I just wanted to show you how much stuff I was able to get for less than $40. You heard me right. Less than $40!!
Here's the haul breakdown:
30 composition notebooks (50 cents each at Wal Mart)
30 pocket folders, with prongs (15 cents each at Wal Mart)
6 baskets (Dollar Tree)
10 plastic shoebox containers with lids (Dollar Tree)
The composition notebooks will be for interactive notebooks for math, something new I am trying this year. The folders will be for vocabulary words. The baskets hold extra supplies for students like markers, pens, pencils, etc. (Utah doesn't require families to provide supplies for their children, so I like to have extra materials on hand for those kids who don't or can't bring their own stuff.) The shoebox containers now hold my math manipulatives. That was a task and a half getting those things organized!
I will be purchasing more things for school, I am just waiting on some extra funds that should arrive next week. I want to buy more pocket folders and composition notebooks, plus whiteboard markers, Post-its, microfiber cloths for the class iPads....the list goes on and on.
