Teacher Week-Must Haves

Welcome to Teacher Blogger Week!
Here are the things I MUST have to function in my classroom:
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)  Clipboard--I never lose this thing.  I keep a current week's lesson plans, a student checklist, individual student pull-out schedules, and to-do list pages.
4)  Teacher Info.--Stuff that lets your kids know who you are and what you love.  Dodgers, my Aunt, and other random trivia about Miss Foote.
5)  Clorox--do we really need an explanation for why this is a must have?
6) Staple Remover--Seriously the best tool ever.  Whenever I use the squeeze kind of removers I would ruin papers.  This kind just slides between the paper and the staple.  So much easier.
7)  Breakfast--We start school at 7:45 and don't go to lunch until 12:15....This is a must!
8) Scentsy Warmer~because the room should smell amazing!
Your turn!  What must you have for your classroom survival?
Happy Monday,

  1. I think breakfast is my favorite meal! I've gotta have it, too! Your Sentsy Warmer looks an awful lot like a baseball! I'm going to get one of those...I want to appeal to all their senses!
