Check out what I've been doing "currently".
B2S Must Haves
*Electric Hole Punch* This year, my students will keep a notebook with all journals, vocabulary lists/definitions, and handouts. I would not even think about doing this without a hole punch being available in my classroom. Therefore, in my opinion, there is no other way to go other than using an electric one. We have one in the teacher workroom and it is pretty amazing! :)
*Stocked 1st Aid Drawer* Though we have a school nurse, most of the time, I still gave out my share of band-aids. This year, I decided that the students are very capable of cleaning their wounds without me. So I have stocked the drawer beside the sink in our room with band-aids, neosporin, peroxide, and cotton balls.
*Leader in Me by Steven Covey* My principal introduced this book to me. This book emphasises a culture of student empowerment through developing leaders with 21st century skills.
