Back to School Shopping List!

Summer time is here! Many teachers are already preparing their classrooms for the new school year. Themes, planning, stationery, printables, decorations - your head is swimming with all of the new possibilities for September. Here's a quick list of the most poplar classroom stationery that are available at most stationery stores or teacher supply stores. I got these links from Amazon.

 Scented Markers (Mr. Sketch). Students love them and you'd know that you kids were using them by the little colored dots on their noses!

Permanent MarkersSharpie Markers. Sharpie has a wide assortment of markers - permanent, metallic and highlighters.

LaminatorsLaminators. I use my laminator to personalize my classroom with theme accents that really pop when they are laminated. It's very handy for name tags, posters, labels, charts, write-on-wipe-off worksheets, flash cards and so on. I prefer the Scotch Thermal Laminator.
HighlightersHighlighters. Aside from the regular highlighters, I love assorted fluorescent ones and I recently discovered that there are erasable highlighters too! I trust Sharpie highlighters because they do not smear the pen ink on the paper, everything remains neat!

A bookshelf that neatly shows off the covers of the books. This one does not take up much space but it holds a lot of books.
Stationery for Teachers      


Assorted Post-Its

Assorted Post-It Flags

Card Stock paper

I had to add the card stock - I like to print card games and task cards onto the card stock rather than regular paper for reasons explained in this blog post. Every teacher has their own style. I'm not overly picky about what I use. As long as I have a few ergonomic things that make my life easier, I feel prepared and ready to take on anything!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
