~~Rockin' Resources Linky Party~~

I am joining Kelley over at Teacher Idea Factory for her very first linky party.  She asked everyone to blog about things we couldn't live without in our classroom.  There are so many things I LOVE in my classroom!  Here are my top items I cannot possibly teach without in my classroom.

 I just love having student cubbies in my classroom. Each student has his/her own basket to hold supplies. My classroom and student desks are organized and neat! They are also on wheels--I can move them whenever I want!

I LOVE, LOVE Sharpie markers! I use them on everything!! I especially love the fine tip markers! Grading papers, drawing, labeling items, whatever I need them for, I will use a Sharpie. I have every color Sharpie in my classroom.

Dry-Erase Markers
Having different colored dry-erase markers is a must in my classroom. When teaching a skill, I use different colors to help my students learn better. My students enjoy when I use their favorite color on the board.

I have lots of different colored baskets in my classroom. I use baskets for my library, centers, cubbies, extra supplies, treasure box, and candy treats! I purchase my baskets from the Dollar Tree Store. I love having bright colors in my classroom!!!!

So, now you know what I MUST have in my classroom to survive!  Of coarse, I use many other things daily.  These are just some of the things I use all day!!!  Please don't forget to stop by Kelley @ Teacher Idea Factory and see what other teachers cannot possibly live without in the classroom!
