When you are working with little ones it is wise to keep some essential teacher supplies on hand, but off limits to those sweet little hands.  Here’s what I keep in my supply box…

I keep resources that I can use when modeling activities, creating resources for my little ones and during instructional time, small or whole group.

I grabbed this container the last time I went to Ikea and it is perfect for my teaching supplies.  I have switched these supplies out multiple times and the materials I used fit in the compartments perfectly.

My Favorite Supplies!

In the large section I keep my scissors, glue, notepads, hole punch and pens.  My scissors always seem to go missing, so I keep my favorite scissors stashed in here.  I also keep my twistable crayons and, of course, Mr. Sketch markers that you can read more about {here}.

I keep a pack of crayons in my teacher supply box, too.  I want to have a full set of crayons on hand when we are working together on a project, and know that they haven’t been in any little mouths.

The next two compartments are where I keep materials for small group instruction.  These sections change during the year depending I what I am using at the time and what I want to keep in the container or in learning stations.  We use our tweezers for a variety of fine motor activities and to look for letters or chunks in words.  I also keep some wiggle eye rings (from the Target party section) for reading and pencil grips during writing time.

My favorite part of my supply box is my most recent addition…my adorable label!  I created my label with my Cricut Explore by creating a template in Cricut Design Space, printing the label and letting my Cricut do the cutting.

I had the label completed from start to finish in a matter of minutes…one of the reasons why I LOVE my Cricut Explore.  What’s even better is that you have a chance to win a Cricut or nominate a teacher your love to win one!
