Teachers' Favourite Things

Saturday, December 02, 2017

Most of us have a mental (or actual) wish list for our classrooms: the books we want to add to our libraries, the tools we want but don’t “need”, or the decorations that just aren’t in the budget. We fantasize about winning the lottery, having a successful Donors Choose list, getting a classroom makeover... or being in the audience for an episode of Oprah’s Favorite Things.

But what if Santa read your letter and bought everything on your list? 


This December, four teachers are teaming up to grant one lucky teacher’s, Wish List: Kristy (2 Peas and a Dog), Danielle (Nouvelle ELA), Lisa (Mrs. Spangler in the Middle), and Sara (Secondary Sara) are putting on their Santa hats to gift a teacher his or her Favorite Things!

Our Favorite Things!
If you need inspiration for your Wish List (or can’t wait to add it to your shopping cart now), here are the items I would add to MY wish list.
  1. Scotch Thermal Laminator
  2. Paper Mate Flair Pens 
  3. Scotch Storage Packaging Tape
  4. Hilroy 1 Subject 3 Hole with Margin Notebook
On my wishlist, I would include the four items listed above because I love my laminator to make classroom posters and stations last a long time. I use my Flair pens for marking and writing in my daybook. It is important that teachers keep good quality packing tape in the classroom for classroom library book repairs and to hang up anchor charts as well as other posters. Lastly, I have tried many different list-making and note-taking apps and systems. My constant fall back is a standard notebook with a pen. These notebooks can often be found on sale during the Back to School season and work well for all list-making and note-taking tasks.
