It's going to rain Friday. I wish I could make the most of a rainy day and get in my classroom. Not happening. I have to wait until Monday. But, I am so in back-to-school mode! Today, I went to Ikea to purchase these magazine storage boxes. How cute are they?
I'm going to use them as book boxes for my friends. They can store their books for reader's workshop in them. I'm going to put their names on the front and keep them on a bookshelf with their reading binder. I have these cute little book cut-outs that I think I'm going to use to label them with my friend's names. They were a great deal. 4 boxes for $2.99. They even have plain white ones that are 5 for $1.99. What can I say? I'm all about the cute! ;-) Originally, I wanted to get the plastic tubs for their durability, but the dollar stores around me just didn't have them this year and I couldn't bring myself to pay top dollar at the teacher's store.
Here's a blurb from Amazon.com about this book:
