This is essential. On the first day of school leave Play-Doh on students’ desks and allow them to play with it while they chat. Then, they can play with it throughout the day when you have downtime. At the end of the day, they take it home. It is the cheapest way to be less crazy on the first day of school.
A GOOD Pencil Sharpener
Is there anything more annoying than when your pencil sharpener is terrible? I buy a new one every year. The new one becomes MINE and then the old one goes to the kids to use! This is my personal favorite!
A Stash of Happy Things
Each person has that one item that makes their heart a little happier when they see it. For me, it is bright colored post-it notes and flair pens. For you, it could be something else. But either way, stock up on your favorite item. If you want my favorites click the affiliate link below!
The Best Bookbag
I have bought way too many school bags in my lifetime and I will say I have only had two that I LOVE. This leather bookbag has seen me through the years.
I also had this teacher tote for a long time and loved it too.
The book bag is more comfortable and requires me to put less in my bag (which for me is a needed thing).
With the teacher tote, you can literally put your whole life in there!
