This will be my first year teaching and I am very excited! Working with a mentor teacher for the past year has shown me all the classroom supplies that I will need to supplment for my students. I learned that my students loved exit tickets on sticky notes, and I found magnetic dry eraser notes that can be reusable! I have also learned in this past year that a lot of my students were carrying loose paper in their notebooks, so I bought them folders to use. I was attempting to look for notebooks as well on Amazon, but I couldn't find any good ones. Since I am a new teacher, I am getting these school supplies as a first time buyer. Hence, that is why I have some supplies that I would need in order to run my class effectively. Additionally, some of my student's favorite activities included collaborative work such as the Jigsaw activity, Philosophical chairs, and making a poster as a group. The desk is for my students to work in collaborative groups. I plan on placing the desk in the middle of the classroom or towards the back, so that students have additional space to sit in. This is also a way for me to slowly move towards flexible seating in my classroom. Lastly, I asked a few of my students to go on Amazon to look up books that they would love to read. I chose those books to build my new classroom library. I wanted to make my library student centered and really give them the choice of choosing the books. In order to improve literacy in Kern County, I want to make my classroom library the centered space for reading and writing.
