A Great Find

I am enjoying my day off for MLK day!  I am using it to work of course, but I am taking a little time out for fun and creativity.  The girls and I went to visit my mom this weekend and I went on a treasure hunt in my local Dollar Tree and found a few fantastic finds!

For the classroom I found great sets of accents in the teaching area.  There were bees/honey pots, frogs/lilly pads, and mice/cheese. I can't wait to use these for some great quick centers.  The possibilities are endless with these.

I also found the best reusable coffee mugs ever for just $1!  I am not planning on using these in the classrooms, but for great little appreciation gifts.  I can use them for my volunteers, children's teachers or just anyone who deserves an extra special thank you.  I bought a few cups, made a few tags to add to them and voila!  I can give them just as they are or slide a coffee gift card in the cup.  Click here to grab the tags free!

I am working today to finish up my Common Core Number Sense Unit.  We are teaching the Common Core, but our county series is for the old series.  I really didn't think going from 100 to 120 would be a big deal, but wow!!!  I seriously think they though 100 was the biggest number in the world and numbers ended at 100!  I hope to have it posted tomorrow and of course several pages as a free preview!  I think I will even send out a few free copies of the unit.  Check back tomorrow!
