Target Dollar Spot Finds

After seeing so many fabulous things other teachers were finding in the Target Dollar Spot, I decided to head there and check it out…here’s what I ended up with:

I got these great turquoise tubs that I used to make my math tubs out of (see yesterday’s post).  They were $3 each. The cups I found in the summer/picnic section and they were $0.79 each.  I got 7 tubs and 14 cups.

I also found lots of stickers, pointers, pencils, and Dr. Seuss stuff.  I bought enough of the paper Dr. Seuss hats to last me the next couple of years. I picked up this turquoise bulletin board/chalkboard too for $3.  I had a dry erase board on my door and it got knocked off.  This one fit my room colors (black and turquoise), so I decided to use it instead of a dry erase board. I think I bought out all the stickers they had! These are great for our 100’s day sticker books, so I picked up LOTS.  We usually switch rooms on 100’s day, so I end up seeing 125 Kindergarten students and each one wants to make a sticker book = LOTS of stickers needed!

Not from the Dollar Spot, but just as exciting, I picked up a Leap Reader pen on CLEARANCE!! I also got two more books to add to our collection of Leap Reader books.  I was able to enter a contest earlier in the summer and already had 3 of these books and I used a gift card to purchase another Leap Reader pen.  So we now have 2 Leap Reader pens and 5 books to help us start the year off.  I plan on using these in one of my Literacy Work Stations.
