Dollar Store Gems

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
One of my summer pasttimes is parusing the Dollar Tree and other bargain stores.  Last week when I was there, I found these some cute cheese/mice and pb/j cutouts.  I knew that I could use them for something so I picked up two sets of each.  I decided to make some centers with them.  To read how I run my centers, click here. Since I have 4 packs of cutouts, I thought of some tricky but valuable skills that I like my students to learn {even if they aren't all CCSS!} and what I came up with was: synonyms, antonyms, compound words, and contractions.

To make these, you just need some coordinating cutouts, some printable labels {Avery 5160}, and access to a laminator!  Print, slap on the labels, laminate, and cut!  Click here to snag the free printable labels.  Click here to snag the free recording sheets.  Don't worry...there are blank versions of the recording sheets {to be used with any cutouts} included as well in case you can't find these little cutouts! Endless center possibilities!

I have these cutouts as well. I used the mice and cheese for my students' names and attached magnets to the back of them. They used them when they were leaving the room so we could see at a glance who was out.
I just bought the pb and j so now I have a new use for them. Thank you.

I didn't see them at my Dollar Tree last evening, but did you know that you can order from the Dollar Tree website and have items shipped to the store for free? I am seriously thinking about buying stock in Dollar Tree!! :)

chickadee said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Ok, now I see that you have to buy large quantities. I guess that would still be helpful if you are going in with your grade level.

I saw your post and headed for the Dollar Tree immediately. I found the pb & j, but no mice and cheese. Too bad cuz they're super cute. But I did score ketchup/mustard bottles, cookies/milk, and a few others. I might just steal your ideas for them too!
