I've narrowed my favorites down to the top 3 things that make my school year go a little bit smoother...and a lot more fun!
Papermate Flair pens are my GO TO pens for grading! I've never had an issue with them bleeding through the paper and the colors are also so bright and vibrant! They *almost* make me believe that grading papers can be fun!!
This one is pretty self-explanatory...and I think most teachers already own one of these. But a laminator is one item that helps keep my sanity during the school year! We teachers spend so much time finding and creating new resources/games/activities for our students to engage in throughout the year...and they are SO ROUGH on those resources! A laminator provides long lasting fun of all resources for many students to come!
Most teachers would agree that having a water bottle handy throughout the day is a good idea. It's good to keep hydrated and once you find that you've been talking all. day. long you are going to want some water close by. My favorite bottles are the Tervis Tumblers. They keep ice frozen and water cold long after many other bottles do. I own multiple Tervis Tumblers...of various sizes. I highly recommend them as a school 'necessity!'
What items are your Teacher Faves? What do you find is a "must have" in the classroom??
