Amanda and I wanted to share some GREAT Dollar Tree goodies that we are using in our classrooms! I thought it would be fun to link this up to our friend Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried it Tuesday linky to show you what we've bought and tried. :)
I went yesterday, and found some adorable window clings...well, I thought I would try them on the whiteboard rather than the windows and I LOVE how it created such cute and quick borders!!! COLORFUL and CHEAP!!!
Then, I found the most ADORABLE stickers ever! Well if you like pets!!! :) Now, I could just put these on my students' papers...BUT....I thought why not try them with a writing lesson! So, each student will get one sticker and one piece of white paper. Then, they create a picture focusing on the setting where the animal lives. Finally, they will write a narrative and pay close attention to describing the setting. They love getting to draw about what they write so now they get to write about what they draw! :)
Have a great day!
