Teacher Week- Must Have Monday

This is my first day back and our staff development week is in full swing!

I am also excited to announce, that this week is also Teacher Week at Blog Hoppin'!

As I make the transition back into early mornings and informative meetings, my mind drifts to some must have items to that make coming back to school so much fun!

Here are a few of my MUST HAVES for the upcoming school year:
It is a most definite must have and at the top of this teacher's list! 

I can not wait for my kiddos to be able to use this fabulous pencil sharpener! It will definitely cut down on the noise and won't interrupt my small group lessons. Not to mention it sharpens pencils (even the not so great ones) beautifully.

Inkjoy Pens by Papermate
I L.O.V.E office supplies. 
These pens are my latest obsession and they are amazing and super affordable!
They will make grading papers a little more exciting!

My Scotch Thermal Laminator
I am so happy that my mom gave this to me! I have gotten so much use out of it and lat night it one of my classroom projects! Sometimes when I laminate using the school laminator, it tends to come apart. I was so worried that my color copies for my alphabet would be ruined until I ran the pieces through my Scotch Thermal Laminator. I was so excited! It sealed the open ends and my alphabet looks awesome! {Not to mention, I didn't have to print all those color copies again!}

Blogging...and other Technology
I have been blogging for a couple of years now and am so happy that I discovered this amazing way to gather and share ideas and collaborate with other teachers from all over the world. It has brought a fresh of breathe air into the lessons that I teach, sparked a creativity to develop new engaging lessons and to share as much as possible with all of you! 

Now it's your turn!
Share your fabulous must haves for the new school year!

I think I need to make an investment! I believe that pencil sharpener is calling my name! SMILES and stop by anytime!

I was just going to say the same thing. Where did you purchase that sharpener? Better than electric?
