I Went Shopping! (Linky Party)

I'm joining the linky party over at Ladybug's Teacher Files.  I love shopping!

Here are some of the things that I've gotten lately. 

From Big Lots: 
spiral notebooks, pre-sharpened pencils, labels, pencil boxes, glue sticks
The idea:
Spiral notebooks will turn into whole class journals
Pencil boxes will turn into alphabet/word work collection boxes.
 From Barnes and Noble:
The Daily 5 book (I have used my Kindle version in the past, but I wanted a hard copy so I can write in the margins and highlight).  I also picked up some dot dicuts.  
 From the Dollar Tree:
pizza pans, stamp pads, cutsy pens/paperclips/binder clips, staples, pocket organizers, baskets
The idea:
Pizza pans will turn into my new hall pass board and the other ones will become word work magnetic boards 
Pocket organizers - center stuff or new prize "box"
Baskets - center stuff

 Not pictured:
Craft paint (Michaels)
Pillow cases (Dollar Tree)
Tri-fold boards (Michaels)

I really do love shopping!  Still so many more things to look out for... next trip I need to buy some magnets, alphabet stickers, and that cool magnetic paper.  

Hope you had a great day too!
