Seuss Stuff at Target

My daughter and I had a fun girl's day this week.
Complete with pedicures, haircuts, lunch, shopping, and many, many laughs. 

Our last stop was at our favorite store:

I am 99% Target has hired a retired teacher to choose items to display in their Dollar Spot. 
There are always so many things that are cute, practical and $1!!!

Just thought I would share my great finds this week:
(silly bands, stickers, erasers, cute bags, number cards to play memory)

Seuss in July, yes indeed!

Kindergarten Corner

Please check out my Kindergarten Corner ... as I have recently added several new games and websites. 
(Last Spring I created this section so that my students had easy access to learning games while using the computers in our classroom or at home. It has been a HUGE hit!) 

I can't wait to share these with my new students this fall. 

You can click on the picture below or always access it by clicking on the Kindergarten Corner tab above.
