Dollar Spot Finds


I live about 90 miles from the nearest Target.  Last Friday I made a point to run by when in town.  It amazes me how chalkboards are everywhere! 

My first years of teaching, I had chalkboards…then overhead projectors with transparencies.  Does anyone remember how stinky green overhead markers were?  Like, soured stinky.  I remember once standing at the overhead, writing out an example and thinking, “Shew. Someone’s got stinky feet.”  Only to realize it was the GREEN marker!

So back to my find…


5 x 7 chalkboard clipboards from Target Dollar Spot.  I added ribbon for my color-coded classes.  I haven’t decided quite yet exactly how these will be used.

Maybe a student of the week display?  Or monthly birthdays in each class?

Hmm. What ideas would you suggest?
