Treasure Map for Teachers - #3

My inspiration for this edition of Treasure Map for Teachers is this  little goodie I got in the mail.

It's the Oriental Trading "Teacher's Back-to-School Guide"!  I've seen sections of Oriental Trading devoted to school supplies, but never a whole catalog!  Let me share some of my favorites with you!  The item numbers are included below the pictures

This is an "All About Me" poster shaped like an owl!  So cute!  This is a great project for the first week.  I like to decorate the hallway with them in time for parent orientation.  They are so affordable at $8.25 for 30 posters. 

 These little clothespins are perfect for finding the owners of papers without a name.  My kids know that if they don't find a home by the end of the day, they will be recycled!  I couldn't make them at $5.00 for 24 clothespins!

These labels are a must have!  They come in all different types of themes....Superheroes, Bees, Space, Stars, Animals Prints, etc.  I use them for name tags and anything else that needs a label.  The best part is the price....$4.99 for a roll of 100 labels.  


 This is a scratch-off reward that you can create for your students!  Just write in the reward of your choice, then cover it with a sticker that can be scratched off!  Genius!  Who knew there was such a thing as scratch off stickers?  I can't wait to try these!  They are $5.25 for 30 rewards.  

A few other bargains to mention...
  • Hundreds of pencil designs available - $4.25 for 2 dozen
  • Dry erase sleeves - $12.99 for a dozen
  • Alphabet tiles (like Scrabble or Bananagrams) - $10.00 for 80
  • Highlight reading strips - $4.00 for 24
Now is the time to shop as quantities are limited as we get closer to the fall!  

Please leave feedback if you are enjoying this series!


  1. Thank you for posting the clothespins! I made a "no name" poster with hot glued clothes pins, but it didn't last the year before the clothespins fell off. Adding to my 2014-2015 classroom wish list now :)

  2. Those clothespins are super awesome! I was going to make a cute cork board thing for them, but might go with the magnets instead. Thanks!
