A Chance to Win.....Yes, Please!!!!

Nothing says back to school like school supplies.  I love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils and the sight of opening a box of 64 crayons all perfectly lined up.  As a kid, I didn't even want to use my crayons because I didn't want to mess with their beautiful perfection.  You are a teacher, you know exactly what I am talking about.  :)  

To prepare for school this year, I had a few school supplies that were on my MUST HAVE list.  I have a desk drawer full of pens, but Flair pens are my absolute favorite.  I have ALL sorts of colors!  They are perfect for grading papers.  I just LOVE to write with them!!!  

SO, why I am telling you all of this????  Because I have teamed up with Rachel Lynette from Minds in Bloom and a few other blogging buddies to offer this AWESOME give away for teachers.  How would you like to win a $200 gift card from Staples?  I am sure the answer is YES!!!!!  So for chances to win, all you have to do is enter with the Rafflecopter below.  

A few rules for you to remember:  
* You must be a U.S. resident to enter.  
* Although I am hosting this with a group of several bloggers, you need to only enter through one of the blogs because the Rafflecopter is the same for all blogs.  :)  

Good luck to you all!!!!  I would love to hear what you would purchase if you won the $200 gift card from Staples!  Leave your comments below.  :)  

Thanks for stopping by and entering!  


  1. I don't even know where to begin! I love Staples! I'd probably start by looking at more storage, but I've been wanting to buy an electric hole punch and need a new heavy duty stapler (mine died last year). Of course, if I do that, I might have a little left over for my pen addiction! :)

  2. Flairs, for sure! Some new binders, Glitter Gel Pens, stickers (man, I LOVE stickers!), a really good pair of scissors.

    Awesome giveaway!!

  3. I would buy an electric pencil sharpener! I also love pens and pencils! I would just go hog wild!

  4. I'd put it towards a laser printer. I'm getting sick of the dull colors on my cheap-o printer!

  5. That's a great idea! I use fancy pens for "expensive words" in my room. When students write a descriptive word, they can use a pen. Thanks!


  6. Just found your blog, thanks to honorable mention from Third Grade Tidbits & her shout-out about your Reading & Language notebooks..gonna be buying those today!

  7. I'd use it as a downpayment on an iPad for use in the classroom or I might just go crazy and print everything I've been pinning and buying over at their printing center!!

  8. I would buy markers, colored pencils, crayons, and composition books for my class so we can make our Interactive reading and language notebooks look AMAZING! I would also have to buy some Papermate pens and sharpies for myself as well!:)
