Now for my list of things I couldn't live without in my classroom. This is tough because I tend to enjoy trying new things rather than doing the same thing year after year. However, I do have a few Must Have's that help me out each day.
Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook - There is no better resource out there for teachers than a website where we can download lessons and activities to teach standards. I can spend hours just perusing the sites to get inspiration or to quickly print out something I need to use that day. It's the wave of the future!
See How They Grow Video Series - These movies are the absolute BEST! Each video shows three or four animal life cycles. My students are able to watch, learn, and even take notes so we can do compare/contrast activities. I look forward to watching these videos each year!
TeacherWeb.com - I used this website to create my classroom website that keeps parents informed and my students entertained at home. I create newsletters, upload documents, post daily schedules, and update wish lists for parents to view. I also have a page listing safe websites for kids. It costs about fifty dollars each year and is worth every penny!
