Friday Finds, Award

Look what I found!
My classroom theme is Space. So I love it when I find things like aliens, robots, etc. The sandwich bags will be used for the first day gifts. The green and blue lunch bags will hold task cards. The dry erase writing strips will be used for cursive writing practice. (These all came from Target's dollar bins.) The large (10 x 13) vinyl zipper bags (from Big Lots) will hold some of my larger centers.

Tracey from Third Grade All Stars and Julie from The Hip Teacher have given me the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you both! Now I need to get busy and meet the demands of this award.
