Here's the majority of the STUFF.
Still working on my Teacher Toolbox. I think I'm going to use the numbered drawers for students to store their ipod earbuds or something.
My upcycled PALS boxes and JUNK.
I can't wait to get into my classroom if for no other reason than to get this STUFF out of my house. Not that I'm going to have room for it in my room either but I'll deal with that later. I've been telling myself that it's OK to buy all this stuff this summer since most of my things are 5 years old and need replacing. Ugh.
Plus for some reason I decided that mid-August was a good time to start a total kitchen remodel. The guys were at the house taking measurements today and couldn't believe I bought all this stuff for my classroom. Both having school-aged children, I could see it click in their heads that their children's teachers probably had similar piles sitting in their dining, living, and TV rooms. Maybe they will be a little more generous this year to their teachers. You're welcome whoever you are.
Oh and I also bought these. But they only take up space on my feet. This is another back to school tradition of mine--new slippers for the new year!
