I hauled my boys to Michael’s (that’s an hour trip from my house by the way, no short trip) so we could pick up some goodies and found these little wooden insects that are going to work great for my lunch choice board. I also found monkeys for my behavior management ‘monkey tree’ too. I know you’re thinking ‘huh?’ I promise, I’ll show you when I’m done. Trust me! They’re perfect and so darn cute. And…most importantly, I survived with three boys in Michael’s.
They were so good for me, in fact, that I bagged all the other shopping I needed to do and decided on an impromptu trip to the children’s museum. We rocked the water table. I love this thing. I just need to figure out how I can get one in my kinder room. Hmmmm….

Brittany Leathers says
AHH I LOVE TOTES! 😀 I am a first year teacher, and I have already started my collection! They are so useful! 😀

Amen to storage container overload!!! I moved this year, and it took SEVERALlarge uhaul boxes to pack all my totes. Even still, I can’t help myself from buying new ones. It’s definitely an addiction =)

Totes are so addicting!! I love the color theme of yours, too!
I have a very similar stack and I just bought some more!! It is truly addictive.
Sherry Lumpkin says
How many of those lovely totes do you have???? 🙂

Lol, I bought some really cute baskets last weekend and I haven’t decided what I’m using them for yet so I put them in my empty sand table and covered them up so no one can see my addiction.

I have a pretty identical collection and I just purchased some more!! It is truly obsessive.

Lol when I saw your container collection I instantly wanted some of the shapes and colours even though I don’t need any! Must be an addition of distinction I think!

I have a huge collection as well! I saw your bins for organizing your themes ans was at a target today. I had 4 of them in my cart. I put them back….I have so many already. I will use what I have.
Please post more on your daily 5! I did daily 5 last year, and my Work Work was not strong. I purchased $100 of your items to make it better and can’t wait to use them! I really love your blog as well. Very excited to get it up and running ( that is the hard part!)
