Ohio Adventure

Yesterday my WONDERFUL husband asked me if I would like to go to Rogers, Ohio to a big flea market. (My husband does not like yard sales, flea markets, or thrift shops but he went for me!)   I only found one school treasure there today.  It is a set of hot air balloon lights.  I have so many bulletin board ideas I could use with these balloons. 

I then wanted to stop at a Dollar Tree on our way back home.  The GPS showed the closest store was in Warren, OH.   I found so many school treasures there!

I found crayon banks.  My husband is going to drill little holes in each one and add hooks so I can hang them up in my classroom.

I also found little cones with the following sayings:  Great Job!, Superstar!, Good Work!, and Way To Go!    I may use them to place on desks of students who are on task and quiet.

I bought a wooden "Magic Wand" (which has so many possibilities), and 4 Clifford C.D.'s with music and coloring pages to print off. 

And lastly, I bought some window clings (top) and bulletin board sets (bottom).  All in all, it was a great day!

Ok, so here I go!  I have been following some blogs and decided to try it out for myself!  I cannot wait to be able to share my ideas with all the great teachers out there! 

The first blog I started following was Mrs. Tabb's.  You can see her blog here.  She has some great ideas including a shoe unit for back to school.  It looks amazing. 

I have a lot of exploring/learning to do here, so I will post this and get busy!
