I took a little road trip with hubby to a nearby town with a Walmart, and just look at what I found!
These little babies were under a dollar! Now, what to do with them? Well, that’s easy. I will be loading them for extra practice writing friends’ names, writing the alphabet correctly, writing sight words and more!
And here is a free template for creating your own
student name book to practice friends’ names! There are 24 pages that can be loaded front and back in these little albums, and the plastic protector is slick (as opposed to textured). Dry-erase markers will wipe off sooo easily! Love this because I use the slick sheet protectors for my name toolkits too!
What else did I find, did you ask? Well…ta-dahhhhh! This beautiful chevron tote! No, I did not find this at Wally-world, but I did find it at one of my favorite clothing merchants: Cato Fashions!
This cute bag was under $20, and it is purr-fect for my 17″ laptop computer! I have been cripling along with a bag that I bought three years ago. I acutally had punched new holes for the snap clips on the shoulder strap just to be able to carry it back and forth the school. Yes, I take my laptop every day. I am so paranoid about needing a file that may not be on my school computer. We live in a rural area with slow internet, so Dropbox and other online storage are not a fast option for me. Love this tote!
Here is my FREEBIE for this post: Our school uses Journeys, but the poems are not available for our smartboard. I typed a bigger version of them. Feel free to use if you are in need of these.
I love comments! Let me know how you use mini-photo albums! I am so excited to add these to our writing centers.
