As a first year teacher, I don’t have a lot of materials at hand or a lot of tools under my belt. I want to make sure that my students will have a structured environment to come into each day and having labels, their own personal materials and some comfortable seating options will really help make the classroom their own. The items I chose show their value by having multiple uses; something I’m sure everyone can resonate with. Clipboards are useful for me because I do not have a table to conference with students at, so I will have to conference on the carpet with clipboards. Having comfortable seating for students will make it even better for when they join me away from the class. Lastly, the label tape (which also doubles as good tape for helping my kindergarteners with spelling) and the rainbow cart helps me with my day-to-day lesson planning that will allow me to keep my day organized. When my materials are kept together and in one place, I am able to addresss my students’ needs more quickly and more efficiently.
