BTS Teacher Favs: Teacher Must Haves!

Less than a month until I'm back to school. One of my favorite parts of getting ready are all of the school and office supplies for me! My husband would say I have a problem, but I think most teachers would agree, there is just something about new supplies! It's the little things, I guess.

I'm linking up with some other fabulous bloggers to share our teacher favs. I cannot wait to see what everyone else has linked up, before I start my annual back to school pilgrimages to Target & Amazon!

<a href="">Paper Mate Flair Porous-Point Felt Tip Pen, Medium Tip, 12-Pack, Fashion Colors (74423)</a><img src="" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" />
I absolutely love Paper Mate pens for grading or as a special treat for students during writing time. Sharpie Pens hold a special place in my heart too, but for the day-to-day duties, Paper Mate is where it's at.

<a href="">Post-it Notes, 3 in x 3 in, Jaipur Collection, 5 Pads/Pack (654-5UC)</a><img src="" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" />
I may not have the Post-It obsession like my friend, Joanne, but I do use Post-It's daily. My teammate and I write out a general outline for the week, one writing for reading the other for communications. I take what's on there, and write a one liner or a quick check list for each day. Post-Its for an at a glance lesson plan, grouping, and just to jot down the things to do before I forget!.

<a href="">MICS 61001 Gorilla Glue Adhesive Duct Tape, 30' Length, 1" Width</a><img src="" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" />
This "supply" I might have taken from the hubs {sorry, dear!} My current building is a historical site, with nearly indestructible walls that nothing sticks to. Luckily, our new building will be complete in December! Last year, I struggled keeping up all of my posters that weren't on bulletin boards. Then, I found Gorilla duct tape in my husbands stash, and everything stayed up. It's not the prettiest, but rolled up behind a poster you can't see it anyway and it sticks! 

These are just a few of my favorites, I'm sure I'll find a few more must haves linked up. Be sure to check out other Teacher Faves and link up your favorites too!

  2. I have not heard of that tape, I have seen the glue before and it works great! This may be the problem to my problems.
    Thanks for linking up!

  3. I had a favorite pen when I was in grade school. I should have know right then that I was destined to be a teacher! I am also a proud Flair addict!

  4. I think I will add the Gorilla Tape to my shopping list for next time I go to the store! I too love Flair pens, I have about 40 of them sitting on my coffee table right now!
