Good Sunday afternoon! I’m linking up with Melissa at First Grade Smiles for her Teacher Wishlist Linky.
She asked us to list our faves-things that we buy for our classroom every year and also list our wishlist-things we’d like to have for next year. So here goes…
POCKET FOLDERS: At the beginning of the year, I always stock up on these. I buy these for my students’ homework folders. Some students bring their supplies and some don’t, so I always buy these. Plus, Office Depot always has some great deal on them. This year I got pocket folders for 1 cent a piece and I also used my teacher discount! Can you say AWESOME!
NOTECARDS AND PAPER: This is a no-brainer, right teachers? These things get used up so much in my class!
DRY ERASE MARKERS: Another no-brainer but definitely a must-have each year!
CRAYONS AND MARKERS (CLASSPACK): Okay I love the classpack! My students sit in groups and each group has a team basket with supplies like pencils and erasers. Each group also have group crayons. At the beginning of the year I use the crayons from the classpack to put in each group. Thankfully, my principal has always bought this for us each year and there are so many crayons in the pack that you really only need one pack per 2 years (maybe) depending on how many you use each year.
MAVALUS TAPE: What would I do without my mavalus tape? It’s marvelous! (Perhaps that’s where they derived the name) I use this ALL OVER MY ROOM! It’s great because it won’t peel of the paint on the walls.
LAMINATING MACHINE: I would love to have one of these for all my center items that I create and buy. As of now, I have to visit our school aids shop or media center to laminate items. This would save me so much time (and gas).
IPAD: I was so spoiled last year, because I had three iPads in my classroom for my students to use. However, since I switched schools, I had to leave the iPads in the old classroom. So, I’d love to either receive one again or buy one (or two?!) for personal and school use.
So those are my favorite items and items on my wishlist. Before I leave, I’d like to say congrats to Kathy for this week’s Weekly Win! Have a great work week!
