Dollar Tree Deal for Teachers!

Stop what you're doing right now, get out your favorite colored Flair pen, and add "Go to Dollar Tree" on your to-do list tomorrow because you're just going to die over these little Dollar Tree darlings...


Stop the world.  Aren't they precious?!  I'm sure tons of your have "Word Munchers" in your rooms, but I didn't have one and when I saw these little guys I just had to snatch them up!  They're actually gift bags. Maybe this isn't a novel idea, but I am just smitten with this trio! 

I put them on my window ledge by my whole group meeting spot, and think they're going to work perfectly for sorting long /o/ words tomorrow and other words in the future.  Obviously, you could use them for many other sorting purposes, and they fold which is a major bonus for storing purposes or if you're limited on space.  And, THEY'RE ONLY A BUCK a piece!  Love. It.


{I attached the rimes with sticky tack so I could easily remove them.}

I made this printable to go with it.  There are blank spaces on the worksheet where you can fill in your own word family, rime, blend, diagraph, ending, whatever!  Click on the picture below to download.


Have a great day, y'all!

These are great! I bought them myself and actually cut out the mouths so it looks like the monsters are munching the cards. My kiddos call it "feed the monster" and they loooove it!!

This is incredible! I bought 2 of these bags today because I thought they were just too cute and I knew I'd end up using them as a tutor at some point. I'm going back tomorrow to get some more! Thanks so much for the monster sheet.

My Dollar Tree doesn't have them. . .soooooo sad!!!

Miss. Paxson said...

We have three dollar trees in my town...none of them had these cute bags! Sooo sad :(

Quaynaya said...

After going to my third Dollar Tree, I found them!!! Thanks Abby :)

AmberJean519 said...

I picked those bags up JUST YESTERDAY! I just about jumped out of my shoes when I saw them! I'm going to have my kids do an adjective sort with them. I'm going to write all sorts of different adjectives on note cards, and then have the kids sort the adjectives according to the monster. For the most part, there will be no wrong answers ("silly" can go in any bag) but I just want to get them reading and understanding how to describe things! LOVE these bags, and I LOVE your idea for them!!!!!!!

I just couldn't wait until I got to the dollar tree (The closest one is 30 miles). These bags are so cute! I just bought 1 of each but reading all the creative ideas I think I need more!!!

Ashley said...

Mine Dollar Tree doesn't have them either :( or the fake snow!! So stinking cute!!

Jennifer said...

So bummed that our Dollar Tree didn't have them. I even went online to see if their website had them...no luck :(

OMG this is such a cute idea... I so need to make a trip to the dollar tree. It is so great when a fellow teacher can turn something that I wanted to buy but couldn't come up with anything into a really fun idea my kids would actually enjoy.:) I was thinking sticking a velcro dot on the bag and making it interchangeable that way. I've never worked with sticky tack before. Thanks!
