Christmas in July!

Classroom freebies

It's like Christmas in July! I know everyone is gearing up for back to school---and the cash and credit cards and getting extra exercise in the process. I heard something on TV last week that has stuck with me. It was a commercial of some sort, and a teacher was referencing how much money she spent on her own classroom. But, then she said:

"I may be depleting my future, but I am not depleting the future of our children."

Profound right? And exactly how we feel! We rarely stop to think twice about how much money we spend on our classroom and students because it's for the best! So, as you are shopping like crazy for your back to school supplies, enjoy all of these freebies from Manic Monday---think of it like Christmas---in July...and all year 'round!

Merry Christmas!
