Here are six items I bought (or were donated by parents from my wishlist) for my middle school classroom in 2023 that I LOVE. I'll share more about each below! Shop these items HERE or click on the image to go directly to that item!
I got this bookshelf for all the children's books that I have for my Child Development class! I have loved being able to display them and love how this bookshelf is functional AND cute!
I found these jellyboards which are a great sensory or fidget toys for students! They're quiet but are seriously so satisfying! You can even change out the picture behind the gel! Perfect for students who have a hard time sitting still. I also use them in my Child Development class!
Clear Display Stands
I got these initially to display the stations for my back to school night (grab that resource here!) But I love using these for any station instructions! It props the instructions up on the table and looks nice!
Poster Storage Bags
In my Career Exploration class I teach, students use a lot of posters for our Career Game Project. My students had a hard time finding their poster each class and posters would end up on the ground getting trampled. So I was stoked to find these storage bags! I labeled them with each class period & every group from that class kept their posters in that bag!
We went one to one this year so students are always needing to charge their chromebooks in my classroom. Adding more charging ports has been a game changer! With this one you can still utilize plugs that may be hard to access behind something and still have a place for students to plug in on that wall!
Clear Storage Bins
I am always looking for ways to be more organized and this year I bought a ton of these bins so that I could put all the materials for a lesson in one bin. I labeled the bins (with this bluetooth label maker) so it's easy to grab it when I am teaching that lesson or doing that activity. I do quite a few different object lessons or hands on activities in my classes so this has been very helpful!!
