This year I decided to change my classroom theme and I knew that Oriental Trading (as usual) would be my go-to place for Superhero things.
Take a peek at the amazing goodies I found for my classroom.
Years ago, I began using badge holders for my students' nametags. This saves me from having to handwrite or print new tags each time they're needed. In fact, it means I have nametags on hand at any given time - this is super convenient for subs during unexpected absences.
These Superhero Lanyards are perfection for my little marvels! They're bright, colorful, fun, and safe (with that breakaway clasp). Even better? I'll be able to use them year after year after year!
These Superhero Tickets are the perfect incentive for my students! Last year, I began using the Golden Ticket system. I just cut gold paper strips and laminated them, but these are SO much better! My students are super excited to earn these for random good deeds throughout the week and then turn them in on Friday for free choice selections.
These hanging swirls made the PERFECT back-to-school activity. When I handed these out, the students "OOHED" and "AAHED." They were quite obsessed with the foil swirls. I mean, why wouldn't they be?! They add so much color and pop to our classroom ceiling, all while sharing a little about each of my new marvels.
Here's a close up look of the front...
...and back of the hangers.
And, here's one more look at them on display from a distance.
What kid doesn't love stickers?? These superhero stickers will be the perfect way to say "well done" on students' papers, or right on their shirts!
I mean, how about that marvel t-shirt? Do you think my students are excited about my classroom theme? I'd say so! :)
These dry erase magnets are so versatile that I knew I needed them to be a part of my classroom. For now, I am using them to label my file cabinet drawers. They make it super easy to locate the right item the first time!
The next few items, I got for incentive rewards in my classroom. My school uses Accelerated Reader and I like to have little rewards for students who reach specific goals, but these items could also be used for birthday treats, welcome back gifts, or star student surprises - the possibilities are endless.
Can we just talk about these medals for a moment?! The quality is AMAZING! They are made of rubber with a fabric lanyard. Students will treasure them!
Whew! Those are just a FEW of the things I found for my superhero classroom. You can view the rest of the items that I have my eye on HERE on my wishlist. Here's a little sneak peek of it:
Oh my gosh, those pencils, right?! Creating a wishlist on Oriental Trading is super easy and you have the option to share it via social media, email, or even print a hard copy of it to share. Often times, at the beginning of the year especially, parents are eager to help your classroom. What an easy way to share with them some of the things you'd like to have for your classroom.
