Summer time is here! Many teachers are already preparing their classrooms for the new school year. Themes, planning, stationery, printables, decorations – your head is swimming with all of the new possibilities for September. Here’s a quick list of the most poplar classroom stationery that are available at most stationery stores or teacher supply stores. I got these links from Amazon.
Scented Markers (Mr. Sketch). Students love them and you’d know that you kids were using them by the little colored dots on their noses!
Laminators. I use my laminator to personalize my classroom with theme accents that really pop when they are laminated. It’s very handy for name tags, posters, labels, charts, write-on-wipe-off worksheets, flash cards and so on. I prefer the Scotch Thermal Laminator.
Highlighters. Aside from the regular highlighters, I love assorted fluorescent ones and I recently discovered that there are erasable highlighters too! I trust Sharpie highlighters because they do not smear the pen ink on the paper, everything remains neat!
A bookshelf that neatly shows off the covers of the books. This one does not take up much space but it holds a lot of books.
|Post-It Notes||Post-It Flags||Table Top Sorters|
|Desktop Organizers||Binder Clips||Card Stock for Printables|
I had to add the card stock – I like to print card games and task cards onto the card stock rather than regular paper for reasons explained in this blog post. Every teacher has their own style. I’m not overly picky about what I use. As long as I have a few ergonomic things that make my life easier, I feel prepared and ready to take on anything!
