So I got to do something awesome today!!! One of my friends who graduated and has a job let me help her set up her classroom today. We're both kind of in the same boat not having our own classrooms before so she wanted my input ........ and I said "Of course" (I secretly jumped up and down)
Whew....I know what all the teachers talk about- it is A LOT of work, moving everything around, getting set up. She wanted to take inventory and see what she might need to order from school to start the year which is where my question comes in. Being a brand new teacher,WHAT DO YOU ORDER?
Where does one even start?! This is not something we went over in college :(
The principal helped start a list and we checked some websites and marked off what was left by a previous teacher, but other than that we just really didn't know
So in blog-land - teachers, I'm asking what would be something a new teacher might forget or really should remember school supply wise to ask for? (Like out of those big catalogs)
Storage is not an issue with lots of cabinets but other than that...........if anyone has ideas of where to start with a new classroom those will be much appreciated!! ;)
Thanks in advance everyone!!
