There's a really great restaurant called Newk's and one of the things I like is that they have these great cups! These aren't they're to-go cups; these are what they give you even when you eat there. The first time I went, I think I spent about five minutes being excited about the cup :) So then I got to thinking. I'm using some chalkboard labels in my classroom and how great would these work with that theme? They're about eight inches tall - great for storing markers, rulers, pointers or pencils. I'm learning a big part of setting up a classroom and planning activities is all about taking inspiration from just about anything - even unofficial "to-go" cups!
