Back to School Bonanza Day Two:$50 Staples Giveaway!

Hey friends!  I hope this post finds you in great Monday madness spirits! 😉  Today I’m sharing some of my back to school must-haves from Staples and giving away a $50 Staples gift card for day 2 of the Back to School Bonanza!  My first must-have is my Scotch laminator!  Especially over the summer I do a lot of laminating at home!  My Scotch laminator hasn’t let me down yet!  During the school year I will do the majority of my laminating at school, but when at home or during the summer it’s just me and my laminator….well, who am I kidding- -my husband and the laminator HA!
Up next… CARDSTOCK!  Confession…my first year of teaching I didn’t put anything on cardstock..I literally had no idea what it was HAHAHAHHA!!!!  That is hilarious right?  So, now it’s a must!  I am just so confused when I go into Staples to buy my cardstock…like can there just be one “regular” cardstock…I have no idea what “pound” or whatever that it’s called!
Shipping labels!  Shipping labels?  I use a A LOT of shipping labels during back to school time.  I print out a label for each kiddo for when I greet them in the morning and then I have them a new “fresh” label at the end of the day.  Each of our kiddos have to have a transportation label along with address in case they are a bus rider! EEK!  I just got nervous talking about transportation labels.  I literally hold my breath that first day {after I checked over my dismissal log 100 times!}
Am I the only one obsessed with sheet protectors?  Now with my KinderLiteracy units I was being good and placed 4-5 sheets in each one…so I did cut my habit down slightly! I also like to store my literacy centers and math centers within them as well!
And what would teaching be without Mr. Sketch Markers?  I am so sad that Staples did not tell these when I was a kid…can you imagine!  I wanted my own projector and Mr. Sketch markers! AHHH!
