    Does anyone else love the Target Dollar Spot for teaching supplies? I wasn't planning on buying anything for my classroom yet but I found a few cute things that I couldn't resist! My favorite was a little sign with colored clothespins to hang student work. I also found these apple magnetic clips for the whiteboard and a little pencil pointer that students can use when presenting their work.

    I got some of those clothes pins! My friend got a lot of those tubs and trays. I wish I had more money. I'd get more stuff. I love Dollar Tree right now, too. Lots of teacher goodies!!

    Possibly hanging student work?

    I'm always really jealous when I watch videos of hauls from Target because we don't have them in Canada.

    I’m 50 miles from the nearest Target. I’ve seen a lot of cute things people have found.

    Fortunately, I’m also getting ready to start year 26, so I don’t need anything.

    That's a good idea! They also had wooden sign with colored paperclips on it. I was thinking of using it for no name work.

    Love the dollar spot! I always find things I didn’t know I needed! Unfortunately, ours is already picked over with the back to school stuff :eek:

    Wow that is crazy! It feels like there is a ton of time until back to school. The first Target I went to was like that, but I went to a different target and there was a ton of stuff! It isn't all cheap though--a lot of the bins were $3 so if you get a bunch it would add up. There was stuff that I felt would be most useful for an elementary teacher as well like pocket charts.

    Agree! I usually find decor items there, because their education related things are too elementary!

    The Target near me has a really crummy selection so I never end up finding anything useful :(

    Target also has a 15% discount on school supplies for teachers until July 15th. You need to sign up online and they will send you a coupon.

    I used to think I liked teaching because I really liked all the cute stuff I could buy.
