Dear Brain Bubbles,
I bow down to you. I cannot stay away any longer. I was comfortably seated on my freezing cold couch yesterday upon arriving home, with all the blinds closed in order to avoid the 100 degree Chicago heat with all my power. I was perfectly fine, but then you started creeping on me as I perused proteacher. I crept out of my darkened, glorious apartment to the unbearable heat to make the 2 minute trip to dollar tree. Where you wonderful little guys crept into my cart:
(Yes, that's about 20-22 packages of the infamous plastic brain bubble packages. I realized I probably didn't need that many, but I will find them a purpose! I may actually use the square ones to give my thirdies (which btw doesn't sound nearly as cute as firsties, or maybe I'm just bitter I am changing grades) to use them to store their WTW sort cards. We shall see... otherwise I may have some plastic brain bubbles up for sale.)
Anyway, I'm a little upset and a little joyous that you have come into my life. I will be using you in my classroom. Hopefully my 30 little friends will be using you to make themselves a little smarter. I can't wait to arrive home in a few hours so I can begin assembling parts of you, while I wait for rest of your insides to arrive in the mail.

Here are the labels I'm using for my Brain Bubbles, plus polka dot ones of course.
I'll probably use pink for math and green for language arts, or the opposite.
The big round circle will go on the outside of the basket that holds them. Enjoy!
