Each vacation we have from school, a few of my school friends and I trek to our closest IKEA and buy lots of things we don’t really need.  Here’s what I got from our Thanksgiving trip.


I got this adorable cart I’ve had my eye on for 2 years now!  I got rid of the previous shelf that was here, got rid of lots of stuff and consolidated it down to this. 🙂  My friend who went along suggested that I could use this card to help pass out materials to the kids more quickly.  I love that idea…just load up the materials on the cart and roll them to the kids or pick up materials from them.  I pushed it around my room and felt a little like a stewardess. 🙂  IMG_1348

Here’s a look at what’s sitting on the top shelf.  These are the things I use on a regular basis.  The tall pink thing you see is my dollar store collapsible trash can.  I put things in it when I’m demo-ing how to do something. IMG_1349

The second shelf holds all my demo materials, pattern blocks, cubes, tiles, cards for our agenda, etc. IMG_1350This is another cart I got that I shared about a few weeks ago.  I went back to IKEA and got two more of these.  I’m using it to store the masters for my Math and Literacy Work Stations.  That way if I run out, I can quickly find the replacements. This is the same cart that I use for my small group materials.

Don’t forget that today is the first day of the Tpt Cyber Monday and Tuesday sale.
