Super School Shopping Saturday Linky Party

I am linking up with Owl in a Vowel Tree to share my fun shopping finds for school.  I have been seeing all her cool pictures on Instragram (and other great finds by other teachers too).  I am loving Instragram!

You can join the fun too!

All you have to do is:
1.  Snap some pictures of your back to school supplies.
2.  Blog about your school supplies.
3.  Put the image above on your blog post and link it back to here.

I have found some great things for my room...
 1.  I found these cute owl things for my room.  They were on clearance at Office Max.  The bottom one is an eraser set.

 2.  Clips for my behavior chart and job chart.  I just put the kids names on the clips.  When they have to move up or down, it's easy to do with the clip.

 3.  Slick Stix markers.  Wow!!!  I love these!!!  They glide right over your paper!  I can't wait to start using them while writing my daily messages, anchor charts and posters.

 4.  I found these binder pouches at Target for 50 cents!!  I am so excited to use them!!!  I will be using this Rise and Shine binder this year and these pouches will fit right in!

Rise and Shine Binder
You can find it here.  Rise and Shine Binder.  It is amazing!!  You can learn more about it over at Tunstall's Teaching TIdbits

 5.  Mini whiteboard erasers!  I was so excited to find these little gems!  People have been posting them on Instagram for the past couple weeks.  I could never find them!  I was surprised to find them at the Dollar Spot at Target yesterday while looking for something else.
6.  Bins from Big Lots.  These will be used to house by books.  The ones on the end are magazine racks.  They will work well with the kids Writer's Workshop books that they have completed.

7.  Labels of my bins.  I love these!!! They are at Michael's right now. If you buy 2 you get 1 free.  All you do is stick the clear pouch to your lockers, book bins, baskets...whatever!  They have a sticky back.  Your labels with your book titles, kids names, etc. right inside. They are super sticky and will last years.  All you have to do from year to year is slide a new label into the pocket.  I got the long ones for the magazine bins pictured above

Finally, I wanted to give a big shout out to Jameson from Lessons With Coffee.  She has been so helpful to me with helping with my blog button design.  Thanks so much Jameson!  Make sure you hope over and check out her blog.

Have a great day!  This morning a friend of mine called and asked if I wanted to go see Montgomery Gentry with her that afternoon. I couldn't turn it down.  I am so excited!
