Anyone who follows my blog knows how much I love Pinterest.  :)  Well maybe you have seen this idea on there about having your students or your own kids hold up a chalkboard stating their first day and what grade they are going into.  It usually looks like this.

Well as I was shopping at my favorite store today TjMaxx and look what I found.  I am soooo excited!!!!  They had all kinds of colors and sizes and I knew one of these was going to end up in my shopping cart.  :) 
What great finds have you found for back to school.  Link up with me and share a great find you will use in your classroom or a great product you created for the new school year. 
I would appreciate when you link up to add my logo at the top to your blog post or feel free to pin it.  I appreciate it.  :) 
I can not believe that August is already here.  I have so much to do and so little time to do it.  How about you????? 
 Anyway I thought I would share with you the latest from Farley over at her blog Oh Boy 4th Grade.  I love linking up and for the first time ever....LOL .... I remembered to do it on the first of the month.  There is hope !  : )  So many exciting things happening this month for me and one of them is celebrating this blog's one year anniversary.  I want to do something fun and exciting so if you have any ideas please send them my way.  I am always open to suggestions.  I had to share with you this funny picture that I found on Pinterest and I think it truly applies to me when I see a back to school ad that always tends to creep up on you in July. 

Anyway here are my thoughts for this month! 
My Back to School must haves are pretty important.  :)  I don't know about your kids but mine go through the glue sticks...we never seem to have enough throughout the year.  I love to start the year organized and ready to go.  Ideas for where papers and things will be placed always starts my year off right.  Laminating.....My name is Julie and I am addicted to laminating.  :)  I love to use my hubby gave me one as a present several years ago and I have to say it is my favorite gift....I know I need help.  ;) 
I wanted to share with you a great product that is added to my list for back to school.  It is from another Julie and I think it will be great for center work or small group work with my kindergartners. 
And if you are looking for a fun activity to start the year off check out my latest packet for a year long writing activity with your students to use in those last few minutes of the day. 
See you soon!
