I'm now currently working on ideas inspired by others and their themes/ideas for the classroom. You can look at my Pinterest pages on Back to School, Classroom Themes, and Classroom Ideas for more!
Here's a peek at my "finds" this past week:
Walmartdry erase dots from A.C. Moore: I plan to put my objectives on it (I won't have to take up precious board space and I think it'll really add to the room!) This was a GREAT find from Walmart: red plastic toy chest $4! I plan on putting my "treasures" of books in there for our monthly book exchange!
Goodwill: TON of books plus cute pillow to use in the room (obviously a teacher had retired and donated her books...my daughter even claimed a few before I use them in my classroom!).
Big Lots: $5 in stationery sectionStaples: Those wonderful peacock folders were 50 cents each; other folders (grabbed for my older son) 99 cents each. Staples is also having a great deal for $10 you get a 15% card on your whole purchase 1x/day until almost the end of September!
Local teacher store, which unfortunately is closing in October. :(Another Goodwill day - see the Star Wars and monster trucks??? Anytime I find those I grab them for my boys!
Another GREAT find: Michael's....the lamp was less than $12 and the clipboard was less than $3 on sale! Also safari ribbon, clothespins, safari stickers, and glue dots.
Sneak Peek of some of the items I'm working on:
So, that's what I have so far...hopefully be able to put it in a bundle for the items more "original"...the ones where I am basically borrowing the idea and making it 2nd grade friendly, I'll post as a freebie :)
