My List of Rockin' Resources


This morning, I'm linking up with the sweet Kelly at the Teacher Idea Factory for her first linky party.  What a perfect idea for a linky party, as so many of us are wrapping up the year and putting in our orders for next year!  

There are lots of resources that I love in my classroom, but here would be my top five all time, can't live without items! :)

1. {my library}

  I have a pretty large library that I'm very proud of! Over the past five years, I've collected lots of books from Goodwill, Scholastic book orders, and donations from my student's families.  I always put a blurb in my welcome back packet about how if their family has any books at home they would like to donate, our room would greatly appreciate it.  

2. {chart paper}
My students and I are always making an anchor chart for something, so I always have several tablets of chart paper on my classroom order.  

3.  {my smartboard}

I use my Smartboard all day, and love everything about it.  I have a set of Sento clickers for my Smartboard but I don't use them as much as I would like.  

4. {my organization station}
 
I have my students turn in their work into their pockets when I'm collecting work for a grade.  I LOVE it.  Mine is labeled by number so I don't have to change the names each year.  On days where we have multiple tests, I just quickly pull the papers out and paper clip them together before they turn them in!

5.  {clipboards} and {dry erase boards}

I love to get my students up and out of their desks, so we use clipboards and work around the room a lot.  We use our clipboards daily!
I use dry erase boards a lot too, but this year my littles couldn't handle it.  They wanted to scribble all over their boards instead of do math work or would never put the lids on their markers properly, meaning I was constantly giving out new markers.  So I stopped using them, but I'm looking forward to *hopefully* using them a lot next year!

 What items are a must have for you in your classroom?  Link up and share!

  2. Student whiteboards are a requirement within the schoolroom. They need NO preparation, give the right laptop unit, and supply how to be a small amount greener within the schoolroom. From warm-ups to observe, these tools simply slip into any lesson. With this same, mini boards take a small amount of management. I’m up several of you're pretty dialed in with these. Simply just in case you’re trying to many new things to extend with these tools, here are some of student tips. His isn't a idea; use student numbers may be a game changer. Rick Morris brought this idea to the forefront and it’s a management tool. It helps in such a large amount of choice ways. And tools are one in all them. By labeling your mini and markers with student numbers, it will increase Student’s are a lot of doubtless to require care of those things as they're labeled because the OWNER. Sure, it isn’t their name; variety may be a shut second. Also, if a pen is lost, it always gets back to the owner due to the amount concealing on the shaft. Classmates are able to come the marker to the proper student. Finally, you're able to comprehend World Health would possibly would like a “refresher course” in correct tool use. Students LOVE the bumps on the rear of and infrequently draw or scribble on them. Essay service play most important role in student life By list the boards, students generally create a more call. And, if “forgets” the way to treat their you is able to quickly pinpoint the offender. To stay date high, I usually skip use the exacting and have them incite the desktop. I do know what you’re thinking. By fixing the method simply a scintilla, the work becomes novel once more. Student date will increase and behavior issues reduce. Though it's going to leave a small amount of film on the table, it comes right off with NO labor.
