Her August 2014 SLANT Box and Back To School TPT Purchases

Hi everyone! I am exactly two weeks away from summer vacation ending and very early alarms starting. I'm trying to stay positive and, today, I have two great reasons to smile.

First is my amazingly wonderful summer SLANT box from Courtney at Ramona Recommends. She is such a sweetheart and I loved getting to know her. She sent me a fantastic box and I cannot stop thanking her for everything. Here's what I got...
 The first thing I saw was a sweet note from Courtney. I am jealous of all the sunshine she gets in southern California, but she promised some sun-shiney gifts in the box. (PS - Isn't her handwriting great?!?!)
She included three note with adorable, summery flip flops, one to help our meal planning here at home, and a fun one that says "just a note" that I plan to use at school. She also sent a year-long planner and some adorable polka dot file folders. They will go perfectly in the room since I am switching to polka dots as a theme. :)

She also included two books. One was a picture book that illustrated the song "It's A Small World After All" with a CD that sings the song. The other book is a chapter book that I will be adding to my classroom library, once I read it of course. :)

She also included some fun items. Some "crayon" tissues, Expo markers, flair pens (my fave!!), pencils (that I know my kids will need/use), and stickers (which 8th graders fight over constantly). The peanut M&Ms were delicious! Yep, they are gone already! haha
Courtney - Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! I am in love with everything that you chose for me. You were a great partner and I'm glad we "met" through this process. Thank you again and again!!

Second is the annual Teachers Pay Teachers Back to School sale. I am linking up with Erin at Learning to be Awesome to show off my stash.

My Wish List on TPT had grown to five pages - yep 5! I used this sale to clean it out and buy some of the things that I have been wanting for a while. Here's the list of what I got. The links are below.

How do you plan to spend the last few days before school begins again? Or if your school year has already started how is it going?

Happy (What's Left of) Summer!


  1. Awesome SLANT box! :) Very fun stuff!

    We have 3 weeks until we HAVE to go back to work (for PD and staff meetings the 27th and 28th, then a long weekend and kiddos start the 2nd of Sept). We got an email that we can access our rooms this coming Monday. I know several people who will be in there immediately, but not me! :) I might stop in next Thursday just to drop off the stuff I have bought but I may continue to rebel and wait until the 25th as originally planned. :)

  2. Flare pen are awesome! Can you believe that it's almost time to go back to school?

  4. My last few days before school, I replaced an old watch, shoes, and some other clothes. All fun stuff so I can look and feel my best!

    I also got super excited when I found composition notebooks with all different cover designs on sale. My cupboard is now stacked with them. :-)

    As for school, it started this week with shortened days. I'm slowly getting to know my students. Next week, the real routine will begin.
