    I'm moving into a 1st grade classroom and don't really have any 1st grade materials. I began looking for chairs at the beginning of the summer. I found a great kid sized, soft cushioned rocking chair at a yard sale for $1.50. I bought some paint for $1.99 at Odd Lots, a yard or two of fabric from JoAnn fabrics for less than $4. It took a day or two to paint a couple of coats on and recover. It's at cute as a button! I can't wait to use it and it only cost a total of about $8.
    Later I went to an estate sale and purchases two rather ugly chairs for $1 each. I again purchased some paint and some fun polka dotted fabric and changed the ugly chairs to something the children will love. They even swivel!!
    So, keep your eye out and if you have some time and a little creativity you can come up with some fun furniture for less than $10.
