I have a friend starting her first year as a teacher! Besides the borders here are some of the things that I think would be useful to have! All are Amazon links for ease, but check your local stores also and Facebook teacher selling groups for better pricing! You could also just purchase online to skip the lines!
You will need these on your walls if you are teaching kinder/first grade!
The sharpener to get!
Make your life easier and just get a laminator!
I used these as book boxes! But check locally at Target or Walmart or the Dollar Tree
Just for organizing stations or guided reading areas!
Definitely check locally for pricing as I don't remember them being this expensive!!!!
Hope that gets you started!!!! Good luck new teachers!!!!!!
