Blogging Challenge Day 8 : In my desk drawer

What’s in your desk drawer, and what can you infer from those contents?

  • More pens than I will ever be able to use – I love office supplies.

  • Sticky notes of every color, shape, and size – My students know that I love office supplies.

  • Notes from the office – I have a small “deal with this later” pile. I have to put it in a certain spot so that I do deal with it later; otherwise, I’ll forget it.

  • A Tide-to-go pen – I can be messy sometimes. Also, so are fifth graders, and they don’t like walking around covered in stains any more than I do.

  • A mini sewing kit – You never know.

  • My good Expo markers – I don’t mind my students using my markers. But you know, there are some colors that I just want to keep for myself.

  • Change – Sometimes I need a Coke Zero.

  • Graham crackers – I try to always keep some of these around for students with stomachaches. Sometimes just a little bit of extra attention and a graham cracker or two makes all the difference in the world.

  • Notes from my students – I could fill books with these. You can’t just get rid of them!
