Here is what I have found so far (cause I am going back almost daily to make sure I'm not missing out on the Target teacher find of the year) and what I plan to do with it. Please share if you have any other ideas!
Plastic File Bins ($3 each):
I have found them in four colors: red, blue, yellow and white. I don't have any of the white because I had a teacher buddy with me and we had to share the wealth!
I use these files bins in two areas in my classroom - read-to-self book bins (left) and themed library bins (right). The details of the bin set-up and organization is something I'll tackle in another post.
Teacher's Tote ($3 each):
I also found these blue teacher totes with file storage! There is a black metal rectangle that you velcro on one side and the tote can be use to store or haul around files. It is multi-purpose!
I am going to use them as retell totes. My Kindergarteners LOVE to retell stories. I am thinking these totes will be great during Daily Five for students to retell with a partner and have the freedom to move around. I am planning on making labels that either clip or velcro on the sides so the kiddos can independently choose a retell and I can quickly change the labels when I switch out the retells for new ones.
Above is a quick example of the Mrs. Honey Hat retell tote. Inside is the Mrs. Honey doll, the velcro pieces to put on the hat and the book in case the students need to reference it. Everything in one place and portable - LOVE it!
Well those are two of my Target finds so far. I will share more tomorrow! Happy Target hunting!
