Why teach Pre-K?

Because, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13

Because, I love it and am called to it!

Because I am me!

Newest Space Saver! Organization in small spaces on the cheap!

Hello All, In my neverending quest to fit just as much as I possibly can into my small amount of classroom storage I have found a new Favorite!!!!!!!
That's right 4x6 photo holders! Not only are they slimmer than the traditional pencil boxes but shorter and they stack nicely! I managed to fit a classic 8 set of fine tip crayola markers, a full set of crayola crayons, a few pencils, an eraser, scissors and a small gluestick. Everything my kiddos need at their desk, the only caveat is that traditional pencils are a little too long but once they are sharpened a couple of times they fit in just fine.
I can think of so many more uses: flash cards, dice games, counters storage, matching cards sets, the list goes on and on! I found these particular ones at Michaels which had them for $1.49 and 40% off plus the everyday teachers 15% discount=$.77 each!!!! Not only practical but cheap when you find them on sale. And I even bought a few extra just because I know I will find ways to use them! Till next time, Christine
