Target Goodies & Terrific Giveaways

This has been a busy, busy week!  I told you before that my hubby's birthday was Wednesday so I've been baking and made him the dinner he wanted for his special day!  {Don't forget to download your birthday postcard freebies!}  He opened most of his gifts from me and the gift from his parents on his birthday, and yesterday we visited my mom (who just got back in town) and dad, and he opened his gifts from them and the rest from me!
All the smoke from the candles cracks me up!

I FINALLY surprised him!
My big gift for him was the new iPhone 4s and a lifeproof case!

His favorite gift from my mom - a new dirt bike helmet!

Target Goodies

{From the Dollar Spot, of course!}

Unfortunately {or maybe fortunately =)} my closest target is well over an hour away, so I'm not there often, and I can't run out to grab all of the great things everyone blogs about...BUT, my mom was working out of town this week and I sent her to the dollar spot!  As she browsed I asked question after question about the things she told me they had so I could make my choices!  Yes, I have the best mother ever! 

So this is what I ended up with...2 cute paper trays, 4 pocket charts (no plans for most of them...but they were only $1), 3 - 5 minute Quick Quizzes for multiplication, and 7 great chapter books!  I'm so excited about the chapter books!  There's a variety of classic titles that my readers will love!  The Quick Quizzes will be used for math centers or fast finishers.  I will either laminate them or the kiddos will put them into the DIY Dry Erase Boards I made! 


Terrific Giveaways Going on Now

{Some are ending soon!  Hurry on over to enter!}

Teacher Created Resources is having a back to school giveaway where you could win an iPad!!

Check back soon {hopefully =)} for my thoughts on The Daily 5, Chapter 5 (I'm a little behind...)!  And I'll soon be in need of some more proof readers for my other "parts of speech" scoot games!  Be on the lookout if you're interested in a free copy!  

What great finds have you come across at Target (or anywhere else) for the coming school year?

  2. Thanks for spreading the word about my giveaway. I was at the dollar spot at Target a few days ago and saw the quick quizzes but didn't grab them. I love the idea of laminating them so they can be used as a center! Unlike you I live about 4 minutes (driveway to parking space) from my Target so I may have to hop back over and buy those!

    1. No problem! I actually got the idea to laminate the quick quizzes from Christina Bainbridge...she bought some quick quizzes (spelling or grammar maybe) and is going to use them for word work in her classes!

  3. Thank you! The closest Target to me is between 30-45 minutes depending on Traffic, so I feel your pain. I don't get over there often either:( I need to go soon though and check out all of these deals!
