Great Classroom Finds!

Dear Diary,

Today I did some more shopping for my classroom and came across some really great finds.  I went to Michael's and found the cutest note cards that I am going to send my students to welcome them to my classroom.  I am so excited about these note cards because our school's theme is "Sailing Beyond Excellence" and the note cards say "Sail Towards Your Dreams."  I know I can incorporate the two some kind of way!! The note cards were 6 in a pack for $1.00!
My classroom colors are chocolate and turquoise.  While shopping at Educational Wonderland, a teacher supply store, I found these designer cut-outs.  As of right now, I have no idea what I am going to use them for, but I absolutely love them! I think they are soooo cute!  I may go back and get more for a giveaway!! What do you think? There are 36 in a pack and the cost was $5.99.  I especially like them because there are 3 different designs in each pack!
I also found the cutest border to match the cutouts! These were also found at Educational Wonderland.  I can't wait to see how this looks on my bulletin board.  I think I am going to accent it with an orange boarder to make it pop or stand out! What color would you use to make it stand out?!

Finally, I just had to go to Target!!  While there, I found these cute foam apples.  There are 10 in a pack for $1.00. There are 5 red and 5 green apples in each pack.  I think I am going to put a cute bow on the top and take pictures of the students during Meet and Greet to put on the center of the apple.  I then may create a bulletin board with the apples.  What would you do with these?!


  1. I love when Michael's has cards and stationary! I always stock up - they are so cute for usually a $1! This year, I also found some cute thank you notes at Target for $1 as well! You can never have too much stationary!

    Thanks for sharing all your great finds,
