Must-Haves for the Classroom

Happy Monday, Sweet Friends!!  
I am excited to share my classroom must-haves with you all for Teacher Week @ Blog Hoppin'!

1. Magnetic Handwriting Paper: I keep this up on my whiteboard all year long. It is dry erase, so I can use it over and over again. I also love how it has handwriting lines, so I can model correct handwriting techniques while using the whiteboard. {Sorry no picture... I promise to add it soon!}

2. My Silhouette Cameo: I love this machine and I love how it doesn't need any cartridges, just a computer! I've posted about it here and here.

3. Reading Comprehension Worksheets and Activities: This 60+ page packet is my #1 seller on TpT. It is perfect for small group instruction (Guided Reading groups) and can also be adapted for whole group instruction (for grades K-3). In my classroom, I will be using them for both. I have also made the pages and activities "generic" so they can be used for a variety of stories (over and over again).  I use this packet in my own classroom everyday.

4. Sharpies... and lots of 'em: I love Sharpies and I can never have too many or enough colors.

5. A Teacher Binder: I love having my planner and important student information with me wherever I go. Click {here} to check out my teacher binder and download all the documents to make your own {for free!!!}.

    Lindsey, can you tell me the name of the font you used to write the words across your template?
    (Summarizing, comparing etc.) It looks so cute in colored print!
