My Back-to-School Must Haves

The Teacher Factory is hosting a FUN linky party on the top 5 resources you couldn't live without in the classroom. Click on the link above to become part of it.  I have had way too much fun hopping around this linky party to see what everyone considers a must have.  I think it's only fair that I join in! 

#1  Stikki Clips. 
I use them for various reasons throughout the year. They work great on a bulletin board for student work! 
#2  Command Hooks
Do I really need an explanation?  The possibilities are ENDLESS!!!
#3 A New Lunchbox
I get a new one EVERY year for obvious reaons.  I think I get just as excited about finding a new one for the new school year as our kiddos do.  Last year, I had one a 31 lunch bag given to me and I LOVED it so I'll probably be looking for a new one this year!

#4 Colored Ink Cartridges
I use a colored printer that came with the computer I bought after graduating college (11 years ago) and it works better than any of the 3 fancy ones I have bought for home amazes me! I usually only have to buy 2 colored cartridges a year....crazy right???

HP 28 2-pack Tri-color Inkjet Print Cartridges 

#5 Plastic Sleeve Protectors
I use these to organize my kid's BEE binders (daily organizational binder). I also use them to turn any worksheet into a reusable dry-erase sheet...perfect for centers! I am really motivated about shopping on this tax free weekend!  I even have a baby sitter lined up so I can join my girlfriend for a fun day of shopping for school supplies, clothes, shoes, and of course we HAVE to enjoy a great lunch out.  I can't wait!
