Just Can't Live Without Linky

Dragonflies in First is having a fun linky party.  And I just can't resist a good party!

Simply share the things you "just can't live without" in your classroom.  Here goes:

1)  Books~Every classroom needs a great library so kids have access to good books everyday!  Label it, teach kids how to use it, and talk about it all the time!

2)  The Tiny Transition Music Box--it plays Take Me Out to the Ballgame and lets students know when to transition from one thing to another or switch from session 1, to 2, to 3, during Reader's Workshop.  The kids are fascinated by it and it plays simply by winding it on the desk.

3) Lighting~I am not a fan of fluorescent lighting, so the more I can use anything other way to light the room, bring it on!  There are lamps around the room and thank goodness for the windows that run the length of the classroom!

I really needed to do five, so here are the two runners up that didn't make the top 3.
Pinterest~so many brilliant treasures to be discovered there.
Scentsy Warmer~because I like a room to smell like cookies!

Happy Monday!

  3. How cute is that music box?!
    I'm so jealous of your natural light. I have windows, but they are heavily tinted... so I can't count on them for light.
