Every year the instructors in the school district I teach at go to an educational supplier shop that has everything us teacher folk use as teaching aids in class. They have all the materials we need to teach any subject, every little thing you need to decorate the classroom with, and various other classroom supplies that we distribute to students at the start of the year. The entire shop is considerably discounted with a myriad of things that can be used in the class.
I’m a science teacher so there are already myriad amounts of supplies that I must have to teach my class, lead labs, and decorate my classroom. Thankfully the shop has every little thing laid out in a neat and organized fashion. Under the science classroom materials section I can find all the products I need to have fun projects to do in class as well as other school materials that could last me the whole year. At the back of the science materials for classroom area of the store is a whole wall devoted to teacher materials for science instructors.
My friend Ann who teaches special education in another school district, always asks to come with the other instructors and I when we go to the school classroom supplies store. This is the best place for her to find all her classroom materials since they have a ton of special needs education resources that she stands by every academic year. The special needs teaching supplies section organizes activities according to the specific needs of each student in special education. For example, there’s a book that she purchases every year that has tasks for students that have Down syndrome. These activities are enjoyable for students and help with their total growth and development.
The best part of the whole store is a section that has printable school materials that teachers can select from worksheets, and other teaching materials they wish to use in their lesson plans. A great deal of the mathematics instructors discover research pages and practice sheets in this department. For me though, I always appear to forget to look here for printable materials that I might use in my class. However, once I’m done getting everything from the science division I currently have more than I require and I end up investing even more money than I initially intended on.
I think that every school district should either go to a classroom materials store or find a website that has everything we need to get prepared for the upcoming academic year. In this manner the teachers have every little thing they need to make lesson plans interesting and create a fun learning environment for all their students. Next school year I think that Ann is going to talk with the superintendant about planning a journey to go to the school supply store with all the teachers in the school. That way instructors that are interested in going can find everything they need to have a successful school year.
