Summer Shopping

***Edit, I am linking up with  Ladybug's Teacher Files for her Summer Shopping Linky party ( I've been secretly hoping she would have one for July so I could join in!) Please go link up with her and share all of your great summer finds!***

So I don't know about the rest of you, but I have a serious addiction to buying school stuff! Anytime I am in Target I am looking for stuff for my classroom! I love when they bring their teaching stuff into the dollar section! Its like Christmas in July! :) Here are a few of my finds that I will be using in my classroom this fall!

Cards and dice to add in my math centers (there are SO many ways to use cards and dice to reinforce math skills!) I also found a two pack of classic games (Crazy 8s and Memory) I figure that these will make a great addition to our indoor recess/fun Friday activity bucket. And then I found these story cubes! I am so excited to use those in my writing center! I think the kids will love them!

Found these at Lakeshore. I will be using them in centers, guided reading and tutoring. The Beat the Clock games were on the clearance table and I got them for $5 a piece! :D

I'm sure you have seen these new Black and White borders! I absolutely love them! I am going to add them to my classroom. I am going for a color scheme of light blue and green, black and white with a little bit of yellow.  :)

Wow, sorry this picture came out so blurry (it was late last night when I was taking these pics). These are my first few teacher stuff finds from the Dollar Section at Target! A few pocket charts, frog and star erasers, super star reader bookmarks ( I bought a similar one last year and I gave them to my kids in guided reading groups halfway through the year-- they thought they were SO cool! :)), and isn't that little frog notepad ADORABLE?! I couldn't resist him!

Found these all marked 70% off in the dollar section. I figured they would make great prizes for 30 cents a piece!

Finally, these were also 30 cent finds. They were so cute, I figured for 30 cents that I could find a place for them! We are getting ready to move into our Brand New House ( I cannot wait for it to be done!) and I thought I would use these somewhere in the house :)

What great finds have you found this summer?
