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?!



  1. I am so glad/lucky that fun office supplies, stickers and glitter are a MUST for our profession! What would we do without them!

  4. I love Staples. Just going in and looking at all the neat stuff I could uses gets me so excited. To find great office stuff at The Dollar Tree is a great score!!!

  5. I absolutely love shopping for office supplies. It is probably tied at the top of my list with shopping for clothes, and I love shopping for clothes. Luckily, most office supplies are cheaper. There is nothing better than opening a new pack of markers, crayons, sticky notes, etc.!


  6. I love Office Supplies!!! I just went to Staples this weekend for a cute binder (small), dividers, highlighters, labels, etc for my daily devotional stuff. I was so happy getting it all organized. And it's CUTE. :)
    PS I saw the enVision tests you have to grade. Yuck. I have some I should be grading tonight.

  7. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who grades with highlighters! (and leaves them in the pack!!)
