Back to School in a Flash {Teacher Faves}

I'm joining some wonderful teacher bloggers for a fun back to school linky. This week focuses on teacher favorites that make us happy. I've narrowed it down to three things that either make my teaching life easier or just plain make me happy!
This one is a no-brainer and most of you probably already own it. Although I hate to think of the environmental impact of this particular product, it certainly has made my teaching life easier!
A few years ago, I gave up drinking pop (or soda or Coke or whatever you non-Midwesterners might call it). I found myself using disposable water bottles for my Crystal Light, which really didn't do much for my budget or the environment. I bought this little lovely and use it constantly. It keeps my water cold for a long time, and it's just so pretty!
This guy comes in handy when I'm handing out papers for student binders, 3-prong folders, or filing away my own papers. The sound it makes is music to my ears!
I love Sharpie pens because they don't bleed and come in a variety of colors. Not a fan of using ballpoints that don't write smoothly.

Link up your own favorites!


  1. Yes! The laminator! I forgot that in my must haves (but chocolate made the list...haha!). Great must haves BBB. :)

  2. Those are my favorite pens too! I am OBSESSED with them. I love how fine they are. Last summer my laminator broke and I went out at 9:30 at night to get a new one #teacherproblems
    Thanks for linking up.

  3. I have the same laminator and LOVE it! I taught my children how to laminate for me! I think I need to go get some Sharpie pens. I love my Flair pens, but I am willing to branch out!

  4. I need to get a laminator, thanks for the recommendation. Sharpie pens are my second favorites next to Staedtler pens. I am a real pen hoarder.

  5. Amen for your electric hole punch. Seriously, BEST invention. I love having everything hole punched and this is the way to go! Thanks for linking up!!!

  6. Would you believe that I actually don't own a laminator? For the first time in my life, I've been wishing I had one all summer (probably because I haven't gained access to my new building yet).


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I reply back by email, so please make sure you have that option enabled. Have a great day!
