Three-ring binders. We were allowed to take a full box of binders! Everyone should be organized now.
Wall stickers. Yet another take all you want item (I took two - one for me & one to share). I stuck one package's worth around my room - the Kinders think they're cook!
Items from the "limited quantity" area. I am excited about the pencil boxes (lower left) because I found something on Pinterest to make using them and didn't want to pay full price for them. I'd hoped to get them during the Back to School sales this summer.
Colored pens, Sharpies, and thumb tacks. Another item I usually spend my own money on at Back to School Time.
A nifty collapsible vase.
Pencil boxes, accordion folders, paper clips, stickers, page protectors.
My "Big Item." Everyone gets to pick one big item. There are all sorts of "Big Items." This is a super cool colored masking tape dispenser. One of my teacher friends got a fireproof safe as her big item! It is amazing the items that are donated.
As you know, pencil sharpeners and Kinders do not mix (at least not very well...). I keep a supply of sharp pencils on hand for a quick swap whenever a pointy pencil is needed. In order to keep a constant supply available, I have enlisted two parents to be my Pencil Parents. About twice a month, I send home a zipper bag full of dull pencils and my wonderful volunteers sharpen them for us! What a time saver! This is a great volunteer opportunity for parents who work or have small children at home and cannot come into the classroom, and it is incredibly helpful.
