Giveaway Countdown and a Find!

Tomorrow night (Wed)  I will pick the lucky winner of a YEAR subscription to Scholastic News. Have you entered yet? If not, click {HERE} to go enter, QUICK!

It is report card and conferencing week here so I haven't had much time for creating/blogging. I posted my St. Patrick's Day stuff early. Maybe you haven't grabbed your FREE ABC order center activity yet? Over 1,500 people have so far. Wow, that is CRAZY!

The only new thing I have for you tonight is my Dollar Tree find....
What do you use to take home the zillions of papers you need to grade? I had been using an expanding file, thinking I would like the different papers organized. However, the reality is first graders don't fold those math newspapers exactly in half so it was a pain to get them to fit in the pockets. Also, I am always rushing off to get my kids to practice, etc so I really just need a quick, safe place to put the stack.

 Viola! $1 at the Dollar Tree. All different colors. I was feeling the purple.

 Look at how big that pocket extends!!! The sides are fabric so it easily folds flat and it is light weight.  I may need to go back and pick up a few more... Tell me I'm not to only one who gets excited about office supplies?!
