Thrifty Thursday: Dollar Store Workbooks
I also picked up a couple of books with science facts in them (animals & space) to read segments to my daughter. These were from the dollar store as well.
The other packets & reading chart came from her soon-to-be 1st grade teacher to work on over the summer.
We had been sent home a brochure to order a Time for Kids workbook (which included a "free" magazine subscription) that was about $15 and included enough pages equivalent to only 1 -2 of these workbooks. I didn't need the magazine subscription and knew $15 was kinda spendy for the workbook, so I went in search at the dollar store since I had seen some there before.
Also, someone had come around trying to sell educational books similar to the ones I picked up from the dollar store. The ones that were thinner like these hardcover ones were $10, whereas I paid $1.
I bought 6 workbooks (she already finished one after only a few days out from school, my little eager beaver, even though I told her my expectation was to finish 3 this summer) and 2 hardcover science books for $8, whereas it would have cost me $25 to get the equivalent of 2 workbooks & 2 science books.
