one of my favorite Lakeshore resources

If I had an unlimited teacher budget or won the teacher lottery (umm… that should exist) – I would promptly go to and purchase every single item there. Yep. Every one. Wouldn’t look back. I know it’s over priced and I know that many of the items I could probably make but there is some especially and perfectly amazing about their tasks. First of all, obscenely cute. Second of all, (and this is a close second in importance to the cutest) everything fit backs into the container they came in. Can I get an AMEN? Can someone please second my unnecessary frustration over trying to jam back the containers of a game or set of manipulative back into the container that they somehow fit into earlier. It’s like squeezing my post Christmas eating butt into skinny jeans. Yea.

This Question of the Day resource is one of my favorites:


We use it morning group and it is perfect for my less verbal students to work on answering questions and identify their name!


See look! How amazing is the organization of this box. AHHHH:


There are sets of questions on each topic so you can accomplish some thematic social units:


Anyone as obsessed with with Lakeshore as me? What’s your must have product?!


  1. I have to ban myself from looking at school supply magazines because I want to buy everything! So, I appreciate your teacher lotto & sharing about!

    I have started following your blog and find your posts helpful and fun. I’m a sped teacher as well and work with a variety of disabilities, and your posts and work you put out are awesome! Thanks!!

  2. Lakeshore things are durable too! That is something I definitely love about all their stuff! I am going to have to look into this. I love the organization of it too!

  3. YES! I’m a homeschooling mom and I too could purchase it all and know it would work. And everything is so durable. I just wish there were less expensive options for those of us who only need the materials to stand up to our own children, not years of classrooms full of them. But as well organized and thought out as the Lakeshore stuff. Sigh. I had to laugh when I read this post because I feel the same way… 🙂

  4. Haha – glad to hear I am not the only obsessed one 🙂

  5. Aw thanks Alexis! Glad to hear you have a similar shopping problem as me haha!

  6. Unfortunately a Lakeshore store opened about 20 minutes from my house I am usually frothing at the mouth by the time I reach the entrance!

  7. Oh no! I would be in TROUBLE if I were you, haha!

  8. Make your own….. It’s all pretty simple stuff
    Markers- index cards – maybe some free art and glue!!!!

  9. I live in Canada. I need the French version on it. I cannot find it online. Any suggestions? A school has it here.

  10. Hmm… sorry I’m not sure where to find French language resources. I will look around!
