What does all of that have to do with this blog?! Since I didn't have anyone fussing over how much time I spent in each aisle, I got to peruse all the clearance items at my leisure. And guess what I found??
I also hit Staples for their sale - $3 for a set of 10 Sharpies and $1 for a set of 5 dry-erase markers as well as 5 cent folders! I picked up some cute new pencils for my students too, to go along with the super sweet New Year flags from Denise over at Sunny Days in Second Grade.
I go back to school on Tuesday so tonight and tomorrow I will be cutting and laminating my little heart out to make sure I have everything ready to go for Tuesday morning - I'm going to try to stay more organized this year! I have been trying to think of my One Little Word - Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade first introduced me to the concept and since then Holly from CrissCross Applesauce in First Grade has been keeping it at the forefront of my thoughts. I love the idea but I haven't found a word that speaks to me yet. Is it normal for this to take so long?!
I finally got my Penguin Math Unit posted over at TPT now too. Now that I have a few things in my store I feel better about participating in the Ring of Bloggy giveaways! There's still time to enter for a chance to win, just click here!
I'm going to close this out with a collage of my kids enjoying our New Years celebration - as much as I had to get away from them today I really do love them to pieces!
