Dollar tree find


I just can't help myself..everytime that I go to Dollar Tree, I come up with another idea for my centers....I found these alphabet beads with some lacing cord... I just typed up our spelling list and BAM!!!! I have a literacy center made in 5 minutes!
Funny thing is...I went in to the Dollar Tree just to get picture frames lol
Just stop by your local Dollar Tree and you can't imagine all of the things that you can use in your classroom.  The best part is that it is only $1.00 a piece and that is great for a frugal teacher like I am!

The Best iPad apps for kids

Click on the picture to send you to the form!

I have been presenting at many technology conferences in the past 3 years and I have found that these are the best apps that I have found effective in my classroom with my firsties.  They might not work for all students but I wanted to share what I have compiled.  I am attaching my sheet of apps and you are more than welcome to share these with other teachers as well!
I hope that you have a wonderful school year, mine has just begun.  I am exhausted (I'm not going to lie) but I am already loving my new class.

Another Office Depot Haul

Another Sunday Office Depot haul.. All of this for $8.00!!! 
First of all, make sure that you have a Teacher Star reward card from Office depot.  You have to spend $5.00 minimum but it is so worth going.  Every teacher loves Ticonderoga pencils.  I grade with markers so the Crayola markers were a big deal.  They were .25 and some of the other items were .01.  The pencils and the reinforced looseleaf paper were $1.00 but it was still a great deal!
