Kelley over at Teacher Idea Factory is hosting a super fun linky party. She wants us to blog about the five resources we just wouldn't be able to survive without. I have had so much fun reading everyones posts and I just couldn't wait to link up. (I also have a wish list about a mile long now from reading about so many great resources...hah!)
My top five resources:
1) My ELMO and projector. Gosh.. I love my ELMO and I don't know what I would do without it. I think back to the overhead projectors we had in elementary school and I am so thankful my school is fortunate enough to provide all of us with more advanced technology.
2) Clickers... I love my class set of clickers. We use these quite often and I love them because it allows me to see quickly whether or not my class is catching on to a topic. I can also go back and look at who missed what question and what questions were missed the most... love them!
3) Blog world... I would not have survived my first year of teaching without all of the amazing resources out here in blog land.
5) My classroom library... I started building my library before I even had my classroom and I am constantly looking for new books to add to my collection. I believe that each classroom needs a good library and I have seen the advantages of having my own personal library this year. My students loved being able to run to the back of the room to pick out a book. I also loved that I could closely monitor what my students were reading and I could give them suggestions from my library.
Now you know my favorite resources, I want to know yours! Go link up with Kelley...now! =)
