A couple of my fellow Tennessee bloggers have joined together to bring you some of our classroom must haves, just in time for Back to School! For a little added bonus, we are also offering one lucky reader a Winner's Choice item from each of our TPT stores, so don't forget to enter the Rafflecopter at the end of this post!




MY MUST HAVES

1. Sharpie Flip Chart Markers-I like to use these to write my morning messages.  They last a long time and they do not bleed onto the next sheet.  Love them!!!



2. Zip Loc Mini Tupperware-I love these. My kids use them as their ticket box.  They collect tickets throughout the week and they can spend them on prizes.  i give them stickers to decorate the tubs.  They are cheap and durable. I love them!

3.  Any games from Lakeshore-Here are a few of my favs!!!  I use these during centers and the kids love them!!!

Fill-In-The-Blank...

Sound-It-Out Phonics...

Word Family Picture...


4.  Anything made by Crayola-I just love their crayons and other supplies.  Does that make me a crayon snob?  I hate off brand crayons. lol 

5. Primary Journal by Mead-This is by far the best journal.  it has tons of pages and they are front to back.  They last the entire year and it is such great quality!
