A new classroom organizer for only $15!!! These things usually cost $50 +
I got a ton of books for 25 cents each! And these people are so nice, because a lot of them cut me a deal when I tell them I'm a school teacher. God knows that I buy a lot of books and any deal helps!
And last but not least I bought these adorable tote bags for 50 cents each so that I can use them for "Book Buddies"
Book buddies is a great idea that I got from Amy Lemon's Blog. Each Monday, you send a kid home with a book buddy bag. Inside there is are a bunch of books - all different levels - so you can get your kiddos to read more at home and hopefully with their parents or siblings. Amy also made these super cute bookmarks that are in each bag.
and a book buddy check out list.
As soon as I get the chance I'm going to sew labels onto the book buddy bags so it says "Mrs. Nelson's Book Buddies"
