Hello dear reader!
I’ve been working hard in my room this week. I’m getting closer and closer to that finish line…I’ve got some furniture in there that needs to be removed and I’m refusing to take any pictures of my classroom until it is at 100%! I’m neurotic like that.
So….my shopping addiction has led me to a bad bad bad place. At my
new school we get $250 to spend on anything we want for the classroom! I
know…stop drooling. I labored over what I should purchase…centers
from Lakeshore, some technology, classroom supplies? WHAT?! I quickly
realized that my classroom is missing a teacher cart. You know…those
dry erase board/chart boards that we have sitting beside us during our
read alouds? What we use during shared writing and other activities…I
didn’t have one! I could totally use the money on that…OR I could
buy one myself and still have $250 to spend. I’m such a shopaholic. I
bought my very own teacher cart. Here it is:
It’s not too fancy…But I love the bit in the back…to store all my poems and anchor charts! I’m excited…it should be here by Friday. Now….what to spend my $250 on? Any suggestions?
I thought I’d share some things with you that I made for my classroom. A lot of it was last minute. You know the “Oh! I should totally make a sign that says ____” moments. I had a lot of those this week.
So Miss Kindergarten posted this awesome birthday bulletin board idea. You can check it out here. I took it upon myself to make my very own…not as cute or awesome but close! I don’t have a digital copy of anything because I drew the cupcake and candles myself..but you can purchase a set from Miss Kindergarten! BONUS..hers comes with the banner too! Here’s my birthday cupcake board:
