But here are a few things I love to get every year for my room!
1. Large Post-It pad.
2. Borders from Creative Teaching Press.
3. Post-it Flags.
I purchased "Be a Guided Reading Guru" from Lesson Plan SOS last summer and then didn't get to use it because our district adopted a brand new curriculum. This year, I am going to use it. In her packet, she uses the different colored flags to correspond with a thinking strategy for reading. I would love to try it, since it seems much more simpler than things I have done in the past!
4. How Full is Your Bucket?
So, I know I have purchased more things, but here are some of the basics. I am back to being a "new" teacher again since I am in a new district, so orientation starts August 1st. I can't believe how soon that is coming up!
