    I'm not new to teaching, but I will be moving from Title to a classroom within the same school. I would love to know what materials teachers have in their classrooms that they couldn't live without. I've made my shopping list, but I'm curious if everything I have is what I really need or if there are things I have forgotten that teachers have found they definitely need and use. Thank you for all suggestions.

    I defn couldn't live without the following:

    tissues
    sticky poster adhesive
    lysol
    clorox cleaning wipes
    filling system (manilla folders/organizers)
    flash drive (USB storage)
    magnets if you have a dry erase board


    thats all I can think of. Basically everything to keep germs out of your room and to keep you organized. Hope this helps!

    -3 hole punch (with your name written on it!!!)
    -Paper trimmer - Spend $150 for a good one and you will never have to worry about it again. A cheap one will only frustrate you.
    -An all-in-one printer/copier/scanner - Look out for deals and you can get one fairly cheap. I got mine on clearance for $30 (down from $180!)
    -Manila folders in different colors
    -Stackable letter trays

    -Colored paper (for printers) - First, it's fun to have things printed on different colors for the kids and Second, I use goldenrod whenever I send home uber important information
    -Clipboards for every student and a nice one for yourself
    -I don't know what it's called, but it's that laminate type stuff that you can put down on top of something (like a student name strip) to protect it, but then it easily comes up. WHAT IS THAT CALLED???!!! It is a tad expensive, but well worth it. I can't stand people who use packing tape and then when it peels off, it leaves that yucky residue.
