Thrift Shops and Centers

The weather where I live has been blessed by Tropical Storm Debbie for the last several days.  Tired of being cooped up inside, I went bargain hunting on Saturday.  At one of the thrift stores I visited, I found a box of scrapbooking papers.  I went through and selected a boatload!  Then, I came home and worked on creating some Reading Strateges Direction Charts for centers.  I printed out the charts and then mounted them onto the scrapbookin papers using photo splits (I hate laminating projects made with glue!).  I love the way they turned out!  I've posted a few pics below.  If you would like free copies of the charts, please visit my Teachers' Notebook store.  The charts can be used as is or mounted on some type of background and laminated.

Happy Blogging!

  2. Thanks! I wish I could take credit for my signature...but it came with the blog, which was designed by Alicia at Dreamlike Magic. She also installed everything for me. I am so excited to have another follower. :)
