Rockin' Resources and a Giveaway!

The Teacher Idea Factory  
Is having a Linky Party for Rockin' Resources.  I love, love, love school supplies so this is right up my alley.

I am going to try and share some different things because some of you have already shared some really great stuff.  Ooh which leads me to Really Good stuff!  I love that place.  First of all, they offer an EZ Pay plan, where you can pay in 3 smaller payments instead of 1 big one.  That makes it so much easier.  Here are a few things I've gotten from them and absolutely love for the organization factor.

Durable Book And Binder Holders - Earth Colors  
Durable Book And Binder Holders
I use these book bins for each of my students. They have their Own book bin to keep their "Good-Fit" Books, journals, and Fluency binder.  They take it with them during Daily 5. They are durable and easy to carry for my little firsties.  I don't know what I would do without them.  Plus they have all different colors so it's easy for the kids to see who's is who's.
 I also use these for MY materials--I have one for every day of the week. I put my copies, read alouds, craft supplies, in each one, for the day I am going to use it.
 Four-Compartment Caddies – Multi - with Label Holders

I put one of these on each table for easy access to supplies. You can get them with or without the labels.

This thing is awesome, it's like 3 things in One.  I can hold my important files, manuals and my abundance of pens all in one place!

White Board Stand Including White Board

A few years ago our PTO bought everyone one of these little guys.  I don't know what I would do without it.  I have it at my Guided reading table.  When I am working with my small groups I use this for my target and phonics skills.  It fits perfectly right at my side and it's easy for the kids to see.

NEXT is my Daily Objectives Poster

Daily Objectives Poster
 I don't know about you, but we have to post our learning goals every day for every topic.  This poster is great, because it's dry erase ready.  I can put it either on  a bulletin board in the front of the room or my white board and still have space.

Crayola Skinny Markers
I use these everyday for lots of things.  First, I have a document camera that I use all day long.  I use these markers when I am writing, because they are just the right width, when projected on the screen.  I also use these for grading papers, because I have such a nice variety of colors and it doesn't bleed through the students papers.  I bought mine at Wal-Mart.

I hope you like these resources, I really don't know what I would do with out them in my classroom.

  4. I just purchased a huge lot of the magazine holders... I bit the bullet on the price, but know they will be worth it... Can't wait to use them!!!

    I'm also looking forward to the Daily Objectives poster... I did see a cute pin on how to use it. I forgot we have them!!

    Lastly, I didn't think to use those thin crayola markers for grading and the projector. I'm planning to use the projector instead of the white board this year, and I think it will quench my thirst for color (like expos do lol).

    Great post!!!


I love hearing from you!!!!Thanks for telling your tale....
