Get An Extra Boost to Your Back to School Shopping

Did you know that Teachers Pay Teachers will be doing another Back to School Sale? Teachers Pay Teachers had held their annual Back to School Sale at the beginning of August but after more data about starting dates, the decision was made to host an additional sale on August 20th. It's meant to give a boost to this new upcoming school year. So, if you missed the last sale or want to pick up those items on your wish list, now is the time to shop. Take advantage of the great savings. My store will be discounted 20% and you can get an extra 8% off when you use the promo code: boost. This includes my bundle sets which are already discounted and will provide you with tremendous savings. I will extend my sale for an additional day to provide you with 20% off on August 21st, however you will not be able to use the special promo code to get the extra 8% off.

Happy Shopping and Enjoy Your School Year!

You Oughta Know About Using Soap Boxes for Classroom Supplies

I am so excited to be linking up with some amazing bloggers for this fun blog hop full of classroom ideas. Thanks to Jasmine from Buzzing with Mrs. McClair for hosting.

You oughta know about using soap boxes for classroom supplies. I found these hinged soap box containers for only 69 cents at Stop & Shop and I just love them! You will find them in the trial sized section of your store. You can also find them at Walmart for 97 cents.  They are the perfect size for storing crayons. There is even enough room in each container to store the fat crayons that I use with my kindergartners. We all know that crayon boxes just don't last. My students work at tables and do not have individual desks of their own. The larger sized pencil boxes that you see in the major department stores and office supplies stores  seem to take up too much space on the tables and leave little room for students to work. These little boxes fit inside of the one storage bin that I have set on each table filled with other supplies such as scissors, glue sticks, dry erase markers, etc. In the past, I always had the students share crayons that were at each table, however after awhile there always seemed to be issues with not finding the right color and too many students from the table reaching in from the same bin caused problems. Students will now have to take more responsibility for their own crayon supplies. If they choose to break them, then they are stuck with broken crayons. Hopefully, students will take better care of their supplies this year. I bet teachers could use these little travel sized soap boxes for so many other things in the classroom or even at home to organize your junk drawers.The best part is the price.If you are like me you are always looking for affordable creative ideas.
Soap boxes are the perfect storage solution

I made these adorable owl chevron labels to go on top of them. Owls are all the rage and I think they came out cute. You can find these editable storage labels at my store.    

You can also use them on those popular rolling carts you find in Walmart and Target. Here is a picture of my rolling cart. I have another one that I am going to redecorate this year with these labels.

As you can see I am just crazy about owls. I just love decorating my classroom with them. I just created these adorable clipboards with owl chevron paper. Do you have those ugly brown clipboards hanging around in your class? You might want to try and jazz them up with some decorative paper and stickers or ribbons on the top. Just apply clear contact paper on top of your pretty printed paper and you are good to go. I was able to grab a small roll of clear contact paper at Dollar Tree. 


If you really like my set and you do not feel like creating your own. You can also get this at my stores and customize it with your name or whatever else you would like to put. 

While you are here, please be sure to check out my previous post on this blog for a chance to win 10.00 at my TN store. Just scroll down and enter.  It is super easy. You can enter the rafflecopter with just a few options. There are very few entries so far, so the chances of you winning are GREAT!!   

I have just a couple of more weeks of summer left, but I've been so busy getting things ready for my class. Enjoy what is left of your summer and have a wonderful school year! Have fun with the rest of this blog hop. 
There are so many great ideas in store for you.
