Fun in First Grade: FREE Subway Art

One of my favorite items is my Band-Aid box . . . nothing fancy (obviously), but seriously a huge time saver for me AND the nurse. Plus, it keeps my kids in the room and not in the nurse's office. I just buy Band-Aids at the Dollar Tree, Big Lots, or just on sale. You can usually get a box for a buck!  Whenever the kids need one, they get one! No need to explain the boo-boos, just get a Band-Aid!

Lots of school organizing stuff

This is a good idea: Keep borders rolled up and visible in clear round Ziploc containers.
