Ahhhh, Target how do I love thee, let me count the ways!
Let's begin with the mini magnetic dry erase erasers. They are 2 to a package, so I bought 12 packages! (This is my middle daughter, a future teacher, holding up the goodies.)
On to my f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e section of the store, you know where I'm talking about.... the school supplies! I found colored composition notebooks, so I bought 25 blue ones and middle daughter bought 25 green ones. My Target has a limit of 25 on items, oh no! I should have brought daughter three to help too, there's always next time.
I went crazy for dry erase markers. Expo makers were on sale 4 for $2.50. I don't know about you, but my kids NEVER bring dry erase markers. I think it's because they are expensive, and parents don't realize how much we use them. I bought 8 packages. Four packages in traditional colors and four packages in cool, hip colors. I stopped by Michael's on the way home, because I was so excited to try out a Pinterest inspired project. Yep, I hot glued a pom pom onto the top for an instant eraser! (I guess my theme for the day was erasers.)
I debated on buying crayons, but decided I would try to wait until I got my classroom budget. In the past our principal has given us $100 to spend on our classroom. I am praying that we will still get some money. Kansas is having some serious education finance issues, so I would be sad to see the money for our classrooms disappear. I am curious, do other principals give out money for teachers to spend on classrooms? How much?
Have a super day!
