My Favorite Teacher Supplies of 2018


How is it possible that the year has already come to an end? In the past couple of days, I’ve written about my favorite reads of 2018, teaching materials I’ve created, and blog posts I wrote.

In the spirit of the New Year, here’s a countdown of my favorite teaching supplies of 2018! This post contains affiliate links. While the links have no direct impact on you, I may receive a small kickback for sharing these resources and links with you.

10. Glass magnets for the whiteboard

I absolutely love these magnets. They are super cute, colorful, and useful. I keep some of these in my desk and near my whiteboard so that I can easily affix papers (mainly, papers that students leave behind) onto my whiteboard.

9. Teacher Created Resources Management Binder Clips

These binder clips help keep me organized. Seriously, I have several sets of these for the various class periods that I teach.

8. 3-Tier Utility Cart

A little bit of organization and extra space is always a good thing, especially in the classroom. I love this utility cart because I can use it for my own supplies or for student supplies.

7. Mini Succulent Pots

These adorable little mini succulent pots don’t really serve a purpose other than making me smile. They are adorable, and they add a little color to my classroom. I have some on my teacher desk and placed sporadically throughout my classroom library.


6. Fadeless Wood Paper

This paper helps transform my much-too-peachy classroom into a room that I love spending time in. The wood look of this paper softens my classroom and provides a great classroom backdrop.

5. Redi-Tag Sticky Note Dividers

As a high school English teacher, these dividers are amazing. As I read a novel ahead of my students, I use these divider tabs to label and annotate my novels.

4. Flair Pens

Hands-down, these are my favorite pens to use when I write in my teacher planner. I like to get a fresh pack every semester because I use them so much!

3. Neon Labels

This school year I organized my classroom library by genre. I wanted a super easy and student-friendly way to label my books, and these neon labels were perfect! They even come with a downloadable template!

2. Magnetic Border Strips

These magnetic border strips are game changers! I can easily reconfigure my whiteboard without the sticky mess of tape! There are a bunch of different designs available, but I love these ones because they match my border.

1. Prism Window Cling

This school year I added these prism window clings to my classroom windows to try to reduce outside distractions. These window clings were super easy to put up (just soapy water and a squeegee) and they add color to my classroom.
