Check out these hilarious shirts from teerocket. I was drawn in by the Harry Potter collection myself but there are many, many witty designs. I've even secured that 'Straight Outta Hogwarts' t-shirt for one of you to win.
All you have to do to enter is like or share this post. I'll throw the names into the sorting hat. No, seriously, there is a sorting hat on the internet. Teachers know these things.
Anyway, I'll let the sorting hat do the choosing and then I will contact the winner via their Facebook or Twitter account.
In the meantime, visit the shop and have a good laugh. There might a Christmas present or two in there.
Hey sensory-seekers. Check out these sensory bottles for our favourite little ones. LovelyLittleOwl makes the best sensory bottles and bags out there. Stop pretending you're going to get it together and make your own because I can tell you it's harder than it looks. All my attempts have failed in leaking bags and damaged bottles so I decided to leave it to the professionals. My students and my children can now enjoy the real deal.
Thank you Claudia from LovelyLittleOwl for sending us our favourite sensory items yet. Check out her shop and get your house or your classroom sorted for Fall.
Check out these sweet DIY watercolour kits from SueRocheIllustration. Each kit comes with original art prints and detailed instructions on how to create these lovely little works of art. I must admit, I had to fight my little ones off when this sweet kit arrived in a pink folder. (Don't worry, I did eventually let them partake).
This shop contains original watercolours, mugs, totes and much more for your perusal but the DIY kits are my favourite.

If you're reading this I bet you have autism in your life. Maybe you're raising a little rockstar with autism or maybe you work in the field or maybe you just like reading about our little ninja. Either way, autism is part of your life. Because of that, you're really going to appreciate this. Ms. Frieda has just taught me, and you, that we can say goodbye to frustrating velcro communication tools because she's making communication magnets. I already had a small magnet obsession when I realized that kids absolutely adore them but now I am done for. Teaching Kindergarten with magnet letters and numbers helped my students work on their fine motor skills while mastering their curriculum goals. It makes learning more kinaesthetic and what kid wouldn't prefer to learn with a hands-on activity?
Besides all of the above great reasons to introduce these magnets into your world, there is also the fact that they are adorable and the shop owner is raising a son with autism herself. As you browse her shop you'll quickly see how this mama truly gets it.
Ms. Frieda would like to offer you a chance to win a little treat from her shop. Contact her here with your email for her mailing list (she's not a spammer, don't worry) and she'll enter your name in a drawing for a magnetic surprise. (The prize is a good one, trust me.)

I found the sweetest shop for my decal obsession. RockyMountainDecals is a Canadian-based shop with the cutest decals around. Their Canadian status makes the prices right and the shipping fast.
I use their decals to decorate my home, of course, but my new passion is to brighten my classroom with these little works of art. This world map is perfect for my Kindergarteners. I can't wait to see their little faces when they see it in the Fall.
Do you have a favourite? I added a few that are on my wish list below. Click on any of the photos to find that item in the shop. With 10% off your order all month long, you really can't beat it.
