Now I don't normally go shopping this early in the summer, but Target was calling my name.
First I got these neat Stacking bins. I have an idea to organize my centers with these. I'll have a post on that later.
I also got some fancy duct tape! I seriously spent 20 minutes deciding on what tape to get. It was tough, but I finally decided on this combination. I've got lots of plans for this tape.
Next I got these clear bins with lids. I plan to keep my math manipulatives in these.
I also got these clear bins without lids. I plan to use this system for supplies this year. I just need to get some cups.
So while I was at Target I ran into one of my students in the dollar section. This always seems to happen to me. It's enough to make me avoid the dollar spot all together. I kid, I kid. She's a sweet girl and her family is lovely. I just always feel so awkward when I run into my students in the "real world." I have to switch back into teacher mode, which can be difficult because I tend to turn it off in the summer. Does anyone else feel the same?
So lucky me, when I got home I had one more purchase waiting for me. The books from amazon I ordered.
I wanted to use more read alouds for character building this year. I'm working on a little guest blogger post with these books. So look for that soon!
I'm sure July and August's posts will have quite a bit more purchases. I'm trying to not go to crazy yet.
