Back to School Shopping!

It's that time of year again... back to school shopping is in full swing here. Teachers head back on Monday. Open House is August 2 and kids will be pouring in on Aug 6! Where did the summer go???

I have been picking up things here and there over the summer but have yet to share with you all of the amazing things I have gotten lately. Yes, I know I have posted quite a few but I have been holding out on some others.

I apologize. I was just simply too lazy to get the camera out or the stuff to take a picture. BUT since I am avoiding my paper... AGAIN... today I thought now would be the perfect time!! =)

This was a totally frivolous etsy find. I thought it would be so cute on top of a file cabinet in my classroom. So I ordered ti up and here it is. It is actually sitting on my dresser in my room at the moment. It matches so well!

These are hard to see in the picture... one is red, silver, and white the other is black, silver, and white. These were a gift from a friend when I was freaking out over THE test. She sent it to me with a card that says "we already know you are a graduate and a teacher, now you just have to prove it." So sweet!

A teacher has unique qualities 
The gift of wisdom to share. 
With patience and understanding
To inspire many with special care.

There are two as together they are black, white, and red
... LOVE her!!

Have you heard of the Polka Dot Market? All things polka dotted... love it! =) I heard about it from Schoolgirl Style. Picked up some fabric tape, paper daisies, and pom-poms for my classroom. These will look amazing with my new couture Schoolgirl Style items.

All of these items were found at Wal-Mart in the $0.88 section. LOVE it! I got name tags (matches nothing in my class, I will use these as a sub), Large stamps, Magnet Words (in 3 colors), Scentos Monster Markers, and binder clips that say to file, ASAP, to do, and something else.

These also came from Wal-mart but not super great buys. The polka-dot pencil pouch was $4 AND it doesn't fit pencils!! Only pens (shakes head in wonder)! The expos were $11... I love having lots of colors so I splurged.

This was my sad... sad Target trip. Three whiny boys + one whiny husband = no funness for me! That's okay I am sneaking off later tomorrow for a trip to Target and the Dollar Tree. Shhhh! I bought the flashcards for a possible center ... don't ask. I don't know yet. Then I looked over and saw red glitter glue. It was red... it was glittery... it was coming home with me. Now the only thing is what to use it for......

This was a surprise in the mail from another teacher friend. It came with a card that says "for your first set of keys to a classroom." I gave one of these away months ago and thought about getting one of my very own and alas... here it is!

Wow! I love all the stuff you got. I need to run to WalMart and try to get those magnet words.

Oh gosh you guys start back so early! I thought August 13th was early for me! This summer flew by. I'm the same as you (with the red glitter glue), I tend to by things that I have no idea what I'd use it for, but just had to have it! It's a big problem of mine. :) I'm new to the blogging world and I'm your newest follower! I'd love it if you stopped by my blog to follow me! :)

Cute stuff! I want some of the red glitter glue. I am obsessed with glitter. I know how tricky it is to shop with kids, and husband!!
