Are you ready?
Yes, I’m ready!
Well, I don’t really know about that. Going back to work after being off brings the challenge of getting back into a routine and being prepared to welcome all my new little students. To get myself in the mode to be ready for school, I tend to shop, shop shop!
As a teacher, I love to get new supplies for my classroom. As a mom, I need to get ready for high school, middle school and elementary school. Three girls with different needs mean that I need lots of supplies beyond just pencils and crayons.

I love supplies! Maybe it is the teacher in me who enjoys shopping for the variety out there. Are these colors vibrant? I have a ton of black dry erase markers in my class and welcome the opportunity to add these colors to our whiteboard lessons. We are constantly using Post-its in the classroom. I love have different colors and sizes for activites and lessons.
Once I get what is on my girls’ class supply list, I like to think of “beyond the basics” tools and supplies that you can find at SchoolSpecialty.com.
In addition to having supplies at school, I also create a work area at home that I can use for creating things for lessons and my girls can use for homework and projects. Some people call it a command center. In my house, this command center, has what I need and what the girls need to stay organzied and be prepared. Take a look at Getting Your At-Home Command Center BTS Ready to see what other supplies you can use.

Did you know that headphones are close to becoming an essential? From language labs to listening centers, students are being asked to bring them in to classrooms at all grades.
Teachers are always looking for new ways to use supplies and as a teacher, I would be extremely appreciative if any of these supplies came my way. Through the years, I have received gifts during the first week of school. Take a look at the Practical BTS Tools for Teachers .
Your student’s open house night is the perfect time to give their teacher a little something to show your support and appreciation for all they do. A little something is always greatly appreciated.
