Looking for Digital Products to use in the classroom?! I have created some VERY kid friendly activities. They are predictable and similar, but also work on lots of literacy and math skills. Check out the Digital bundle for currently 17 different skills being worked on and more being added frequently!

Here are the items I cannot live without! 

1. Velcro! I use velcro for my adapted books, pictures, schedules, and a variety of other activities!
Hook & Loop Self Adhesive Dots

2. Lakeshore Trays! We use these for table time activities, defining space when completing arts tasks, and for quick and easy stacking of activities for the week (you can carry the tray right over and not lose any materials). 
You can find them here.
3. Laminator and Laminating Pouches. Between laminating materials, visuals, and just about everything I did break down and buy my own laminator a few years ago and it has been fabulous! The lamination is way thicker and more durable than the one at school. 
Scotch Laminator,
4. Flair Pens! Who doesn't love bright colors and they write great!

Paper Mate Flair Felt Tip Pens
5. Oval Tubs from the Dollar Tree We use these to hold small manipulatives, adapted book pieces, scissors, glue, etc. They are the perfect size and great for sorting manipulatives too. 
Colorful Oval Plastic Storage Tubs with Handles
6. Clothespins. I use them at centers, in task boxes, and for my large visual schedule. 

7. Clipboards. I use these all around the room for tracking student data (circle time, work boxes, individual student tally charts).
