Yes, this is my third post linking up with Ladybug’s classroom shopping linky party (you can see my first post HERE and my second post HERE). But I really haven’t been spending as much money as it seems. I went to my school to pick something up yesterday and so of course I had to stop by that Target (it’s a different one than the one down the street from me) and see what was going on. Well, I am SO glad I did because not only did they have more of things that my Target had run out of, but they had new things that my Target didn’t have! I definitely had to budget myself but I got:
Today’s Activity Display
Alphabet Stamps for my Word Work Center
Time Flashcards and more Money Mats (my Target only had 1)
Pretty Magazine File Holders
Then, later in the day my husband and I popped into TJ MAXX to look at some things for the house. So, you know I had to look in the children’s section, which I think semi-annoyed my husband who didn’t expect me to go teacher-y in TJ MAXX. Anyway I’m glad I did because I found two Scholastic DVD’s.
One is all Maurice Sendak and includes videos of Where the Wild Things Are
and two of his other books as well as an About the Author video. The second DVD I got has videos of well-known folk tale books like Strega Nona
, Stone Soup
, and Joseph Had a Little Overcoat
I am very excited about all of the things I found for my classroom but I am now taking a break from shopping until I can get into my classroom and take inventory. You see, I am moving into the room where I did my student teaching, my cooperating teacher is transferring to a different school and teaching a younger grade. Although I will miss her greatly she left me a lot of things that I will be able to use; such as half of her classroom library, math games, language games, 30+ whiteboards, 25+ clipboards, a pile of construction paper, boxes of dry erase markers, office supplies, and a lot of manipulatives and other items. Since I don’t know exactly everything I will be inheriting I plan on not buying anything else until I am able to get into the classroom and make sure I am not buying doubles.
I have enjoyed seeing all of your purchases throughout this linky party and finding some new blogs!
