What I Bought!

So I thought I'd join Blog Hoppin's linky showing all of you what I bought from TpT's Teacher Appreciation sale! Mine is a bit different. Since I don't have my own classroom yet or even know what grade I will teach, I didn't want to go too crazy buying items that are grade-specific. I'm fairly certain I will teach Kindergarten, first, or second. Hopefully first but I'm trying not to get my hopes up! Anyways, on to what I bought!

1. Erica Bohrer's Classroom Job Labels
I recommend this product because it has pretty much every classroom job! However you can also add your own jobs!

2. Reagan Tunstall's Classroom Library Labels
I love Reagan Tunstall's blog! Her classroom is my inspiration. It's so warm and inviting! Just like Erica Bohrer's job labels, Reagan Tunstall's classroom library packet has pretty much every label for every type of children's book! I also love this because it gives me more of an idea of the types of books I should have in my classroom library.

3. That's So Second Grade's Favorite Author Posters
These posters are so beautiful and colorful. They will definitely brighten up my classroom and inspire my students to read books written by the authors!

4. A Cupcake for the Teacher's editable behavior calendars
I love the idea of sending home a behavior calendar with my students. My cooperating teacher used this system and I knew I wanted to use behavior calendars in my classroom. What I love about this product is that it has space at the bottom to add behavior codes!

So that is what I bought! I hope that the next time I purchase something from TpT it will be more grade-specific....because that will mean I have a job!! :D My district STILL hasn't posted openings yet. :-/ I know it's still early but I'm so eager to be in a classroom! Other teachers have told me not to stress because they didn't get a job until the week before school started! I really hope that's not the case with me. I'd like to have a job by end of June, or at least July! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

  1. Don't worry...I know your're hearing a lot of that but it's true. I didn't get hired until beginning of August for my first job..I was stressing all summer. But jobs really do open up once school let's out. And then there's usually an influx of more jobs as the new year gets closer. Crossing my fingers for ya!

  4. I like your purchases too! You sound like you will be a fun teacher so hang in there, something will come up. Keep the word out that you are looking, even after summer starts, if need be. Our school hired two first grade teachers the second week of school because numbers were higher than expected. Thanks for sharing with your newest follower, Heather
