Teacher Tools...at Home

Mrs. Castro is having a Totally Terrific Teacher Tools at Home linky (say that 3x fast)!


Here are three things that I have at home that I couldn't live without as a teacher:


1.  My Mac with an extra screen.  I love, love, love my Mac and would convince anyone to get one instead of a PC.  It allows for so much more creativity!  My husband hates it.  He's a computer guy and would much rather have a PC.  Having the double screen is a huge help!  It makes creating things for my classroom so much easier.


2.  Okay, I just got this and haven't even opened it yet (look for a post in the near future).  But I have a feeling I'm going to be making a lot of classroom books with this one!  I already have a project ready to go - my new calendar from Charity over at The Organized Classroom Blog!


3.  My drawers.  In here, I have printer paper, card stock, labels, business cards, photo paper, etc all organized.  I use all these things in my classroom all the time so it's nice to have it separated but all in one easy place to access.  I also just (finally) organized my closet - doesn't it look great?!


4.  I guess I should add my HP  All-In-One to this list.  I use it to make all my labels, center activities, classroom posters.  I also go through ink kinda fast.  Maybe I should dial it done a bit?


Now, one teacher tool that I would like to have at home?  Definitely a laminator!
I have an Amazon giftcard so I think I'm going to take the plunge before summer ends!

  4. Thanks for linking up! I am beyond jealous of your computer! I didn't share mine because it's a lame laptop...I'm dying for a mac! Someday...and I can't wait to see all you do with your book binder. I want to know if its worth it.

    AND that's the laminator my dad's work lends me - and it's amazing!

    1. GASP! I just realized I wasn't officially following your blog! Before blogging I had all these bookmarks not realizing you could follow blogs...so I've been unofficially following for ages, but just made it official! ;)

  5. I have tried posting a comment three times now and it's not showing up. Hopefully all three don't suddenly show up! :)
    I can't function without my MacbookPro, either! Love, love, love it! I'm following your blog!
