Well, I've started shopping for new things to make my classroom more colorful, cheerful and organised.
Here are some of my purchases over the past couple of days:
Boxes, Boxes, Boxes! These are smaller ones that I am using to hold my Grade 6 books and resources (the bigger boxes end up being way to heavy). Smaller food containers that I keep small games, dice, spinners etc in. All the books are from a clearance box at Target. I LOVE the poetry books. I've already got the older versions which had BW pictures throughout - these ones are in colour. They have cool names too:
Unreal, Banana Peel
Real Keen, Baked Bean
Far Out, Brussel Sprout
All Right, Vegemite
Roll Over, Pavlova
Didn't really want to pay $5 for each, but I just had to have them! I love using poetry for teaching blends, digraphs and word families, rhyming words etc etc so these will definitely come in handy.
I got these at the local $2 shop (we don't have 'dollar stores' here!). The most expensive item I saw in this shop was $750!! Not so cheap! I've got some pencil holders, little trays to hold things and these stands that I thought would help give me some more room by being able to put stuff underneath.
I also bought a couple of bigger boxes to add the resources from my theme units.
