Start of the Year

Shop till you drop! – Shopping for your classroom.

 Hello Everyone!
I hope you have all had an amazing holiday and a very Merry Christmas!
With the New Year just around the corner we don’t know about all of you out there… but I have been going absolutely crazy with these boxing day sales, grabbing everything we may need for our new classrooms.


Here are some things you DEFINITELY need in the classroom, some might surprise you!


Stickers and Stamps:
You can never ever have enough stickers and stamps! Whether it is used for merit awards, positive behaviour acknowledgement or marking books. Stickers are a must in any teachers classroom.
Check out Officeworks for some cute, fun but cheap sticker and stamp options.
There is no point having lots of pencils if you’ve got nothing to sharpen them all with, having a sharpener per desk saves a lot of time at the beginning of each lessons when students discover their blunt pencils. Make sure you stock up and keep them under your desk and replace as needed.
– Pencils and Textas (lead and coloured): 
Lead pencils are a primary students favourite snack – It’s the only way to rationally explain how many of them seem to go missing each day. To save the hassle of solving the mystery of the missing pencil each day, have a stash of pencils ready and waiting.
– Pens:
The pen is a teacher’s best friend. From marking books to marking the roll, a teacher should never be without a pen (especially when you need a specific colour for marking the roll! Towards the end I could never find a blue pen) Typo has some awesome sales on pens at the moment! However for during the middle of the year when you stash has somehow gone missing, have a look in Kmart.Shops you may want to take a look at for your classroom needs (there are some great sales at the moment!)

Get up to 50% off on lots of products.
Kmart has some amazing products the prove to be very useful in the classroom. Whether you are looking for pillows for your reading corner, or white board markers for your whiteboard.
Target also has a wide range of pillows, blankets and some funky classroom decor pieces.
$5 pencil packs!
Stickers starting at just $1!!
Pens 10 pack for $7.50 (that’s 50% off!!!)
Aldi offers some amazing back to school specials. They often supply cheap (and cute) stamps, posters, work booklets and much, much more! Not only that but keep an eye on their special buys, Aldi is a hidden treasure trove of gems for all teachers.

I am a new educator in my second year of teaching. I have worked with children for five years prior to this in an after school care. I absolutely love teaching and the importance of this career. I believe that every student should be immersed in a safe, supportive, calm environment to aid them in achieving the best outcomes they possibly can!
