Teacher Must Haves :Let’s say you had $50 to spend at Staples, that sounds nice, right?  Of course it does! Need other ideas? Click here for more blog posts!

Here is a list of the things I would buy:

You know I love turquoise…so I would HAVE to get the Pacon Azure Blue Bulletin Board paper!!

You know my obsession with Astrobrights Paper and using it for my banners…so that is a HAVE to purchase!

I *may* have an addiction to turquoise binders (which you can find HERE on Staples), evidenced by this picture:

Since I print A LOT, HP ink and toner would need to be purchased for sure!!

And no classroom would be complete without Mr Sketch Markers!

I store mine here:

  10. I would buy supplies, like pencils, markers and notebooks that many of my students come to school without.

  11. I, too, LOVE Astrobrights paper! It adds color without using too much ink, which is something else I usually purchase from Staples. And one cannot simply have enough cardstock!

  17. Hey Jennifer! I love your TPT products and your blog so much! As a relatively still new teacher, you have literally been my lifesaver. You’re so awesome, I want to be your best friend! HAHA!

  18. HAHA! Forgot to mention that I would use a gift card to purchase ink since my school district does not allow us to use the copy machine! Ridiculous!

  19. I’m like a kid in a candy store in office stores! I’d definitely buy markers, bright papers, storage/organization, paper for printer- I could easily spend way more than $50!!! Thanks for the chance.

  20. I remember playing with Mr. Sketch markers, so those would be a definite! I also need more kids’ scissors!

  21. Oh my gosh what wouldn’t I buy! Lamination pockets, sheet protectors, notebooks, and supplies that my kids don’t have money for.

  22. O…M…G!! I think I just spent the last two hours looking through your blog!!! WOW! Girl– You have my dream classroom!! 🙂 I love all the things you’d purchase! I’d get some new colored pens, markers, and definitely Astro Brights– (shocked to say I’ve never had any Astro Brights!!) Keep up the good work girl!!! You make teaching look FABULOUS!
