"What Are You In Love With?" Linky Party

Jennifer at First Grade Blue Skies is hosting a linky party about what we are in love with for our classroom this year.  I decided to join in and I'm kind of excited because this is the first time I have ever participated in a linky party!

First of all, I am definitely getting one of these this year! I have been eyeing these on teacher's websites for years now and I know it is time to finally purchase one of my own!

The Regal Reading Writing Center

Another item I keep eyeing, but I just can't afford to purchase yet is the Elmo document camera. I really want one of these for my room. I think it is so awesome to not have to use transparencies on the overhead and also that you can put manipulatives or a book under there so your whole class can see at once. Great invention! :)

I would really like to find a reasonably priced set of wicker furniture for my classroom. I would love to have a couch and a couple of chairs to set around the room. I think it would really make it feel more homey. :)

I have seen these little lanterns and I am trying to decide if I can find anywhere I can hang them in my classroom. I think they are so cute!

There are tons of things I would love to have for my classroom! My husband wonders how I can spend so much money on my job, but when school starts I know my classroom will be my home away from home and I want my kiddos to feel like they are at home too. :) 

Join the linky party! I would love to see what the rest of you are in love with too!

  5. Hi Alissa!
    I just found your blog through the linky and am now a follower too! Our PTO purchased document cameras for us last year and they seem to work pretty well. They're not Elmo's but our tech guy says they're top notch...and they were only $69.00! Here's the link:
    Hope all of your wishes come true! :)

    Thanks for the info on the document camera. That is an awesome price!! My husband says $69 is definitely doable! :)

    I was teaching science lab last year and I decided that I wanted a digital microscope, and it was funded!!

    Notes From Miss Dennis

  8. My theme this year is polka dots, so I bought those lanterns in different colors. I'm planning on writing each group's number on them and hanging them over their desks. :)
