I think this week our theme should be TARGET DOLLAR SPOT, because I put my purchases to good use! I also love the ideas from Ramona Recommends who is hosting this week! I bought these clips in the Target Dollar Spot as well, and it looks like I'm headed to buy some sticky magnets! I love find new classroom decor and organization tips. :)

I purchased this adorable notebook paper dry erase banner. Since no one needs to see my arthritic handwriting, I also grabbed a pack of burlap letter stickers to go with the banner.
Next, I tried to decide just what my banner should say. I had originally thought about putting my name on the banner. I will be moving into a teeny tiny intervention room (closet) in the first grade pod, so I wanted a way for students to be able to recognize my door easily.
Scratch that idea! Even with the pink pack of letters it just wasn't working for me. A good planner would have noticed there was only 1 letter n in each package and bought multiple packs. Needless to say I never have a plan at Target beyond spending my entire paycheck.
Back to the drawing board.
Oh here is a bright idea! How about just saying WELCOME!!! So original...
The burlap letters did not come with any punctuation marks. I trimmed the letter I and the inner part of the capital D to make the exclamation point! Luckily my unpacked makeup bag was nearby to use as a circle template.

I can't wait to see this hanging from my new classroom door! Our pod is orange, so I know the blue will pop nicely, and it will work regardless of the season or grade level!
