Default What I purchased for the upcoming year

I love bringing stamps into the classroom and so do my students. This summer I purchased a few stamp sets exclusively for my classroom from Stampin Up:

Jolly Bingo Bits
Make a Monster
Blast Off
Outer Space (wheel)
(The last three are for any papers during our Space unit.)

I also purchased some dies for my Big Shot exclusively for my classroom:

Autumn Accents
Ornament Keepsakes
Mitten Builder Punch

As I start to relax this summer I will start to come up with ideas on using them.

Has anyone else purchased or are planning on purchasing any new crafting supplies for their classroom? How will you use them?

That sounds Awesome Lisa...I am a teachers aide at a jr high school but I have two different sixth grade reading classes that I am in charge of. During the year I like to bring some of my stamps in for special times of the year and my students LOVE to stamp! Sometimes we make Christmas cards or cards for Mother's Day! We also put together memory books at the end of the year...It's awesome to see how excited they get when we start the projects. Never thought that I would get so attached to kiddos that age but they are just my HEART!

I used stamps to make cards with kids for a nearby nursing home. The kids loved doing it, the residents enjoyed getting them. It was a win-win!
I also used stamps as a jumping off place for writing. Students would stamp/color then write a story about their picture. It was lots of fun to do and read. The kids were more willing to write when they could stamp pictures. Some complained that they couldn't draw that well and the stamping helped. This also helped those that couldn't come up with something to write about. They chose a few stamps and made up a story.

I have a CRICUT in my classroom that I got as a really good deal. The kids know I have it and keep all kinds of scrapping and paper craft stuff in my room and they stop often. I teach 9-12. I also just received a large cloth panel map of the USA with capitals, state flowers etc on it. I am going to put on bulletin board.
