Top 5 Must have for the Classroom

Pouch Laminator

 I do not know what I would do without this handy little laminator.  I use this for all of my name tags, write and wipe activities and much more.  When using the pouch laminator items last a lot longer than when using the tradition laminating machines.   

I Pod and Docking Stereo 

 If I have to say what is my top have to have for my classroom it would by my I Pod and the docking stereo with a CD Player.  I love how I can make my play list based on themes or for my ABC circle or Math Circle play list.  I have 25 years worth of Cd's stored on my one I Pod.  (Could not live without it now)

Digital Camera

 I use my digital camera daily.  It is used for class books, classroom labeling, parent information board, observations for portfolio and more.

Epson PictureMate Snap 4x6 Photo Printer

 Since I use my digital camera so much it is nice to have a photo printer.  I can download and print right then and there.  It saves me time and cost the same per picture as if I went and had them printed.  

What are your top 5 must have for your classroom?

 Keep checking back I will be giving one of these produces away next week!


  1. Hi Tami,
    I love your blog. I agree with your first 4 must haves. I love my personal laminator and the lamination sheets are really inexpensive at BJ's (much cheaper than Target). The first thing on my list would be my iphone. I keep all of my music on my phone. Last year I also took most of my photos on it. I'm not sure what I'll do this year because the quality of the photos definitely suffers but I took so many more candid shots because I always kept it in my pocket. Thanks again for all of your great ideas.

  2. Enjoyed your top 5.
    Mine would be:
    1) my laminator (same as yours). Tami, have found even better laminator sheet options/prices on Amazon.
    2) digital camera -also use daily as love the visual documentation photos provide
    3) video option on camera or separate small camcoder - using videos almost as much as photos since I found and easy to embed in my blog.
    4) laptop - blogging about our activities(, communication with parents, research questions by children, pinterest, Pandora for music, Skype, professional networking.... the educational use is expanding for both organization and direct instruction
    5) CD/tape player. Have iPod and small dock, but so much of my music is on those older tapes, still need that player.
