Secret Santa!!

I was checking my mail for days when finally a note showed up telling me I had a package at the front office. I was SO excited to pick up the box I hurried home to open it right away! A little background knowledge: I just graduated with my masters in education and will be looking for a teaching job soon. I plan for my future classroom to have a country western theme ;-) (Not sure why the pictures are so small, hoping you can click on them to make them bigger)

I could not wait to open everything up! There was tissue and wrapping paper everywhere! Here are some pictures of what I got!

Not sure how to flip the pictures but here are some stickers, some bookmarks, some certificates to give to students and a sherifs badge. I actually have something saved on Pinterest to use with a sherifs badge in the classroom for the desk police! So excited to have one! 

I ABSOLUTELY love this! It is a can wrapped in twine that I can use as a pencil holder for students. Totally western ;)

And the ABC blocks with rope and red ribbon will look adorable on a shelf or my desk! 

Here are some flashcards that I already have a list of uses that I can't wait to use them for! Also some western bandanas that i KNOW I will be able to use! So excited!

Here is a photo of everything I got! Also included were some great lesson plans and ideas to do for parents! Along with some great items that will be put to good use for lessons! 

I love everything I got SOOO MUCH!!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!! My favorite is the pencil holder!! Such a creative idea!!!!!!!


  1. Santa was good to you! It's like a classroom hope chest!

  2. What a great and thoughtful box for a teacher. I retired from teaching early, in 2005, after 28 years, and I am so glad that's how I chose to spend those years of my life. I can think of no better way to spend your time. =) Good luck with finding a job in an outstanding district with children who need your excellence.

  3. Back again to say "thank you," my sweet and generous Secret Santa! I felt so spoiled opening the gifts in the box you sent me and my scarf has gotten some great compliments too! Again, thanks so much for your generosity and thoughtfulness.

    Best of luck in your teaching job search; I know you have the heart that makes a GREAT teacher!
