Mrs. Reed's Must Haves!!!

Joining this linky party so I can share some of my favorite things I use in my classroom:

1. Sharpie Flip Chart Markers- I love these because you can use them on your flip chart and it wont bleed through to the next page.  Perfect for morning meetings and anchor charts! I bought my from Office Depot.

2.  Lakeshore story wands- I love these for guided reading lessons.  The students love them too!  It is a great way to informally assess my students on comprehension.  They are about 20 dollars at lakeshore.

3.  Pinterest- Thanks to a great teacher at my school for inviting me! I love it! It is a great way to communicate with teachers and friends to get good ideas!

4.  Teachers Pay Teachers- I love this site! I used it all the time last year to buy great units.  I am so happy that this year I have started selling my own products.

5.  Mr. Sketch- I love to use these in my students daily folders.  I write their daily behavior score in their folder.  They love to smell them!
