This week's fab finds are from Target (that Dollar Spot is SO addictive-their marketing directors are definitely keeping teachers in mind) and Lakeshore (which I absolutely LOVE since there's one less than a mile away from Mr. Perry's job). It's kind of a blessing and a curse at the same time)!
I usually keep most of my plans, assessment data, and important info in digital form, but these are so cute-I'll find some way to use them for planning and note keeping!
I got a class set of these dry erase boards-perfect for penmanship practice and writing along while we complete shared and interactive writing activities. They're two sided, lined, and only $1!
The Dollar Spot has all kinds of stickers, awards, and bookmarks right now!
These number and alphabet puzzles caught my eye because my three year old loves puzzles! I grabbed some for him and some for the classroom.
I fell in love with these cute little cards...how perfect for teaching action words (verbs) and animal characteristics! We do two huge units on animal research so these will be fun for the kids to use as they write their reports.
This is a giant pocket chart from Lakeshore. It's a word ladder! I know I could probably make something similar, but this one was so so cute! It's made by Educational Insights. It's $29.99, but I had a coupon for $5.00 of a purchase of $25.00 or more so I think it was well worth it. The pocket chart set includes 40 different word ladders in picture form and the letter cards to build the words.
This will be such a phenomenal phonemic awareness activity for readers who have difficulty segmenting, blending, and hearing sounds. I really like how it provides a place for the picture, letters, and writing. Later this summer I'm hoping to make some more versions of this type of activity for my Promethean board. I would love to practice them on the Promethean board in a whole group setting then allow students to use the pocket chart as a word work activity during Daily 5.
That's it for this week...did you find any great deals? If so, let me know!
