Tuesday Teaching Ideas: Color-Coordinated Shopping with a Crayola!

Teach Junkie Creative Ideas

I'm linking up for my first ever teaching idea Tuesday!  Today's tip is all about color-smart shopping.  One thing I have realized since I started shopping for my new classroom is that NOTHING EVER MATCHES.  Turquoise at Target doesn't mean turquoise somewhere else.  Turquoise within Target doesn't mean everything matches.  Even turquoise within the SAME BRAND isn't always the same!  What is a poor color-coordinated teacher to do?

Yes, that's right, take out a Crayola!  (No I'm not crazy!)  I cannot tell you how much time this has saved me with returns.  I just put my Crayola colored pencils that match my color scheme in my purse when I go shopping and I know right away weather or not it matches!  

Don't forget to share your great teacher tips at Teach Junkie and come back TOMORROW for more great finds from my shopping trip this weekend- and a fun freebie!

Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway while you're here and join me in celebrating my new classroom!
