My Must Haves Monday!

Hello my sweet friends,

I DID IT!!...I survived my first day of school!! I am soooo pooped right now and despite some challenges, I'd say my first day back was a success!  Here are some first day pictures of my sweeties:

Today I am linking up with Blog Hoppin' for Must Haves Monday! 
Here are some of my must haves for the school year! 

1. My Scotch Laminator:

 Let me tell you friends, this saved my behind this year. I was very pressed for time in setting up my classroom & it was fantabulous having this right at my side as I was rushing around setting everything up!!

2. My MOBI:
We don't have interactive whiteboards in my school yet, but I love letting my students use my MOBI for interactive activities in the Activinspire program. My students used the MOBI for some alphabet review on the first day of school today and loved it. They were so engaged in the activity due to the MOBI.

3. Teachers Pay Teachers

TeachersPayTeachers  - Lesson Plans,Teaching Materials and Other Teacher-Created Resources
I am just crazy about Teachers Pay Teachers!! I am in awe of all of the creative projects and games that I have come across for my classroom on this site. There are even so many things that are FREE!! It has definitely become such a wonderful addition to my teaching & I am so thankful that my students can benefit from it.

Well I'd like to stay & chit chat longer, but I'm ready for 9:00! It must be back to school time... :)

Until the next time!,


  1. I love my laminator! Now that I have it, I don't know what I did before I bought it.


  2. I think sometimes we are too funny. I totally talked about my laminator and mobi too. I hope you are enjoying most of my little ones from last year. I miss them already:(

  3. I love my laminator...well that is why I own 3. One at school and 2 at home to speed up the process. Glad your first day went well!! I have meetings all day tomorrow so I will be pooped tomorrow!!

  4. I love my Scotch laminator too. Super helpful in a pinch! Happy back to school to you!! :)
