The frugal and green teacher: reading edition

Another sign of a frugal and green teacher: books procured through Paperbackswap.com. Our grade's theme is trains, so I entered "trains" in the search box and clicked "children's" for genre. I ordered ten books, all good quality literature, at a variety of reading levels. My students love them. This is a rare day; most of the time, these books are in someone's desk.





The USA Pop-up books, however, were in the Target dollar aisle a few years ago. I bought five. Hmmm... I see four in the picture. One is in a desk somewhere, and I'm sure the kiddo is enjoying reading it!
Tune in next week for the next episode of The Frugal and Green Teacher, NaBloPoMo edition!
