The Second Grade Teachers had a much needed Girls night out. Eating at Casa's and a little shopping, and desert at Spoons a wonderful yogurt place with all those yummy toppings. I wasn't going to spend anymore of my own money on school stuff BUT... Well, we found so many goodies at the Dollar Tree just had to buy some. As you can see on the right. There were synonym, antonym, homonym, nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and compound words. Of course I had to get one of each. Will have to share later this year how I will use them in class. I got the little sorting card board sticks for easily putting students in groups for activities. My son wanted me to buy some at the Teacher Store and I think they were about $8.00. Mine were $1.00!!! The thing I was most excited about was the voting box for $1.00. With it being election year I am super excited to have this and the I voted stickers. I also hit the Target Dollar spot and picked up the thin white boards which were 4 for $1.00 and the pocket chart was there too which I am planning on using for a job chart.
Sooo... are you finding some good Back to School bargains?
