Terrific Tuesdays

Apparently, I'm meant to be a night owl blogger :)  Mornings are too crazy, afternoons are spent at school, so here it is a little after 9:00 and once again I'm just unpacking my computer from my bag.  Speaking of which, I'm not sure what you have, but if you are looking for a new computer I love my MacBook Pro.  Funny to think that when I first got it I was in tears and wanted to chunk it out a window.

Okay, so today is Terrific Tuesday.  It was a pretty interesting day.  We had grandparents eat lunch with our kids, the book fair, and a random power outage on our side of the county.  The good thing is my classroom has a lot of sunlight in the afternoon, so we were able to keep on moving.

Anyway, before I left today I took a few new pictures, specifically of a the Top 5 things that I HAVE to have to survive in Room 116 :)

I can't live without my Sharpies.  I have a super Sharpie, thin Sharpies, medium Sharpie pens, & fine Sharpie pens.    Yes, I'm a little obsessed with them!  Love them!
This is my little, green wagon.  Instead of having kids carry papers back and forth from our copy lady, I send them with this wagon.  Since I bought it everything is always stacked neatly & is never dropped by accident.
My notepad collection might just be bigger than my Sharpie collection.  I love collecting cute notepads, especially if they have my name, paw prints, or anything to do with first grade.  Yes, this is a drawer full of notepads, & sticky notes. 
This is a portion of my wall of fame.  It has the bear I painted for my last theme and lots of sweet cards & notes from my former students & their parents.  When I have a bad day, I stop what I'm doing, & I read through the cards.  It makes me smile every time.
Last, but not least is my notebooks.  I've never liked filing cabinets, so I did notebooks instead.   You can tell me a standard & I have it covered.  I've had these several years, but redid them this year to match all of the new standards.  It took 4 days to complete.
So, those are the 5 things that I can't live without.  What are the things that you have to have?  Leave a comment.  I would love to hear about a few of your favorite things.

Until tomorrow!
