Targetaholic Here and Great Giveaways!!

Happy Friday! It doesn't quite have the same meaning as it does during the school year. Anyhow, I have to make a confession. I am a Targetaholic. Target was one of my stops two days ago and I picked up some great things.
The white boards and file folders were in the dollar section. The white boards are for my students to practice cursive during Work on Writing. I picked up two packs of the file folders. There are 3 in each one. I haven't quite thought of how I want to use them just yet. The best deal - the post its for 30 cents. I picked up about 8 of them. I hit another Target today and they were one dollar. Guess where I will be going next time? I also picked up spiral notebooks for 17 cents. At the Target I hit today, I picked up cute monster snack bags in the dollar section. They will be great for my students to hold their Isham Bucks.

I have been dreading going back to my laptop. I started long range reading plans two days ago and got five weeks done. They were so detailed with assessments and read alouds. Somehow I lost the document. I think I deleted the wrong thing off my flash drive and now I can't get it back. It made me want to cry so back to the drawing board I go.

I'm super excited about my theme for this year. Last year I got a lot of Dots on Turquoise goodies from Creative Teaching Press. I was already going to order stuff and then I won a contest where I got about $50 in free stuff. My husband made some goodies for me and painted them in the same theme. I used a sweets theme since it went with the dots on turquoise. This year I am going to use a sweets theme as well. My room is going to be based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, one of my favorite books. It will be Mrs. Isham's Learning Factory. I found wonderful clip art and I can't wait to get started. I bought yellow raffle tickets from Oriental Trading to use in addition to my Isham Bucks. 

As we near the end of July I realize that my time is running out. I have so much to do and do not know where to start. My cute little munchkin decided to take a short nap so I can not get everything done like I wanted to. My wonderful husband is in the garage finishing up the table for her room. Then he is going to make a small white board easel for my guided reading table. He is also going to make a Writing workstation. Gotta love him! :)

I found two awesome giveaways that I wanted to share before I go. Joy in the Journey is celebrating a Blogiversary. Anyone that comments today gets a packet of goodies. You could also win a great sharpener. Be sure to head that way!!  Hunter's Tales from Teaching is also having a giveaway. You can win the quietest classroom sharpener,  an Applebees gift card, a fun package of classroom supplies, and two things from her TPT store. Good luck!

Have a great day!
