Hello all! So I am starting my first teaching job (2nd Grade) in the fall and I just got my budget for my classroom. I am so excited, but not really sure how to best prepare. I have $300 to spend and I have to go through School Specialty. I haven't seen my classroom yet and I'm not going to be able to before I place my order, which is due by July 8th. My principal sent an email stating that no supplies except for copy paper will be provided. I have no idea what is in my classroom, but I want to make sure I make the most of my budget. Some have suggested focusing on consumables since I can't take them with me if/when I leave. Any advice would be appreciated!
