Getting my SHOP on!

WOW! I have been a busy bee this summer! Besides ordering some cute Bee themed items last night (Thanks Christina Bainbridge for the 15% off hook-up) I have been downloading so many good , fun files.

I found some really cute BEE decorations for my plant and light effects.

I picked up some cute file folders and friendship quotes, plus buckets to make into my sharp/not sharp pencil holders (I chose red for stop and green for go, not color themed to the room, but maybe it will help), plus Bath and Body Works had a 50% off on hand sanitizer magnetic holders...yeah for BEES!!!

Did I mention, I went to the Dollar Tree? I've been looking for odds and ends for my pool adventures this summer, when I stumbled upon these little cuties. I'm not sure exactly how I am going to use them in the classroom, but I am sure it will be to hold some sort of manipulatives, either in my Word Work area or Math Centers???

So cute, I couldn't resist just one!!

My last purchase (so far) was a new Communication Area,the old one, was one the last teacher 'left behind' when she vacated the room-it was not so nice. So I bought two units, on sale at Target (yes, I say Tar-jhay)!

I am so excited about this new school year! I am going to the Christmas Tree Shoppe and Lakeshore next Wednesday, I'll let you know how I make out!


  1. Wow!!! That's a lot of neat stuff :) Ivw been putting off on the shopping, because it's so hard to stop!! So much fun though :) I LOVE the red and green color idea for the cups!! The kids sometimes don't really read our cute labels and a green for shar is easy to see :)

    1. On July 11th Kristin and I are going to Lakeshore and Christmas Tree should come with us! Save up now!

  2. I have never been to Christmas Tree Shop, what is that?? and Lakeshore is so tempting! they always have awesome stuff :)

    1. Hard to describe, it's like the "home goods" store but at rock bottom prces, lots of cute froo froo stuff, plus teaching decor stuff and seasonal decor, I'd say look it up on line, but they only have locations and career info, no store photos at all!
