I did find 4 books to add to my classroom library. Actually 3 books, I bought one for my colleague across the hall. I found" Stellaluna". I already have a copy, but its always nice to have an extra one for the students to use. I also found "Matthew's Dream" by Leo Lionni. I didn't have this book, but I thought it would be a great one to add to my collection. The 3rd book that I found was "Armadillo Rodeo" by Jan Brett. Scholastic accidentally sent me a tape for this book but I didn't have it. So now this is a book I can put in my listening center during my Jan Brett author study. The last book I bought was "The Jolly Christmas Postman". It was only $4. Even though I already own the book, I couldn't pass up the bargain. My students love it when I read it to them at Christmas time. I am going to give it to the 1st/2nd grade teacher across the hall. I thought it would be a great way for her to begin a letter writing unit.
Here is a picture of all of my books:
I also went to the container store. Even though I wasn't able to find a box to use for my treasure chest, I did find another box.
Here it is:
I am hoping to use it to make a light box for my classroom. I saw a post on another blog about putting lights in a box with a clear lid. Hopefully, I can start making it this week. I will let you know how it works.
Thanks for stopping by.
