As always, how can you go on a vacation without thinking about the classroom... even just a little? In my souvenir shopping I found some really neat things:
I am SUPER excited about the 2 decks of mini playing cards I bought at the San Diego Zoo for under $6. Every face has a different zoo animal on it... I'm thinking math stations... matching to dominos, ten frames, whathaveyou, greater/less than, memory games... the possibilities are endless!
My mom also found me this great book the Muir Woods giftshop and was sweet enough to buy it for me:
I absolutely love it!
You'll also notice the "Great Work!" stickers on the upper left... yes, I dragged my mom to Target. I don't know what I was hoping for- it carried all the same stuff as the ones in Texas. We learned a new rule traveling, "never pass a bathroom." Well, the teacher's rule should be, "never pass a Target!"
