I am linking up with Kristen at Ladybug Teacher Files for Summer Shopping Linky Party!
I recently traveled to IKEA in Charlotte with the hubby! It was a 3 1/2 hour trip one way, but I loved it! Hubby not so much! We literally drove there was in the store 3 HOURS, and drove the 3 1/2 hours back home. It was an extremely long day, but I scored a few things for my classroom. I wanted much more, but everyone has a budget and this is all I could justify right now! I am already thinking of planning another trip in the near future, but we will just have to see!
So here is what I got:
Computer Chairs~ I have ancient old cloth covered computer chairs, so hubby spotted these adorable new ones and they matched my new color scheme. I just had to get them. I am thinking of using them as rewards for getting to the top of the behavior chart or something. They were way too stinkin cute not to get. So I got four for my four computers! ($14.99 each)
Magazine Boxes~ I had ran into a dilemma over my current book boxes. I have the really good ones, but they are your basic primary colors. Red and Green does not go very well with my blue, neon green, and yellow color scheme. So I found these magazine boxes that I am going to use for the student book boxes. They were 5 for $1.99! I couldn't pass it up. I got 25 of them! Now I can use my good ones in my classroom library and the kids can use these.
I got a set of plastic cups, plates, and bowls for my housekeeping center. 6 colors of each for $1.99 each.
I got a dust pan and broom for when the kids make a mess they can clean it up. ($1.99) It was bright green!
I also got a roll of art paper for the easel for $4.99.
I think that is it! I am hoping to get my teacher friends on board and heading back to Charlotte before the school year starts. There was plenty more super cute stuff that I could use. If you have been to IKEA, what are things that you purchase for your classroom?
