Teacher Supply Store Haul

I ran out of border this morning while working in my classroom, so I ran to Davies, a local teacher supply store. As usual, I ended up with a little bit more than just border. I always love when my favorite beauty bloggers do a haul post from Sephora or Ulta showing what all they bought, so I thought I'd do a teacher edition :)
Here's an overview:

I got my name plates. I can't wait to get my class list so I can put names on these cuties!
Here's a close of the name plates:
Love them! I almost went with some cupcake ones by Trend, but then I saw these and liked them better.

Our school colors are maroon and white, so these will be perfect to use for something during football season. 

These are my *favorite* item from today's trip. I've been meaning to order some from Lakeshore, so I was thrilled to find these by Learning Resources. They will go perfectly with my Say, Spell, and Stamp  center:

I've been looking everywhere for these! I can't wait to create some anchor charts with these. Hopefully they're as good as Mr. Sketch!
Aren't these cute? I'm going to use these for literacy centers. Maybe for sight word practice? I'm sure something will come to mind!

I don't know about y'all, but my kids always *love* getting their paper stamped. They especially love 'smelly' stamps. I try and always pick up a few of these whenever I'm at Davies. 

I'm just loving cupcakes this year. I'm going to try and incorporate these somewhere in the room and if that doesn't work, then I'm going to make centers out of them. 

And, of course, the original reason for the trip. :) I also got two different colors of bulletin board paper, but they are in the trunk of my car. Hopefully one will work for the math board. Speaking of which, any Go Math! teachers with pictures of their math board, please send them my way! We haven't received the math manipulatives yet, and I'm not sure how I want to do the board, having never taught the series. 

***I still haven't heard from Carol O., the winner of the Learning Resources HearALL Assessment Recorder. If I don't hear from Carol O. by tomorrow, I will pick another winner! :)   

Don't forget the Easi-Speak USB Recorder from Learning Resources giveaway! Tomorrow is the last day! Go enter now!


  1. I love your school supply finds!! That's one of my favorite things about back to school is buying school supplies. :)
    Learning Is Something to Treasure

  2. I love your idea of a haul! Nice polka dot borders!

    I think you might be disappointed by the Crayola Poster markers if you want them to be like Mr. Sketch. They're really different, but very awesome in their own way. Wait 'til you write on them on darker paper. The ink stands out in an awesome way. I think the ink is thicker and maybe even a little starchy. You should continue with the beauty blog idea and do a review of them ;)

    Sharpie poster markers and Mr. Sketch are my favorites.

  3. Wow. You got lots of stuff! I've been avoiding the teacher store... I always spend way too much when I go inside. I've never seen Crayola Poster Markers... need to check them out!
