It's Here!

Every summer I wait on that special email from Vista Print where brochures are FREE, and there's FREE shipping on orders over $25.  I finally got that email today.  The offer is only good for 48 hours, so I've been busting to get on my computer and get to work.  However, I'm staying at a place where there is almost no Internet connection, so it's been a slow process.  Fortunately I've lots of things over the past several years, and it's all in my portfolio, so I haven't had to recreate the wheel on most of my goodies.  I won't bore you with everything, but I'll share some of my favorites.

I use this for my Homeworkopoly Board.  I write the questions on the back of the card.

 This is the inside of a brochure I made for our open house.

I place these inside my treasure chest and write various rewards on them (sit by a friend for the day, use a pen, chew gum for a day, etc.)  They're all in sealed envelopes, so the prize is a surprise.  

I love, love using these for my students' make-up work when they're absent.
This is my documentation notebook that I write in all year long. 

This is what I give to students who have an especially clean desk.  The Clean Desk Fairy sprinkles a little glitter on the desk and leaves behind her calling card.  This makes the student's day!
I'm sure I'll be back for more, but I've got all my essentials taken care of.

I didn't get the same offer. :(
I would love to make some fun classroom creations!
I tried homeworkopoly last year and just couldn't make it work for my kiddos. I love your chance cards! So much more fun!

Oh I remember when I first heard about Vistaprint about 3 years ago, and you could order stuff for free and just pay the shipping! I loved everything I got from Vistaprint. And looking at your creations- AWESOME! Did your Documentation book come from there too? I had no idea they did journals like that!

I've seen Vistaprint mentioned but never actually looked at their website. I guess you know what I'm doing now... :) Thanks!

So cute!
I've heard about all of the fun one can have on Vistaprint but have never tried or used it! This might be the year for me! :)
Thanks for sharing!

I found your blog on TBA, too! I'm teaching 3rd grade, but for the first time I'll be the only section! I love using Vistaprint for things in my classroom. I'm going to borrow your notebook for documentation from them. I've always used store bought ones. Check out my Whole Brain Teaching blog:
