First-Year Teacher Must-Haves

It’s no surprise that first-year teachers are walking into classrooms different from the ones they grew up with.

Our teachers and educators have selected these first-year teacher essentials for their usefulness, educational value, and quality. This is true with all of our new teacher must-haves.

New and first-year teachers can find a wide variety of classroom tools like pocket chart cards, dry-erase boards, well-being logs, magnet sets for math symbols and words, and so much more. These new and first-year teacher must-haves encompass essentials for math, reading, writing, and social-emotional learning, as well as tools for classroom management. Find everything you need to get your classroom up and running with our selection of hand-picked new teacher must-haves.
