First year teacher school supplies?

One of my mentor teachers just sent me a $50 gift certificate to use at K12SchoolSupplies.net!  I have no idea what I should get…

What are some supplies that every first year teacher should have?

  1. wincherella answered: sticky notes, electric pencil sharpener are my number one things. Good grading pens and a desk calendar .
  2. forn0esis answered: A watch.
  3. teenakp answered: It would use the entire $50, but a heavy-duty pencil sharpener is a must, as the one you get (IF you get) from the school will be crap.
  4. revolutionizeed answered: Pens..lots of different colored pens. Electric pencil sharpener.
  5. everyfiredies answered: STICKIE NOTES. I use them all day every day. And I agree with lhuddles with binder clips and organizing bins/trays.
  6. edukaition answered: I agree with PPT - I would wait and see what your school will provide you before I spent it.
  7. swirlingmango answered: If they are not too expensive, you can never go wrong with sissors or other little things too. If you’re doing math. Calculators?
