My May Amazon Favorites!

Friday, June 21, 2019
It is no surprise that I have an incredible love for Amazon. 99% of my purchases are made from Amazon because it's just so convenient! I typically share my fun finds in my Instagram stories but figured I would start a monthly round up of them here on the blog, too. I am a little late with my May favorites list, but it was worth the wait because I now have an amazing graphic for these posts by the incredibly talented, Amanda Newsome of A Perfect Blend!

I used to use Amazon strictly for academic, work related, and therapy purchases. But recently I have found a love for their clothing items. Be sure to read the reviews for quality and sizing information, but they really have a great selection of clothing! My latest clothing purchase is this  twist knot waffle tank!  I bought it in the red color but I think I may need a few more colors!

I also bought these Blue Light Blocking glasses. I spend a lot of time at my computer writing reports, blog posts, and creating TpT products. My days were often ending with bad headaches. I heard about these glasses from another blogger and thought I would give them a try! I bought them in the leopard print. They are super cute (and nerdy in the best kind of way!) and have really helped with my headaches. 
I typically use a Farm Theme in therapy in June so in May I stocked up on a few extra farm toys! One activity I bought was the String-A-Farm toy. This is great for sequencing, following directions, and fine motor skills. 

I also bought some Squirting Farm Animal Bath Toys. These are fun to use for vocabulary, following directions (especially spatial concepts), and in sensory bins. 
I have been dying for an apple pen for my iPad but not willing to spend the money. After I recently saw one of Rachael's (from Texas Speech Mom) posts about her fine motor speech activity, I knew I needed one. So of course, I went to Amazon and found a great Stylus Pen for a quarter of the price of an apple pen. (My iPad case was also an amazon purchase, I know, shocker!) It comes in a ton of different color options. 

I have a lot of students this summer that are going into kindergarten or just wrapped it up. I wanted to find a fun way to work on letters and sight words so I snagged this bucket of Magnetic Letters and Numbers. Here are a few ideas on how I am using them this summer:
1. Matching letters/spelling articulation words/sight words with a magnetic cookie sheet.
2. Putting them in Easter eggs and hiding them.
3. Putting the letters in a sensory bin for the kids to search for and pull out.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know my love for books is deep. I recently just wrapped up, Brave Love. This is an inspiring story by Lisa Leonard. Lisa is a jewelry designer, a wife, and mother. One of her sons has special needs (if you follow her on Instagram you will learn lot about her sweet David). This is a very real, raw, and inspiring story of love and strength. Of the toll that is taken on your life when you don't make time for yourself and your own needs to be met. Lisa encourages us to learn how to love yourself for exactly who you are and who you were meant to be!

A personal buy I decided to treat myself with last month was this Jade Roller Massage Tool. A jade roller is used to tighten and de-puff your skin. I keep mine in the freezer and it feels amazing on my face and neck after a long day. They are under $14.00 and I highly recommend one of these for a little self care!
