This was also a pretty cool basket to go next to the tv in the basement. It is sturdy canvas and it is structured. It was also on sale at Michaels for $9.99 (before my teacher discount). I love it because it is tall (it comes to almost my knees)!
I did get two things accomplished besides cleaning :)
These book ends were given to me years ago. I decided to reuse them and created updated book ends!
The cork & symbols were $3.59 this week at Michaels!!! They also had them in galvanized metal and denim. I liked the look of the cork. The bears were tied on, so when I untied them, the main part was completely perfect :) Then I just hot glued the "&" on the base and voila...new book ends!
This was something that I needed to finish up to complete my Build It! Draw it! Write it! Bundle. This is 28 pages with digraphs. Students have to cut up the mixed up sentence and then put it back together. They also have to draw a picture and write the sentence they built.
