Faves and Wants Linky!

I've linked up with First Grade Smiles for a Faves and Wants Teacher Wishlist!  I have to say, it was fun to think about what I have that I really use and couldn't live without and dream a little about what I wish I had in my classroom!


1.  Top of my list...my new computer!  I bought my first ever laptop and first ever Apple MacBook Pro back in October!  I have never regretted it and now I'm not sure how I ever survived without it!  I can work on the couch and get to create and surf whenever I like!!!  Let's be clear...I bought this with my own money!


2.  My awesome printer and lots of ink to print all of the great games and lessons on TpT!

HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus  e-All-in-One Wireless Color Printer with Scanner, Copier & Fax+Hewlett Packard - HP 950-951 XL Four Pack- Black & Color Inkjet Ink Set

3.  Expo Low Odor Dry Erase markers in lots of colors!!

4.  White Cardstock to print all the wonderful games I find on TpT.


Ok, these two items are not related or equally priced!  The contrast cracks me up!

1. Every year I think about ordering these for making Anchor Charts!  I always talk myself out of it and just use the Crayola Markers I get for the kids.  Maybe next year!

2.  This is what I really WANT!  This year we finally got iPads for our classrooms...although, only 3 each, it's better than nothing.  Now, I would love to have a t.v. to use like a "smart board."  At my school, primary classrooms have only recently come into the technology age.  Now that I have a little, I can see where I want to go!


Hey, if I'm gonna dream, I'm gonna dream big!!

3.  Ok, these are wants, but they're on the way!  I ordered these!  I couldn't help myself!  I consider them school supplies!

4. And then of course there's my never ending TpT wish list...it keeps growing!

I've linked up with another great blog...Educasong for a fun March Linky Party!  There are some great ideas on here for St. Patrick's Day!

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. My school district keeps telling us we're getting iPads, but it is taking FOREVER!!! I am so anxious to start using them! Thanks so much for linking up :)

  2. My school too! We are supposed to be getting many of them. I currently use my personal one, I would love to see more posts on how you use yours in the classroom!

  3. Thanks for the comments. I'll be sure and include some iPad ideas! We have really enjoyed having them in the classroom this year!
