ($). Have you seen the wall of brightly colored baskets in all shapes and sizes that are there right now?! See below:
|This is the stack of baskets I purchased for my library and for math /science tubs. $1 per basket = happy teacher! |
Next, I bought a laminator from Amazon because all this stuff plus the resources I've printed and cut out would amount to one HUGE laminating bill. The pic below doesn't even include everything!!! Anyway, the laminator was only $19.95, so I'll let you know how it works out.
Finally, I am linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade for my first ever CURRENTLY linky party.
And, now I'm going to check out her Teacher Block Party Linky! You can link up with your grade level and meet some new teacher friends who teach the same grade as you. Fun, fun!
