Some friends are focusing on school items and others are sharing personal must-haves with you. I am here today and tomorrow with a little of both!
To try to keep as germ-free as possible, we teachers wash our hands a lot! The commercial grade soap and sandpaper (I mean paper towel) are so hard on hands. One big necessity is to have my own supplies at my sink. I bring in a bottle of antibacterial soap and a soft hand towel that I take home and wash at the end of the week.
I like to play music in the classroom while the students work on projects or writing. I enjoy listening to music during my planning time too. One necessity is my iPod Shuffle and this nifty little bluetooth speaker from Brookstone.
I love my chart stand! This beauty has a dry erase board, a pen tray and some colorful bins to keep supplies in.
You can also see my teacher rocking chair. This was my Duvalier glider from my baby's room that I dragged into school. I bring in all of my own colorful task chairs too.
In a room full of cinder block, Stikki Clips from Lakeshore are a definite necessity!
When the heater kicks on in November, nothing else keeps my displays up.
Colorful Flair pens and a stash of teacher stationery supplies are a must-have for me!
With plenty of holiday crafts in the next few weeks, chubby brushes and some fun plastic bowls from IKEA are my most-used art supplies.
Another November necessity is having a ton of Christmas ideas and activities in mind to begin shopping for and prepping for ahead of time to get ready for the very busy month of December!
I don't know what I ever did without my document camera and SMART Board. This has to top the list!
I feel very thankful for my classroom full of wonderful supplies and necessities that make this a great place to work and learn!
I hope you got some good ideas for your classroom too!
Be sure to stop by and see what my friends are sharing!
