Where it All Goes Down Wednesday

I really wish I had pictures of my classroom to share! Unfortunately, we have a later start date than other areas and I have not been back in my classroom yet to set up. I did get a few things over the summer that I am excited to add to my classroom this year, so I will share those!

I love this poster:




I think it is a great motto and I hope my students will embrace it! I hope it will remind them that every day is a day to be learning something new and the importance of taking advantage of that! :)

I am also excited about this poster: 


It is cute, simple and straight to the point! :)

I can't wait to use this in my classroom as a new management tool: 


I know this probably looks a little silly (it is a baby toy after all!), but one of the teachers on my team used this last year to signal the students when she needed to get their attention and I thought it was a great suggestion. (Thanks Emily!) I am excited to have a little musical arrangement in the classroom! :)


I am also loving these name plates I found: 


I like ones with bright colors, but ones that aren't too distracting! I like to find ones that are fun and cheerful, but not too girly! And yes, I have spent a lot of time thinking about this, but since we all have to look at them for the entire year, I want it to be a good choice! :)


I can't wait to put these up in our windows to brighten them up during the different seasons:
Leaves, Back to School, Snowflakes and Shamrocks--so cute!


But I think the thing I was MOST excited about finding this summer for a fun addition to my classroom is this: 


Yes, it is a PINK, bedazzled stapler! I was SO happy when I found this because I have been wanting one just like this for so long! One of my co-workers and close friend has a stapler just like this that a student of hers from last year gave me. Just about every morning I go into her room to chat and I secretly covet her pink sparkly stapler every time I see it sitting on her desk! (Actually, it's not a secret at all because I tell her all the time how much I like it...hah!) I'm sure it sounds silly to be excited about a STAPLER of all things, but oh well! I love it! Yay for Staples having this adorable little office accessory! (And no surprise, I most certainly did buy the matching pen as well!) :)

Wow, fantastic stapler. I think a lot about name-plates too. This year I found music themed ones.

Amazing stapler but does it come in red or black?? I love the sparkle and wouldn't be able to resist the matching pen either.
