googly eyes galore..........
I hit the jackpot of google eyes this past weekend. I got a few bags from Target at the dollar bin and a few more from the dollar store. As a preschool teacher I LOVE googly eyes, the big ones to be more specific. So here is the breakdown. The Target ones had 50 eyes, four different sizes. The be honest the little little ones have never been used and I am sure that unless I do a craft with them they will never be used, in the plus side they are the sticker ones but then again I found out this summer that it is extremely difficult for some people to peel them (lol). The ones from the Dollar tree store are a way better deal. There are 125 eye three sizes, big medium, and a little smaller than medium. My kiddos can use all of these ones, the one thing is that it doesn't have the sticky part so glue is necessary. So I ended up with 1175 googly eyes YES!!! I am sure I will not run out this year (I already have a whole bunch at work) I decided to separate them by size and out them in containers and bags, which of course now it means I will have to do the same with the ones I have in a box at work, I see a project next weekend.
But I am so glad and to be honest I will keep buying them every time I see them, I am going to use them so might as well, specially those big ones....
My kiddos will also get a nice surprise come Friday for treasure day. I got a new box. Currently I have a plain yellow box with treasure items. I found this one at DDS and I was going back and forth between this one and a pirate one, but I figure for my three year old this is a cute one. I also, was able to get lots of goodies from the dollar tree store. I am excited to take it to work and use it Friday.
I cannot believe it is September already. I have scheduled ten IEP meetings, yes ten meetings..AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I will have seven in one week. Is okay after this month it will be one or two at the most and I believe nothing until November, I just have to keep reminding myself "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can"
I was able to figure out the sub line today YAY after trying for a few days. So I was able to request a sub for both days I will have IEPs.
Well time to go to sleep, long-short week ahead. Hope everyone had a great long weekend. If you are starting back at work tomorrow. GOOD LUCK have a great school year!!!!
