Can't teach without linky party

Mrs Lamb at Views from Room 205 is hosting a linky party for things you could not teach without! Head on over and see what everyone can't teach with out :) There's a lot of things i wouldn't like to teach with out but i will just pick a few!

 Bic Mark It's! I need these all day everyday, these are the best permanent markers EVER...better than Sharpies in my opinion & the colors are amazing!
 Love, flair pens and all the pretty colors!
Need this to function :P Although I've really been trying to ween myself off of it (as i drink one right now!) 

Love my easel, it' s great for group time & the kids love
it too! 
I love my iphone 4, there's so many awesome
applications that are great for the classroom.

& my laptop! this sweet baby helps me out so much & holds TONS of my resources! 

What things can't you teach without? Head on over to Mrs. Lamb's page and link up!

Oh Kohls how i love thee!

Every year I like to send a special class "pet" home with each of my students for a week or so throughout the school year. While the "pet" is home with a student they are to document their adventures with our class "pet" through pictures, drawings, movie tickets, restaurant menus and writing in a composition book. The “pets" I had last year were not my favorite choice so while at Kohls today I picked up some new class “pets” I'm so excited to share them with my students and hear all about their adventures with Clifford & T-bone. ( I have two pets because I teach AM & PM pre-k)

Dollar Store Love.

Who the heck let me step foot in the Dollar Tree?

Oh my word. I was in town today running some errands when I realized how close I was to the Dollar Tree. So I just had to make my way over there hoping to find a few goodies. Ok, so a few might have turned into a lot. (Proof below) I know my boyfriend is wondering where I’m going to store all of this until I can get back into my room. So if you haven’t been to the Dollar Tree yet get yourself over there pronto. I can’t wait to put all of this stuff to use in the classroom! Happy Thursday everyone!

p.s. Sorry for the crummy phone pictures.

Target Finds

Happy Friday Everyone! (all 2 following right now...hopefully we will get some more followers soon) If I haven't said it before i LOVE target, love, love love,love! Well i found some super cute deals at Target and I wanted to share with you, Target dollar spot is the first place i hit up when i come in and i never leave empty handed. Hopefully you will find something you would be interested in and can get over to target soon to grab yourself some.

I got some small pocket charts that will come in handy for centers or scheduling charts. The little cute line up here sign i got because it was cute and $1. below i got some more adorable pointers which i will use for big book reading, reading the classroom and maybe some games in the classroom where we go on hunts for things. I got some stamps and a to do list pad as well, mainly because they were cute and a teacher can't write enough to-do lists?? I also got some solid colored kitchen rugs that were on sale for 3.99 at my target that i thought I'd use around the room for comfy seating at centers. Have a wonderful Friday!!
