The School Bag

I am LOVING this fun linky party!  Two of my fellow first grade teachers sell 31, so you can imagine where a chunk of my budget goes!  I carry the Organizing Utility Tote in Black Parisian on a daily basis.  If I have something special going on one day that requires more stuff, I'll carry my Large Utility Tote in Circle Spirals.  My lunch bag is from one of my sweet firsties as a first day of school present!

Inside, you will find many things.  The first being my Debbie Diller small group book.

I also have my new, fabulous Erin Condren planner!

Here are several center games and anchor charts that I have discovered in blog land:

I have a couple of alphabet books that I am reading with my kindergarten son and my firsties for when we start to talk about ABC order.

Then there is just some random stuff that I keep in the pockets:  stickers, smelly markers, and Sponge Bob Crabby Patties because the Homework Fairy (THANK YOU Rachelle at What The Teacher Wants!) will be making a visit tomorrow, and my son wanted a few to take home!!

For a final piece of randomness, I have my pick sheet for the football pool I am in at school! 

This was such a fun post for me!  I can't wait to see what everyone else has in their teacher bag!

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Thanks for playing along, friend!!! What would we do without Erin Condren *and* 31?! Ha! Have a great day!!!

  2. Love your bag!! I'm going to have to check into the 31 totes! :)

  3. Love the bag...I am ashamed to dump my bag...I am sure there will be tons o' crap in it....all I can say is I have the above items and then...lots of junk...oh and I carry TWO - THREE bags daily...many times I don't even open them...

  4. @ Tracy: You're too funny! I've been known to carry more than one as well! I actually had more junk in this bag, but was too embarrassed to share!!

  5. Love those Thirty-One totes :)

  6. Oh good...I was really beginning to think I was the only one...

  7. Oh my gosh I love your lunch bag! It is super cute! Also funny- I have the Debbie Diller book in my bag too! :)

  8. Ooooh, pretty bags. I'm a new follower :)
