Just call me Miss Ellaneous

Yet another post of randomness.  Well there is some direction to this post, but mostly just randomness. 

So I made my weekly trip 3rd trip in week, to Target and found some ever so cute things in the dollar bin.  Whoever thought you could spend so much after just 5 steps into a store? And then I made my way next door to another 
Fab-u-lous store called Michael’s! You know they put those stores together on purpose. To trap teachers!! 

And I found the following: 

How cute is this stuff? I love giving my little guy’s teachers gifts for no reason. I think all teachers deserve random thank you gifts. 
Then I made my way to Michael’s where I found WAY TOO MUCH!
If you are planning on doing this cute little idea that Cara Carroll at The First Grade Parade shared, then head to Michael’s. In addition, they have heart cookie cutters on sale for $0.49
They also had these for $0.99! How cute are these banners for your holiday party or even before.  
As I was blog stalking I saw a post about using cute little pointers for Guided Reading.  So the minute I saw these I knew exactly what I’d use them for, and unfortunately it won’t be to stir my martini 🙂 
They also had these cute little buckets for a dollar! 
So I decorated it up and it will hold our new heart pointers.
And last…
I thought I’d share one of my favorite items in my classroom.  My Teacher To Do Frame.  It’s simply a document a made, cut to fit and put in an 8 x 10 picture frame.  You simply use a dry erase marker to write down your To Dos. Check them off and erase when you need write new ones.  Sit it on your desk or guided reading table and you won’t forget those copies, plans, etc. any more!

Remember! You will have to trim to fit in the frame.

  1. I love it all! I just made a trip to Target and the dollar store today, too. If only I had more money to spend on such cute things! I especially love the to do list. Very cute! 🙂

  2. Love, love, love it! I found you through Teachers Who Blog and I'm glad! What great ideas (I'm in love with Michael's too). Can't wait to make one of those Teacher's To Do lists. Currently I'm in my senior year of undergraduate and this summer I start my Masters in Education. I'm always looking for ideas!
