    Generally when I am making my rounds around the classroom, I often find I need something to write on as I walk, make notes in or something similar.

    I have print-outs of rosters I would like to use to make quick notes in, or to be able to print out my lesson plans to write on while I teach to remember things, or even print out grading sheets so I can enter grades on the fly.

    I've tried so far a clipboard (didn't really like it, too bulky), a notebook (nice, but again very large), and a compobook (nice size, but like the notebook it won't hold pages that aren't already in it, i.e. hand-outs that you print out).

    Binders would be too bulky again, and unwieldy. I've tried gluing printed out pages into notebooks which works pretty well, but it's kind of a lot of effort. Especially for pages that I need to change out often.

    Has anyone tried out something that works for them?

    On a similar note of teacher accessories, I also always have on a stopwatch with some 'Stain'd' sharpies clipped on them for checking off homework. I use the stopwatch to time activities or to keep track of time I am keeping the class in if we have to waste time practicing procedures.

    I'm a fan of the clipboard ... they make smaller ones for smaller tablets.

    But, my first thought for you was a digital tablet of sorts ... and iPad or something similar.

    I often carry a clipboard around the classroom. It works for me.

    Last summer I found a clipboard I absolutely love and I've been using it ever since.

    I often use a clipboard, and sometimes just carry around a post-it notes pad and take notes down on that.
