The Physical ClassroomJan Brett Classroom Signs- Beautiful signs to label every nook and cranny of your classroom.
Clean Desk Fairy Notes- These fantastic little notes will motivate students to keep those desks clean!
Use this interactive website to 'set up' your classroom. I was skeptical, but it actually works. The shapes are a bit basic, but it will hopefully save you hours of moving desks around only to find out you don't really like it as much as you thought you did.
Classroom Set-Up Checklist
8 Secrets of Classroom Design
Classroom Emergency Supplies- A good idea for any classroom. If you are in a disaster-prone area (such as us Bay area California teachers), also consider keeping a kit specific for that. I like the idea of having a flashlight, snacks for the students, bottled water, etc. If you are in lock-down mode, you may have several hours without power, sitting against a wall. Think ahead to alleviate stress.
Door Signs- let visitors know where you are when you leave the classroom-make a cute door wheel! Have the caboose of your line set the wheel whenever you leave the room.
Teacher Control Journal- Amazing resource to help you get your life in order, by The Fly Lady.
Magazine Art- Decorate your classroom with 'magazine covers' with your students as the models.
K Cons- Cutest clip art pictures EVER! Use on labels, posters, newsletters, ect. I love them!
