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 pads...one 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.

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!
