Kristen, over at Ladybug's Teaching Files, is hosting a Summer Shopping Linky Party... which is all up my alley. :) I did all of my back-to-school shopping the weekend after school let out and promised myself I wouldn't buy anything else over the summer. So far, so good! Good thing is - I totally forgot about all the goodies I bought! Unpacking the bag for this post was like Christmas morning, y'all!I laid it all out on the table and just stood there giggling. He he he he he! :D Woohoo! School supplies!
I L.O.V.E. color. Therefore, it was physically impossible to turn down pink pens, pink expo markers, and a pink iPod cable. Notepads and post-its are a weakness of mine. Apples and an octopus? Come on!
I decided to break down and buy some items I've always wanted but didn't want to spend money on. I love the cute magnetic whiteboard erasers (to match my jungle theme). I've always wanted a bell for recess, a "completed with teacher's help" stamp (and of course I got some pink ink!), and one of those line master marker holders for the board.
The basics and some cute finds! Gotta have name plates and birthday crowns. Got a handful of finger grips... those disappear like crazy. The maraca was an impulse buy at the register.. but I love it! :) Those pointers are extendable! Love!
Student grouping pencils I found at Lakeshore Learning Store! Sort by color, shape, or number! Score!
Welcome back goodies - bookmarks, silly bands, and banana scented monkey stickers. :)
...I saved the best for last... neon chart paper and notebook paper! Ah! Swoon!
Head over to Kristen's to link up, window shop... or just live vicariously through others' purchases. ;)
