Okay, so I have seen a lot of people doing some summer shopping. I haven't done much yet, but I have been looking. Here are some good deals I have seen:
Binders: Walmart has some of the Avery Durable binders in 4 packs for around $15 online. That is an awesome price! Sometimes the Durable binders are like $5-$8 each depending on where you buy them.
A 3 subject notebook: I like using a 3 subject notebook for meetings instead of keeping staff meeting notes in a teacher binder. Usually your teacher binder is heavy and bulky to drag to every meeting. A notebook is much easier. I also like a notebook with pockets to put all the handouts from the meetings. I love the Spine Guard 3 subject notebook at Staples. It is on sale right now for like $2.50 off. I bought a new one yesterday. I use the first section for meeting notes, the second for planning ideas, and the third for professional development. It even comes with little flags.
Pens: My sister-in-law introduced me to Injoy pens. They are cheap, come in lots of colors, and write very smooth.
Can you tell I love school supplies...for myself? Lol...I also just told my husband I was taking a break from posting tonight. Oh, well - I wanted to share some of my favorite supplies.
Side note: How does one break into the guest blogger world? I think it would be fun to be a guest blogger or have guest bloggers. Would anyone be interested in being a guest blogger here? What about doing a guest blogger series on differentiation or anecdotal records - two things I find to be teacher challenges?
P.S. It looks like I won a Versatile blogger award. Yay! So, now I need to think of where to pass that on to.
