These are a few of my favorite things...

Lil' Country Kindergarten is having a Linky Party. The subject? My teaching wouldn't be the same without...

#1

Music, but most importantly music by Mr. Al. Some of my friends and I were lucky enough to attend a Mr. Al conference earlier this year. I just love his music, enthusiasm, and creativity. Some of our favorites include Please Stand Up, Funky Backwards Alphabet, and Rockin' the Alphabet.

#2

Expo dry erase markers...the big pack with all the colors. Having all the colors available is handy when drawing pictures on the whiteboard.


I also really love TUL low odor dry erase markers. They are magnetic on one side and stay attached to the whiteboard. I find these markers at my local Office Max. I can not find these exact markers on their website, unfortunately.

#3


The Royal Reading & Writing Center from Really Good Stuff. This thing has it all: magnetic dry erase board, storage tubs, pencil/marker storage, removable dry erase board with lines, big book storage, etc.

#4

The No Yell Bell is another favorite in my classroom. My students love the seven different sounds and I love the volume control button on the bell. We use the different sounds for transitioning, knowing when to decrease our talking volume, and lining up.

You just commented over on my blog and I had to come over here! Super cute blog! And I have to find those magnetic markers! I looked up the easel but it's out of my budget. :( Do you actually have that in your classroom???? I love all of your stuff! :)

I love that bell! I had never seen one until your post. I may have to get one of these. Thanks so much for participating in my Linky party!
