Cleaning Out? I’m Your Taker

I am trying to get my stations in full swing.  We will be doing stations during Guided Reading.  These stations will change in order to keep the interest level high.  The students love them and so much learning is involved..  Learning can be fun!  If you have any of these items that you would like to contribute, please feel free.  I know sometimes we clean out and are amazed at items we have stockpiled.  If you are cleaning out, I am your taker.  😉  I will take any of these items off your hands.  If you choose to buy any of these items (absolutely no obligations), most items can be found at Dollar Tree.


Paper Plates (the white cheap ones…new, please)

Dixie Cups (new)


Pipe Cleaners

Popsicle Sticks

Velcro dots or velcro strips

Index cards

Scotch tape


Little foam balls

Pom Poms (not the cheerleading kind…lol)

Coffee filters

Straws (new)

Q-Tips (new)

Playing Cards (just the basic, please)

Rubber bands

Small white foam cups (new)

Toilet paper/Paper towel tubes

Masking tape

Matchbox cars (does not have to be Matchbox…just that size)

Googly eyes



Cups (plastic in a package)

Cotton balls

Styrofoam bowls

Plastic spoons

Plastic wrap

Foil sheets

Elmers glue

Any kind of building blocks

I could always use white or colored cardstock.


Teacher friends:  If you have any pattern blocks, unifix cubes, or the little square blocks that you are cleaning out, I will gladly take them.


Again, do not feel obligated!  This is most definitely optional.


Mistake on Vocabulary Page

There was a mistake on the vocabulary page. The definitions for living and nonliving were incorrect. Please use these definitions instead:

Students were given a new page that these words were on and they highlighted the words.  This list went in the hands of several adults and what do you know…no one saw the mistakes until after they were handed out to the students.  Adults are human and make mistakes.  (I know, I was shocked as well).  Hehe!

Have a great day!
