Must Have Monday!

Do you have certain items that you use in your classroom that you absolutely LOVE?  I would love to hear about them!  These are a few of my favorite things.

Heidi Songs- Oh, my word!  I can't say enough about these songs.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!  I started using them about 5 years ago and I immediately noticed a HUGE increase in my student's ability to read and spell the sight words.

I LOVE my Zune!  It makes it so easy to organize and play all of my music that we use in the classroom.

Flair pens!  Oh, my goodness!  I love these things! 

A lot of you have asked about the lettering on my charts.  One of the secrets is these Project Popperz!  Abby introduced me to these about a year ago and I am in love.  :)   They are super hard to find right now though.  I originally bought mine at Walmart and they have HOT colors like hot pink, lime and turquoise in addition to the traditional colors.

This is a Silhouette Cameo and y'all can I just say that I am in LOVE with this machine!  Seriously!  The possibilities are endless when you have some pretty scrapbook paper or vinyl and this machine.  :) 

Children's Books...just like shoes!  It doesn't matter how many you have you always want more!

And Sonic Coke!  There are some days when I just can't make it without one!  :)

  6. I LOVE my ABC flip chart & CD... the songs are so cute, the kids love them, and it's the perfect way to introduce the letter of the week.

  7. If you love pens, my new favorites are the Frixion pen and highlighters. They have a rubber tip on the end that erases them. They are absolutely brilliant!

  8. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas! How many children do you have in your classroom? If you had 28 students in your class, could you still do the curriculum, projects, and the many ideas you do now?

  9. I need help with designing a new blog template design. Any ideas?
