Summer Purchases Linky with Ladybug's Teacher Files

My first summer purchase was from Oriental Trading Company.  I wanted to add to my Daily 5 Word Work choices.  So I got these nearly perfect itty, bitty boggle games. They are officially called "Letter Games".  I spent a whopping $2.99 per dozen! 

I plan to go over to Really Good Stuff and go crazy, but I have been trying to keep under control until at least July.  I am eyeing the letter stones for Word Work,  are you noticing a theme??

I am also counting the minutes until Target switches over from outdoor furniture to
SCHOOL SUPPLIES!!!  I know I must sound sick, but I just love going to Target and getting new crayons.  The students at my school don't typically bring supplies.  In order to make sure they have all that they need, I go shopping!  I save up all my Target gift cards and my 5% prescription discount reward and SHOP!!!  I seriously can't wait!

Happy Summer!

  5. My heart speeds up a beat when Target trucks in their Back To School SALE. I must admit that my initial feeling is panic (school can't be starting up again already), but then I get over myself and the horror turns to utter excitement. I HEART school supplies!! Glad I found you today.
