Hobby Lobby, Hobby Lobby! I can honestly say I love this store because it has every decoration and everything I’ll ever need for any craft or project. Although I really love going to Hobby Lobby for decorations whether it’s seasonal decor or home decor, this time around I went to Hobby Lobby for some school supplies! As most of you know, I am going to begin my internship student teaching this month…ahhh nerve wrecking! Since I will be student teaching I thought I should pick up some supplies and Hobby Lobby was the perfect place for this.
I NEED a clipboard. When I did my junior field which was when I was teaching only once a week, I would always walk around checking homework and taking attendance on a piece of paper that I had printed out with the students names on it. I made my life very difficult by not having a clipboard. I will not be doing that mistake again because this time I bought a clipboard; not just any clipboard though. This motivating clipboard is also a notepad, if you open it up it has papers in there which is perfect for writing down little notes to self as I teach.

Post- Its & Gold Clips
Little reminders constantly pop in and out of my head throughout the day so having post it notes will be great to get all my thoughts in one place. I got post it notes, both the big padded kinds where I can write on and also the little skinny ones which will be perfect for marking pages in textbooks. Obviously, with teaching, you get a lot of paper work and therefore binder clips are a must! I opted for gold binder clips to match with the writing on my clipboard
Pens & Case
Okay, so I actually purchased the writing utensils from Staples because it was cheaper there but I did get the gold pencil case from Hobby Lobby! As you see, I bought white out, which I will definitely need while grading, sharpies, highlighters and colored pens. I grade in colorful pens like pink, purple, green, and neon blue instead of red.
I’ll be honest with you…these little notebooks are more for blogging than they are for student teaching. I don’t know about you, but as I stroll throughout my day, I constantly have these ideas flowing through my head for blog posts, but then I don’t write them down and I forget them. What better way to solve this issue of forgetting than by having a notebook with you at all times?! The notebooks came in a pack of 3 and they are small enough and perfect to carry around in a purse.
