Back to School with Oriental Trading

I can't believe I am already setting up my classroom and waiting for rosters to be settled!   Summer went a little fast but now the brain needs to start thinking about the school year!   There is so much prep for teachers to do before the first day of school!   I am so thankful that Oriental Trading has many great items that I can get and some of the best prices around!  They have items for your reading nook, crafts supplies, organization, and so much more!  

 A few of the items I picked up for my classroom include some motivational tools such as the bracelets above and the finger hand cheers!  Then I also picked up some posters for my classroom and organization storage items.  

 The brain break cards will be used often as a warm up in the morning or between tasks throughout the day.  
These foam finger hands are going to help keep kids thinking positive.  I am currently working on my thesis and it is all regarding positive thinking and words so I will for sure be utilizing these to help my students stay positive.  

There are many borders and posters to choose from and these are a couple I picked out!   SUCH GREAT CHOICES for a AWESOME price! 

I also picked up some of these dry erase clings for the tables.   I am so excited to use them!   I know I will use them daily with my 95% curriculum.  

I am getting close to being ready for students in a couple weeks but now I must soak in some more sunshine before it's too late!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
