A Few of my FAVORITE Things Linky Party

Oh Em Gee. The day is FINALLY here and I'm so excited you stopped by for our back 2 school linky! I hope you have enjoyed browsing around all of our blogs learning about our favorite back to school items. Make sure you stay tuned at the end of this post for an AMAZING giveaway!
I really love the beginning of the year. A fresh start with new supplies a clean classroom and the smell of Crayola crayons. Sign me up! I have to admit shopping for my classroom is adiciting! I'm sure we can all relate on that though.
Now for "A Few of my Favorite Things!" This list could go on forever BUT I will try to control myself. Maybe. I'm not making any promises!!!

Kettle Corn
Have you had this popcorn?! If not you should get some immediately! I found these huge bags (yes I bought 3...don't judge) at Coscto. You can also buy them at Target. I'm constantly snacking at school and these are my go to item. WARNING: Very addicting!

Teacher Bag

 Oh how I love thirty-one! This bag is the perfect teacher bag. I love all the outside pockets to help organize the small items to and from my classroom. This bag holds a special place in my heart since one of my students bought it for me at the end of the year! #bestgiftever

Comfy Shoes

 Clearly as women we all love shoes...right?!? Well I was the newbie teachers fresh out of college teaching kindergarten in heals. No joke. The crazy part is at that age they were actually comfortable to me?!? Not anymore. Once I was pregnant I traded in those heals for flats. Best decision ever. These are my three go to shoes for the classroom. So comfy!

Dollar Store Baskets
 Baskets, baskets and more baskets. A classroom can never have to many baskets. I'm literally obsessed. I can't leave the dollar store without picking these up. They are so bright and colorful! Plus the organization... Oh the possibilities!

I-phone <3

  Do you use your phone in your classroom? If not, you should! I use my timer the most. It keeps me and the students on time and that's a necessity! I also love taking pictures of my students during the day and using it as positive encouragement "I caught you" My kids LOVE THIS!

CISS Printing System
 Have you seen this little trick from Amy at Learning Lessons with Mrs. Labrasciano??? It's amazing! I think it is my very favorite back to school item because of all the printing we do for the beginning of the year. I was going to spend over 50 dollars to replace my ink but instead bought this unit on Ebay for 42 dollars. Best part?!?! It will last WAY longer!!!

  1. Holy CUTE teacher swag! I'm going out right now to get the popcorn. It's yummy, low cal and organic. Just what I need.
    Take care, Amy

    1. You are to sweet! Just like that kettle corn :)

  2. Seriously! We have so many of the same loves! Boom Chicka Pop is to die for, and I traded in my heels last year for flats. I didn't blog about any of those this time, but wow!

    One Sharp Bunch

  3. I use my iphone for the same exact reason. It always cracks me up when kids all of a sudden are sitting straight up in their chairs when the phone comes out!
