Saturday: Sweet Deals at the Dollar Spot

I'm baaaaack!  (I've always wanted to say that!)  Told you I wouldn't be long.  :)  Here's some of the great things I found at the Target Dollar Spot.  They really should just rename that place to be the Teacher Spot!

Stacking Boats & Fisherman Pails
Stacking boats for our transportation water table!  Fisherman pails for our fishing for letters game!  They've also got the pails in a TON of other colors, including cute Valentine's Day ones and primary colors.  I use the primary colored ones to hold supplies for our color-coded table groups.

Double-Sided Dry Erase Boards
Glad I found some more of these, I needed to restock a bit!  :)  And of course they have the dry erase markers, and the mini magnetic dry erasers which are absolutely amazing.

Pretend Play Money & Coins
I have been looking FOREVER for pretend play money and coins that's not ridiculously expensive, and here it is!  Yay!

Valentine's Scrapbook Paper
I love using their scrapbooking paper to spice up the writing center!

Assortment of Items for Valentine's Day Centers
Not sure how I'm going to use all these yet, but I'll figure it out.  I love the funky foam heart sunglasses and the pink dice!  I also love the mailboxes but I am bummed that they only had red.  Last year Target had at least four different colors.  I KNEW I should have pounced on them (even though I didn't have a classroom, and we were living in a cramped apartment...)!

Stickers and Sticky Notes
Yay for cute glitter stickers and sticky notes!  I bought cute cupcake sticky notes for all my coworkers for Valentine's Day.  I LOVE these glitter stickers, going to use them to spice up our handwriting letter racers if my foam cubes ever get here in the mail.

Don't forget to enter my transportation unit giveaway!  Today is the last day to comment on the blog post to be entered to win.  I will be picking the winner tomorrow!  :)  I just revised my transportation unit to include a 2-D shape memory game, more rhyming trains and the fishing for letters/letter sound activity, plus some other revisions.  Good luck!
