Traci, over at Dragonflies in First, is hosting a Linky Party for the top 3 classroom items that you couldn't possibly liveout. Hop on over to her blog to see her top 3.
There are so many things in my room that I use all of the time, so it is hard to choose....Let's see I think these 3 items are pretty important:
1. My timer: I use my timer all of the time, everyday! Some times it is for the kids to keep track of how much time they have before sharing. A lot of the time it is for me! I need it to keep me on track so I do not run over time. My reading students stream in and out all day on a 30 minute rotation. I have to really book it to get my lesson completed in that 30 minute time frame. :(
2. Books: That may be too obvious, but I MUST have lots of high quality and engaging literature in my room. The students who come to me have not always had those wonderful moments with books. So it is my job not only to teach them to read, but to also get them to love books!
3. Smartboard: Okay, maybe I could live without it (I didn't always have one), but I don't want to teach without it anymore! Using the Smartboard is so interactive and fun. Just makes your lessons come alive. I am always learning new ways to teach using it and the students just think it is so cool!
