12 Amazon Finds You Need for Your Upper Elementary Classroom!
Are you constantly ordering things from Amazon? It seems to be the norm these days for teachers (and really anyone). Over the years I’ve ordered a lot, so I’ve compiled a list of 12 things that have been so helpful in my 4th grade classroom! Check them out below.
Let me tell you, my students were SO excited that I have these on hand everyday for them. Something so simple, yet means a lot to them and makes their life a little bit easier.
Looking to reward your students, but don’t want to break the bank. Water bottle stickers are all the rage right now and come at the perfect price point!
Do you have squirmy students? These bands have been so helpful for my students- they allow students to stay seated and focused, yet still get their energy out.
I love having these on my front board with a little greenery and the read aloud book we are reading at the time.
I have used my cart for a few different things over the years, but it is always helpful. From collecting papers to storing supplies, this little cart is a must have for the classroom.
For the first time this past year, I put Velcro on my classroom calendar. What a game changer it was… most months I actually changed the calendar on time!
For the Teacher
I can remember my first year of teaching and I ordered a class set of mini dry-erase boards. A co-worker laughed at me and couldn’t believe I was spending half of my allotted money on individual boards for each student. Well, over a decade later I still have many of those same boards, and I use them all. the. time. Check out my blog post about how to use mini whiteboards in the classroom.
I’ll be honest, these came to me much later in my teaching career. I thought they were mostly for younger students, but I was wrong. They are great for center work and for saving paper! My students also use them daily for our fluency work.
