Thrifty Thursday ~ Save Those Bottle Caps!

Look at me blogging every day this week!  I'm not sure I'll be able to keep it up when I return to school  next week, but I'm certainly going to do my best.

It's been For.Ever since I did a Thrifty Thursday post.  With so many of us on tight budgets, I need to focus much more on some frugal classroom ideas for us.

I also try to recycle and re-use as much as possible.  While I'm far from being as 'green' as I'd like to be, I do my best.


I have some plans in mind for these.

To be prepared, I'm going to start saving up screw-on lids from soft drinks, water, Powerades, milk, and orange juice.  I'm also going to be on the lookout for the flip-top lids.

I might ask for parents to save these and send them to me as well.  {Washed and dried, preferably!}

If you'd like to be ready for some math, science, and social studies ideas, start saving or gathering up some for yourself!

Enjoy :)


  1. Last year I wanted bottle caps for a way to practice sight words with my kindergartner who was struggling. During testing times, we give our students small water with their snack. I sent an email out and asked every one to have their students save them. I literally received hundreds and hundreds... several days of testing, several hundred kids, you get the picture.
    Could be option... I have used them for center games already twice this year!

Not all teachers are much sincere in their profession. Teaching is a profession that has got a lot of responsibilities. It is the duty of the teachers to lighten the minds of children with knowledge. The knowledge and things that children learn in their childhood decided their future. Apart from knowledge, a teacher also has to teach the lessons of humanity and good deeds. It will be very difficult for a teacher to look after all the children in their class. They will not be able to control the children by being strict or rude. Only love could control them. A Teacher looks after each child of their class like a mother. Thus students will begin to feel school like their second home. As a mid-school teacher, you would have a lot of experiences with their children. They are very innocent. The information learned by children at a younger age gets registered in their minds. This gets reflected in their personality and character later in the future. That is why it is the duty of the teacher to make sure that only good things are learned by the children.
