New Finds at the Target $1 Spot!

After seeing  a post from Tabitha from Scrapbook of a School Counselor on "I messages" on whiteboard sentence strips, I headed over to Target to see what counselor finds that I could get for the upcoming school year.  So I didn't find the whiteboard sentence strips, but found something even better...Full, front and back mini whiteboards that have the sentence lines (like a sheet of notebook paper).


These are going to be great to use with students and small groups.  I bought 6 boards ($1 each = $6).   I also found dry erase markers (pack of 2 markers) in the $1 spot (3 packs = $3).

I also saw a neat idea on Pinterest to make erasers for dry erase markers by putting a pom pom on the end of the marker.  I used a hot glue gun to glue the pom pom on the cap of each pen and ta-da brilliance is born!

Finished product!

Total cost for the project:  $10!

  1. Oh how clever . . . I saw the white boards and wondered what I could do with them if I bought them . . . I picked up some dollar light bulb and smiley face stress balls to give as door prizes for National School Counseling Week . . . yay!!

  2. great idea!!! Thanks for sharing!! I love the Target $1 spot too for school counseling resources!! Going to get myself some of these!!! Thanks Again!


  3. Love the ideas. For those of us far away from Target, we just laminate strips of paper for homemade white boards.

  4. I have a feeling that these trusty boards will be getting a lot of use. @RHanna, you are absolutely correct by laminating strips of paper as a whiteboard alternative. Great & creative thinking. I'm debating should I go back and get a few more boards now!
