A Little Shopping, a Little Quatrefoil, and a Little Video Fun

My brother-in-law got married this morning!  I'm am so happy for him and his new bride!  While we take a little break before the reception, I thought I would share a little shopping fun, my new set of papers, and a fun video that some friends shared on Facebook.  There is even a little thank you at the end.  ;)

A Little Shopping
Have you done any shopping yet for this next school year?  I was finally able to get a little shopping done this week.  I really wanted to buy more stuff, but couldn't find things to buy.  How sad is that?


So far this summer I have purchased some folders for my poetry journals. small buckets that I think I am going to use at my small group table, some small blue pocket charts, alphabet stickers, and Sharpie pens.  I am sure that this Target pile will grow larger as the school year gets closer.  :)

I wish I could remember who out there in blogland recommended these Sharpie pens, but thank you.!  I bought the black pen when I needed to sign a card to mail right away.  After that, I knew I needed to expand my collection! The pink, turquoise, and purple pens soon followed.  {As you can see, I haven't actually opened these yet.}  If you haven't tried these out yet, I highly recommend that you do.  You will not be disappointed!

Hobby Lobby

This is my pitiful little Hobby Lobby pile.  :(  I really, really wanted to find more here.  Maybe the next time.  I have the basic colors of these poster markers, so I knew I needed to have this companion set.  These markers are great for anchor charts.  They don't bleed through to the next page, which I love!  I also bought a couple spools of ribbon.  I'm not sure what I am going to use them for, but I'm sure I'll find something.  :)


This is my "Amy is lazy" purchase.  {haha}  Sometimes I get tired cutting out of cards with scissors.  I am hoping that this will speed up the process a bit.  :)

Lakeshore Learning

I bought these tubs to use on the desks at the end of my tables.  I have been using the same buckets for a couple of years and they were pretty beat up by the end of this past year.  I decided to try out these new ones.  Hopefully, they will work the way I want them too.  {I will share the way I set my tables in a future post.}

I also bought some new borders, gray construction paper, and some small magnetic whiteboards.  {The cute Lakeshore Learning bag was a freebie for agreeing to receive their coupons through text messages.  Coupons to Lakeshore - yes, please.  :) }  Last year I looked everywhere for zebra border and couldn't find it so I grabbed a couple packages of them.  I also grabbed another set of the blue dots paper that I used in my classroom last year.  I needed to gray construction paper, because I never know what colors my school will have and I need it to make my raccoon craft the first week of school.  The magnetic whiteboards will be perfect for my small groups.  I can't wait for my Kinders to use them!

A Little Quatrefoil
This week I also made a new paper set.  My newest paper set is a rainbow quatrefoil set.  {I told you on Monday I was loving quatrefoil!}  I had so much fun figuring out the pattern and changing up the colors to make this set

A Little Video Fun
I have not seen Pitch Perfect, but I think this song is great!  This group does a wonderful job with it.  There is no way that I could even attempt to do this!  I am way too uncoordinated.  {haha}

A Little Something For You
If you have made it this far, I have a little gift for you.  I put my quatrefoil papers on my Facebook page for a fan freebie.  All you have to do is to like my page, click on the fan freebies tab, and download the file.  Easy, peasy.  This is will be up until I get back from dropping off my son at ESY on Monday.  {As you can see, I only have 2 little likes. I would love to have more of you visit!}

I'm off to take a small nap before the reception.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
