I found pencil cases on sale for $.01 at Staples today. I decided to buy them so that the kids could have everything they need for minilessons with them at the meeting area. (In the past, kids always had to search for pencils or pens prior to the minilesson… now they can just grab their case and come to the rug faster.)
Just wanted to share since I think the sale is on for the rest of the week.
