Oriental Trading Company Back to School and Giveaway
We are back in school now. I spent several weeks working on my classroom and lessons, but the whole process was much easier thanks to Oriental Trading Company. I also have a great giveaway for you as well.
I have received these items at no cost in exchange for an honest review; these words and opinions are 100% my own. I received no compensation for this post.
Several years ago I read that celebrating student birthdays is a great way to build relationships as students might not get any other celebration. This year I got several packages of birthday pencils so that I can give each student one on their special day. I will add a cute printable tag for a quick gift.
Extreme Dot to Dot
One of my goals for this year is to create collections of puzzles, games, and activities for students who finish early. I don't want any wasted class time, so engaging add-on activities like these Extreme Dot to Dot books will keep their minds active. I like the Legends and Lore one especially since it fits well with my English curriculum.
How any teacher can survive without this magical stuff is beyond me. I have two white boards in my room, so I put magnet tape on everything. This roll has a peel-and-stick side that makes it easy to attach to posters and documents.
I added the magnet tape to some cute chalkboard clips that I had for a quick way to hang papers on my board. Right now they are holding our behavior matrix and the lunch menu.
It can be cut with regular scissors; no special tools are needed.
Plastic and Metal Scissors Set
This year will be the first year that I will have enough scissors for everyone in even my largest class. While these plastic and metal scissor sets are not big enough for my largest high school students, they are fine for most of my younger students. This is such a fantastic deal at less than $5 for a set of 12 in six colors. I unpacked them and dreamed of a rainbow themed classroom.
Bulletin Board Supplies
One of my favorite things to get from Oriental Trading Company is bulletin board supplies. I love their fadeless paper and have rolls in black and purple (two of my classroom colors). They also have a massive assortment of borders like the two I have used below.
Prize: $25 Oriental Trading Gift Card
