Made4Math - Dollar Tree Find
I'm cheap. Actually, I take that back... I'm frugal :) And as a frugal person, one of my favorite stores is Dollar Tree! As I wander the aisles of Dollar Tree, I am constantly thinking of "How could I use this in my classroom?"
So this weekend, hubs and I were out shopping and I find a plastic basket on the floor of my local Dollar Tree and I immediately think... "HEY!!! I NEED THAT!!!" :)
Let's backtrack a bit...
This year I have been using Interactive Notebooks in my classes. I *big puffy heart love* them! My students love them. The parents love them. What I don't love though, is the paper. LOTS of paper. And students that don't know how to use glue/tape appropriately to adhere said paper.
Cue the music for the entrance of the "spare handouts" basket.
I am tired of kids asking me "Miss, do you have an extra _____?"
My answer (starting tomorrow)... "No clue! Go check the Extra Handouts Basket!"
Big Puffy Hearts to Dollar Tree!!! :) :)
