Oh gosh! I had big plans today when I woke up...and it all sounded so easy in my head! So I headed out to all of our favorite stores: Office Max, Michael's, and Target! I got all of my colored copying done and bought all different kinds of supplies for the things I want to make for my classroom! Some of these are items I have either been selling or are free on my TPT...I finally got them printed out for myself!
This just brings a smile to my face! I can't wait to get crafting!
Items in the picture:
-buckets and bookmarks I got from Target
-rainbow colored ribbon from Michael's
-my "We Love..." banner in the front (of course, I am doing
the fifth grade one, but I sell it in all K-5) - cant wait to add ribbon
to it so that it is super cute and ready for meet-the-teacher day!
-my Leader of the Month display posters (not yet on TPT)
-my Teacher Yearly Binder I can't wait to set up
-and other materials I need in order to complete all of this!
Here is a close up image on those buckets I found in the Target DOLLAR SECTION!
Those little stars are chalkboard paint!! I plan to use one at each of my groups for their pencils and things. I am going to write their group name on the bucket with chalk!
I was really excited to find these bookmarks in the Target dollar section, as well. Since I teach math, these are going to be really great when we are learning how to measure to 1/8th of an inch! I love how the 16th's of an inch are not labelled on these rulers...sometimes that is really confusing on the first day of measuring to 1/8th of an inch. I can't wait to use these in my class!
This is going to be my FAVORITE part to my crafting this week...painting!!
I plan to paint inspirational quotes on these canvases (by hand, so we'll see how they work out! Wish me luck!)
I got this set of 10 canvases from Michael's. It sells for $19 normally, but they had the 15% off for teachers, and then the woman at the counter gave me 25% off because...well, I guess I don't know...she did not really give me a reason! But I am so grateful she scanned that little coupon she had behind the counter because it brought my total down to $18 for those canvases, the paint, and the ribbon! :) That is less than the canvases were supposed to be on their own!
I am always looking for new crafts for my rainbow colored room.
Any one have any ideas for more crafting I can do!?
