Fabulous Summer Finds...

Lots of giggles for the Classroom Shopping Linky Party comments by Ladybug's Teacher Files. I've enjoyed checking out everyone's shopping treasures for the summer. Luckily I've managed to grab a few of my own. And of course, these items did require quite a bit of digging!

The first find was on a trip to Garden Ridge with my first grade team. We made sure to check through ALL of the book tables before we decided to move on.  About 3 deep on the LAST table, I spotted this little treasure! I'm a huge fan of Tori and have wanted to check out her children's book for some time.  To think, I almost paid full price for this just 3 weeks ago.  The illustrations are adorable and the story teaches a valuable lesson about the importance of just being yourself. Can't wait to share with my firsties!
The next was actually spotted by one of my new teammates (love her!) at Half Priced Books, after I told her how excited I was to do Abby's Wizard of Oz Unit this year. However, I did have to go and scavenger for my own copy! Finally found it! Lovin the price ($2.98) AND it's just the right amount of text for a first grade read aloud. To top it off...I'm going to see Wicked in London next week! Fabulous!!

Make sure that you check out the linky party to see everyone's loot! Great idea Kristen.
