School Supply Orders

So it is the end of the year and I am filling out the never ending paperwork and I have a question of all you lovely teachers out there!  What supply store do you order from?  I have always used School Specialty but we have been encouraged not to use them this year in light of their financial difficulties.  Now I am not sure where to order my supplies from!  I would love some of your insight!!

End of the Year Memory Book

I know everyone has their own versions of End of the Year Memory books, but I am especially excited about this one!  I came up with this idea on the spur of a moment and it was fabulous.  My memory book is an ABC book.  The kids make their own ABC book of their school year!  There is a page for each letter of the alphabet, as well as a few other pages that are always favorites (my teacher, my friends, my classroom, my autographs).  I also included some fun pages in which the kids can write about some of their favorite memories from the school year.  These pages are titled "You won't believe what happened!," "My favorite thing about first grade," and "One day in first grade."  Of course I have also included pages for the other grades as well!

So I wasn't sure at first how my kids would do with some of the letters. You know, some of those letters can be difficult to come up with ideas.  But look at this!

Here is our class brainstorm for the letter E:

 I am so excited about this memory book, that I am going to give it away!  Just enter in the rafflecopter below!

Flash Freebie like a Rock Star (#4)

I am little late on this post.....sorry!  I have had an exhausting day!!  This week is spirit week and we have been getting our kids psyched about taking their tests next week (I know, no one in their right mind would get excited about that, but we try!).  So today was Rock Star Day and our pep rally!  We had SO much fun!

What do you think?

Ok, so here is your freebie!  Today it is my Equal/Not Equal Addition Equations.  I think that this pack has helped my students with getting that deeper understanding of addition/subtraction than anything else!  Be sure to check it out!  If you download it, please leave me some feedback!

And don't forget to enter my giveaway below.  Only one more day!
