Wednesday Wisdom

It is time for another Wednesday Wisdom.  I am so glad we decided to host this linky.  I have learned so many tips and tricks of teaching.
Before I begin the topic this week, I need to announce the winner of my Attention Grabbers pack.  I used the random generator and the winner is...  Oh' Boy Fourth Grade!  Congratulations!!  I will be emailing you tomorrow.
The topic this week is "Can't Live Without".  What resources, products or teaching tools can you not live without in your classroom?  There are several items in my classroom that I can not live without.  So let's get started...

#1 Flair Pens:  I use them for almost everything.  I color-code my lesson plans, grade papers, write notes to parents and even label student supplies with Flair pens.
#2 Scento Markers:  I enjoy writing on student papers with Scentos.  The best part is when they walk to their mailbox smelling their paper.  No matter what I wrote on the paper... they still walk off smiling.  :)
#3 Lunch Pictures:  I know I have posted about these lunch pictures before, but I can't tell you how much it helps with my morning routine.  It sets the tone for the day when all students know exactly what is expected as soon as they arrive into the classroom.
#4 Color Word Signs:  Stephany made these color signs.  I refer to them all the time.  Students need them when writing, so I put them in various places of the classroom.  I keep a set by our calendar, word wall and writing center.  This set is so useful because their are several sizes and shapes included.


#5 Document Camera:  If you don't have a document camera, you need to get one.  I model writing on it daily.  I also use it for modeling with math manipulatives.
#6 Vera Bradley Identification Wallet:  I keep a few dollars, my key-card, my teacher id and my classroom door key all in this one wallet.



#7 Days of the Week Jumbo Clips:  I purchased these at the local teacher store.  They are two-inches wide.  I can not wait to put them to use.

#8 Plastic Document Holders:  These are awesome for station work.  They are durable and last forever!  The clear ones are great because you can put the covers for your in with your station and you can fit them right down in your filing cabinet!
What products can you NOT live without in your classroom.  Link up with your "must-haves"!

  1. I love the idea of color coding your lesson plans. I started Tip Tuesday at my blog. I hope it was okay that I linked my tip from that post. :)

  2. I love the lunch time choices, too, but of course you already knew that! And I will be heading to my local store that sells Vera now because I think I need that wallet! Does the document camera connect to your Smartboard? I'm not totally sure I know how it works, but it sounds great!
