Recently I received an email from Katie at Oriental Trading offering me $75 dollars worth of classroom supplies for FREE! Wow! What a generous gift!
At first I wanted to get all the Paint Chip Decorations I could find they are absolutely adorable, however then I remember I had a new role at school this year and I would be traveling between classrooms. So I have to be a little bit more practical about what I picked out.
One thing I love to do is give out gifts especially for birthdays so one of the teachers I work with and I found a birthday cup idea on Pinterest. We are going to fill the cups up with lots of goodies including these bouncy balls we ordered from Oriental Trading.
Another thing I decided to order was plastic folders for reading folders. Then when I work with students they have someplace to put the books and notes I give them to take home and review.
Next, I ordered an art project for my favorite class, the second graders, to make when they are learning about Reconciliation. Second Grade is such a big year and it is so hard to find projects to use when teaching Reconciliation.
And finally I ordered some Multicultural Markers because you can never have enough of these.
Thank you again Oriental Trading for a the wonderful gifts. I know the students at my school will appreciate the items very much.
P.S. I created a wish list of more items I hope to get soon:
