8 Items In My Amazon Wish List For My Future Classroom

I can't wait to create my future classroom and make a home-away-from-home for my students. I've already started considering what I want for my classroom and doing some research on the subject - this is just a peek into what I'm hoping to include.

1. Portable Easel Pads 

Portable easel pads can be used for so many things - anchor charts specifically! I also like that these are big enough that all of my students can see what is going on. Throw in some markers and this is a very inexpensive way to bring the whole class together for a group discussion.

2. Sharpie Markers

Following up - these are the markers I love to use for anchor charts! The Sharpie Flip Chart Markers with the bullet tips are awesome! Obviously, any markers will get the job done, but I do really like how these ones write.

3. Scented Ink Pads

I've found that the students I've worked with so far love the idea of having the smelly stamp on their hand as a reward for completing a task or winning a word game. I'd never thought about it before until one of my CTs told me about it. This pack has seven different scents!

4. Stamps

Following the scented ink pads, here are some of the stamps I love!

5. Educational Stamps

6. Caddy Organizers

I love the idea for my future classroom to have groups of tables/seating with caddies at each table so that my students always have what they need readily available to them.

7. Drawer Organizers

I love these drawers for organizing small group materials!

8. Fidgets and Flexible Seating

There are so many possibilities when it comes to these items, but here are a few I have on my list:

Fidgety Feet: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072V51DHL/?coliid=I3SQL...

Obviously, there are so many things out there for a classroom - the list goes on and on! As an upcoming first-year teacher I've just began compiling my list and this is just a glimpse into it!

According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
