I ventured out into the Houston traffic to go to Ikea today. I'm very proud of myself because I stuck to getting the three things that I went for:
magazine files to use as individual reading boxes
($1.99 for 5)
black and white polka dot rug
Our building has been under construction for a couple of years. We have big carpets from Lakeshore but some of them are so old and dirty...plus with the moving they keep disappearing. So I need this rug. Fingers crossed the fire marshall doesn't say anything. Last year, his focus was on removing couches, things hanging from the ceiling, and no bulletin boards in the hallway. Hopefully he just sticks with that.
cute little stools
($5.99 a piece)
I get new furniture in my room this year which is cool. However, all they ordered is 22 desks, 22 chairs, 2 tables, a teacher desk, and a filing cabinet. That is not enough tables or chairs for me! The new furniture is gray and black...so the older furniture would look ridiculous mixed in, plus they took it all away anyway.
Do you all know about the "Format Painter" tool in Power Point? I didn't, until my husband showed me yesterday and now I feel like an idiot. I can't be the only one who didn't know, right? It basically is a really easy way to change the fill/color/style of shapes or fonts to match across slides without changing each slide or shape individually. If others don't know either, I will put up a tutorial one day.
Since I was able to change colors so easily, I went word wall crazy yesterday and created 17 different colors of my Dolch word wall. Each word wall includes 26 alphabet headers, matching word cards for the 220 Dolch words plus the 95 nouns, and an editable page to add additional words. Check out all my colors below!
I am putting them ALL on sale for just $1 now through Sunday evening! Click the color of your choosing to find the product.
