I have just found a wonderful linky party that I am joining. It is hosted by Kelley at Teacher Idea Factory. It is her first linky party and I'm so excited to join!!
It is about the things/resources that we couldn't live without in our classrooms. Here are the things I couldn't live without:
1) Dr. Jean cds
I use them every day at multiple times. My kinders always remind me if I forget to do the songs during our calendar, math or the beginning of our literacy time. They are always a favorite.
2) Donors Choose
I don't know where I would be without this wonderful resource. It has provided me and my classroom with many wonderful resources. I have received a digital camera, guided reading books, a bookshelf, monthly educational magazines, and other valuable resources that I could not afford to purchase myself.
This is a fabulous resource that our school subscribes to. It has very kid friendly videos and explains topics in a way that my kinders can truly understand. There are videos on language arts, science, social studies, and math topics. I also love the characters Annie and Moby. Moby is always the favorite since he is a robot.
4) My favorite children's books
I have amassed quite a collection of books over my years of teaching. I try to keep them organized by theme so they are easily accessible when I am teaching about a certain topic.
