Linking Up: Top 5 Teacher Must Haves

Today, I'm linking up with Life is Sweet for:
Teaching Easel
I have the Royal Reading & Writing Center from Really Good Stuff in my classroom. This thing has it all: magnetic dry erase board, storage tubs, pencil/marker storage, removable dry erase board with lines, and big book storage in the middle. I love it because it is on wheels, can be placed where I need it, and moved out of the way when I don't.

Elapsed Time Timer
I love this timer and so do my students. They are able to tell how much time is left with a quick glance. I prop it on my chalk tray, but it has a stand and a hanger on the back. One more thing I love about it, it doesn't scare the mess out of us when it goes off. It's loud enough for the kids to hear without being frightening.

Scotch Laminator
Now that I have a personal laminator, I wonder how I ever survived without it? If you don't have one, you should get one. You can thank me later. ;)

Supply Cubbies
I use these to store each child's extra supplies. I inherited these cubbies with my classroom. This is an old picture, I have since added black number stickers to each plastic box. I like them much better now.

Command Hooks
Who doesn't love these?

Christy, the easel sounds really interesting. Mine doesn't have any storage, and I think your kind is just what I need. I also really like those command hooks. I hang teacher-made books on rings from them, as well as pocket charts for all different types of centers, and they're just so much more convenient than using the sticky stuff to hang things.

Stop by my blog if you have a moment. I have lots of freebies! :)
