During the last few weeks of school, we got an email from our assistant principal to be thinking about what we would want to include on a wish list for next year.
I really tried to make a list of items that I *knew* I would use and that wasn't too expensive. I thought I'd share my list with you! First, I ordered more USA Studies Weekly magazines. I got these for the first time last year. I plan to utilize them more next year in 5th grade!
We have an AWESOME vocabulary series, but the vocabulary workbooks (called Writer's Logs) were not ordered again this year so I added it to my wish list.
My new partner teacher uses this real world math set often in her classroom and really likes it so I thought it would be a good addition, too!
I found this History 6 book set, which covers several of our standards. It's always good when you can integrate Literature into Social Studies.
All of the other items I included were materials that we use all the time in my classroom! Construction paper, of course...
Seems like you can never have enough glue!
I have dry erase boards for every student, but I am always lacking dry erase markers. Hopefully these will be ordered! :)
I am going to try using tape in our notebooks this year. The teacher I am joining in 5th grade uses tape and likes it so I am giving it a try!
Last year on my wish list, I ordered book pouches for every student. At a school I visited, I saw that she had hers hanging underneath her Smart Board using these hooks. What a great use of what otherwise would be wasted space!
Each Monday we send home a weekly newsletter and I like to copy mine on colored paper. They seem to stand out a little more than every other copy. I love this bright paper from Office Depot so I requested a bright blue and bright yellow.
What would you include on a classroom wish list?
