Back-to-School Teachers Checklist
As a lot of people are enjoying some vacation time and as we just celebrated the 4th of July , teachers are already thinking about their next school year ! They're thinking about supplies , lesson plans ,books and new ideas . In this blog post , I'll write about classroom supplies . I will offer a check list of items educators mostly need for a successful year .I hope you'll follow along .
WRITING SUPPLIES :
*PENS : You'll need pens to write notes , correct papers , etc . A blue , a black and red .
|Black , blue and red pens|
*CLASSROOM PENCILS : Another must have are classroom pencils . Even though parents are being told that their children should have their own pencils , your students will forget them or you may have a few students who can't afford to buy any . You also know that those pencils tend to quickly disappear . So a good solution to this problem is to get personalized classroom pencils . Get some that have your name and classroom number on them and have a special design on them.. They're more expensive than regular pencils , but you will end up saving money . Because they'll be easily recognizable , they will assuredly be spotted and you can prevent them from leaving the classroom .

*PENCIL SHARPENER (obviously)
*FELT PENS (They're great for drawing outlines, art project and so much more .)
*NOTEPADS : Notepads come very handy . They're a whole bunch of very useful ones . Small notepads are great to jolt something down while you might be busy and you don't want to forget . They're also great if you want to sent a quick note to another teacher or to the school office .
Substitute notepads forms (also known as "while you ere out" forms) are especially useful . It is an easy way for you to stay informed and to know what happened in your classroom while you were absent . You will also have the contact info of your favorite sub handy .
* STICKY NOTES (POST-IT NOTES) : Sticky notes are the best when you want to note something in a book without writing in the book . Write it down on the paper and stick it in the book . they are also great to stick on your desk and keep track of what you need to do that particular day .
* PLANNERS :Teacher Planners are indispensable to stay organized .
