While we were in the area, we HAD to go to Target. (Who doesn't love Target???) I found two adorable little buckets in the $1 bin (don't you love that section?). I got a red and a green.
I plan to use them to change the way we do pencils. Is there anyone else out there who let's the situation with sharpening pencils get on your ever-loving last nerve??? This year, I will go back to having FULL control over the pencils. Yep, I'm one of those who likes to have ultimate control. I plan on having sharpened pencils in the green bucket. When students break a pencil, rather than digging in their crayonbox for a new pencil or for their pencil sharpener, they will simply walk quietly over and place the broken one in the red bucket and grab a sharpened pencil in the green bucket. In my perfect little world (that I see in my mind...hahaha) this is going to be a WONDERFUL plan! :-)
AND, my cat was very happy with the Target bag. She LOVES playing with plastic bags for some reason. I guess it's the sound the bags make.
Don't forget that I just took the plunge and opened up a store on Teacher's Notebook. I'm running a GRAND OPENING special of 1/2 off everything in my store. Click on the banner below to go browse around. This will be the ONLY time I discount my products so much. The sale will last until Saturday. I am adding new products daily, so keep checking it out.
