Summer Shopping Linky!

You can imagine my sheer delight when I realized that someone was doing a linky that, despite my absence from writing (I was DEFINITELY still reading your blogs) posts, I can STILL participate it!  :D WHOOT!

Okay, beginning with Oriental Trading Company I loaded up on some flip flop/beachy items for gift bags next year.  I had a total of 51 students this year with three groups that I taught and some from my homeroom also being in either my first or second period reading classes.  That got REAL expensive when purchasing items throughout the year.  NOW I have pencils, stampers, key chains, erasers, and bracelets to give to my munchkins for next year:
I downloaded these last year, but never got around to making bracelets so I'm excited to have purchased bracelets from Oriental Trading that will work!  <source>

 I believe I got these at the Dollar Tree, but I can't be sure.  I was SO excited to see them and am not sure just how I will incorporate them into my them/gifts, but I know that they are GREAT FUN (yes, actually, I have always been easily entertained...why do you ask?) to blow up.

I don't remember where I got the salt water taffy, but I've seen it incorporated into other beach themes and somehow escaped me as an option.  NO MORE! ;)

Target purchase on sale

AC MORE--I've spent several weeks picking these adhesive embellishments up to add to my Tuesday Folders.  I've hot glued brads (and in many instances, some of my skin cells from my fingertips) and they will be added to my Nicky Folders which are used for weekly communication.  I add the behavior sheet to the middle so that it doesn't get lost among papers that need to stay home or be returned to school.

Dollar Tree purchases that will likely go in my rewards bin

On sale at AC More and I will either attach them to pencils or Tootsie Roll Pops for small birthday treats

I just ordered these from Pick Your Plum, too.  I'm not sure how I'm going to use them, but at that price, I couldn't wouldn't resist!
I also ordered these from Pick Your Plum and am undecided if I will use them to make Christmas or Mother's Day gifts with my students. Again, a GREAT price...I just LOVE that site!
Probably not last, and CERTAINLY not least, these are shower curtain hooks that I'm hoping will hold clipboards onto my ledge of my white board.  This will be a potential student display area! :D

Well, I believe that's all for now..."for now" kinda worries me there because the summer has only just begun!  Ah well, such is the life of a teacher, eh?  What have YOU bought so far?
