Back to School Gifts with Oriental Trading

Back to school, friends! Teachers went back August 18th and we had Open House that night, too! Our Open House is where students and parents get to come in meet the teacher, drop off supplies, and look around their room. I always like to give my students a little gift on this night. 
Oriental Trading made it easy!
I chose 2 dozen Neon Canvas Drawstring bags. They work well with my brightly colored classroom! I love giving my students personalize gifts, so I obviously had to add their names!

I added these cute neon flexible pencils to their bag and added a tag. Pretty cute, right?
They loved them!

I also got a set of Neon Tall Storage Baskets, but haven't decided how to use them, yet. Stay tuned for that!

I also started a wishlist for parents that would like to donate to our classroom. You can check it out here. So far it includes bulk classroom supplies and fun prizes for students. Make sure to create your own wishlist just by creating an account. Just share your URL with your parents! I also added the link to my email signature!

I hope to have the reveal of my new 1st grade room on the blog next weekend! Stay tuned

I was provided these products featured in this post from Oriental Trading for review purposes. All opinions are mine alone and based off of the experience I had with the products I reviewed.

3rd Blogiversary- Day 12 of 12 Days of Giveaways

It's the final day of 12 days of giveaways!!!
Thank you so much to each and every one of you who has followed me on this teaching journey. When I started this blog, it was a sole reflection for myself and to make me a better teacher. Never in my wildest dreams did I think people would actually read and want to hear my ideas and what I did inside and outside my classroom. I love you all!

Thank you also to everyone who has helped make this celebration possible! :)

We saved the best for last! We may have just had the #bestyear TpT sale, but that doesn't mean you still don't have items in your wishlists and carts!

Today is $50 to TpT!

$50 TeachersPayTeachers Giftcard

Remember, all giveaways end tonight at midnight, so make sure you are all caught up! Winners will be announced next week! :)

3rd Blogiversary- Day 11 of 12 Days of Giveaways

Did you know that I started my teaching journey as a middle school teacher?! True story. I taught a 6th-8th grade reading class with students that basically slipped through the cracks during their elementary years. Those kids are now in high school, some seniors!

Thanks to these middle and high school friends for offering one lucky person these great resources!


3rd Blogiversary- Day 10 of 12 Days of Giveaways

I love me some coffee, folks! Seriously, if I don't have caffeine in the morning, I just can't deal.
runs on Starbucks

So a few of my friends are helping me with today's 12 days of giveaways for a $25 giftcard to Starbucks! Thanks a latte ladies! 

Remember, all giveaways end August 6th at midnight, so don't wait! These last few days don't last long!

3rd Blogiversary- Day 9 of 12 Days of Giveaways

Just because I'm now a primary teacher, doesn't mean I've forgotten about my upper elementary friends! Today is for you!

This bundle of 9 has math, literacy, science, and social studies resources! Perfect if you're new to upper elementary, or a veteran who just wants to switch things up a bit!

So thankful for these upper grade teachers to help me bring you these fantastic goodies!


3rd Blogiversary- Day 8 of 12 Days of Giveaways

Is there anyone out there that doesn't have a Michael's?

Yep, that's right. When all of you post your great deals on cardstock, I'm over here having major FOMO. I have been known to order a rainbow drawer card online, however. So if you're like me, you can still use this giftcard!
Thanks to my sweet friends for helping out for today's giveaway!
