Purchase your own laminator and laminator sheets from Amazon. They’re great for things that need to be laminated quickly!

This is important if you want handouts or other materials that you use for more than one student! Lamination helps the paper from getting messed up, and you can always use the sheets again the next year!

I have one of those wall mounted automatic hand sanitizer machines in my class and it will change your life no matter what grade level you’ll be teaching... Also, don’t feel pressured to make your room “Pinterest Perfect”. I’d recommend The Space by Robert Dillon, to help get some ideas for working with what you’ve got. It’s a quick read and probably at your nearest B&N 😉😉

What grade level?

You need to find out what your school already has and what’s permitted and what’s not. For example, we cannot have hand sanitizer out for student use because it’s a health code violation. Also our school has a commercial laminator... The space suggestion is a good one. Keep in mind that it’s the students classroom and space. Our job is to facilitate and organize within that space. This year I got rid of all of “my” stuff except for my coffee pot. Even my teacher desk was out. It’s amazing how much more kids were able to do and use without my things in the way

Some GoodWills have school supply overstock from stores like Walmart and Kmart, and they will sell these items for a reduced price. Use clear page protectors for cheap whiteboards. If students start using too many of your pencils, and they don’t return them, use golf pencils- they are cheap and kids don’t want to keep them.

Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
