My First "Back to School" Purchases for My New First Graders!

About Me

My photo
Welcome! I hope to use this blog to share some of the amazing things my class and school does to make learning fun! I have been teaching for 15 years already! I started teaching 3rd grade in a Parochial School, then I was hired to teach 1st grade for three years, was moved to 5th grade for 2 years, and then came back to 1st grade in the district where I attended school. I love that I'm able to give back the the school district that guided me to become the teacher I am today! I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, certified 1-8; a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction; and my Administrator License Pre-K-12.

Shopping for Crayons!

Thanks to Amy at Teaching is Sweet!

I was in search of bulk crayons and was having a hard time finding the colors I needed to refill my crayon organizer...

She advised me to check out and search for "custom boxes".  From there, I was able to select the colors I needed and built some custom boxes. 

Visit Crayola's website by clicking here.
Each custom box was $10.99 and I ended up creating 3 boxes.  Then, on a whim, I was like, "I wonder if there are any promotional codes out there for Crayola products," and I found one!  If you enter crayola20 at checkout, you receive a 20% discount!  Problem solved!


  1. I love the organizer!
    It was WalMart I saw boxes of crayons that were only one color.

  2. That organizer is a lifesaver for me! I haven't seen those at our Walmart...I'll check today!
