Top 10 Dollar Tree **FINDS**


I'm changing my theme this year to Robots.  I think it fits my STEM focus.

I decided on a color theme of turquoise and red with some lime thrown in.  I'm including lime because I've had a blue and green classroom for 4 years, but I don't want it to look Christmas-y.

While I was @ Dollar Tree today, I kept thinking of different ways that teachers could use these items in their classroom. I snapped some pics and thought I'd share them with you.

If you have iPads, tablets or computers 
there are days that you'll need earbuds.

 Every teacher needs caddies!

Do your kiddos call sanitizer "hanitizer"?
In September you probably have too many bottles, but in March I PROMISE you'll open your cabinet and it will be EMPTY.  UGH. 

My daughter's school supply list asked for sandwich size baggies, quart size baggies and gallon sized baggies.  At the grocery store it would easily be $9!  $3 is much better.  
I always run out of gallon sized baggies, am I the only one?

This was a new find at my Dollar Tree!  A stylus for $1!  Wow! 
 And we have tablets with covers, but if you need one,

Tissue is another thing that I never have enough of.  I was honestly shocked to find this at Dollar Tree.  The great news, they even have aloe in them so they aren't rough and scratchy!

I saw these stickers and they were about 3" & I thought someone out in bloggie world would love them!

I rarely use pencil pouches to store pencils, 
but I use them ALL the time!  
I normally keep paper clips, clothes pins or yarn in them.

If you hoard containers, raise your hand!  
Yes, I raised my hand.
The entire reason I went to Dollar Tree was
to buy red & turquoise containers.

Last, but not least is wall stickers.  I saw the Monsters & thought that any one using ClassDojo would like those!  A few years ago, I was in a classroom that had patchy paint.  It looked like the previous teacher used cheap wall hooks for her keys or something near the light switch.  I ended up putting birdie and flower wall stickers over the holes. 

This Little Piggy wants to know what is your favorite item from Dollar Tree.

I use the pencil pouches for math kits. Dice, chips, 50 chart etc. Now I found dry erase sentence strips small enough to go in the pencil pouch. Now I am making writing toolkits! LOVE dollar tree.

I always forget they have ear buds!! Thanks for the reminder. Might as well get them for $1. They are a dime a dozen! Great post!

I got a ton of items because I am moving grade levels and schools! It was so helpful to my budget! Baskets for my library were the biggest buy.
