Here is all is. You can see my chrome book sticking out there. Carrying my Chrome book has become a major plus for me as I use it for data collect. There are times that I am sitting behind a student helping him to complete work with one hand, while filling out an A-B-C form on another. Not ideal, but it gets the job done
Coffee and my water bottle are a daily essential. I keep an extra k-cup just in case I need a pickme up when I am not near my classroom. I usually only carry one of the cups at a time and sometimes I leave them somewhere. Such as today I finally found my water cup in a classroom cubby.
I carry two types of timers because I never know which one is going to be needed. I also carry my cell phone to use as a timer when needed
I have pencils and pens along with a hole punch to add visuals to keychains on a whim .
Stickers for rewards and the tape is used to make places on the floor where a chair should be, a line should start, giving borders on a table, and lots of other little things.
I often use the round stickers for students who need to answer questions or spell words, but do not have the ability to write. I will put their answer choices or letter, numbers on the stickers and then they can put the sticker where it is needed. You can find out more about that at this post.
The index cards are to write notes one, make quick flash cards, etc. I usually have sticky notes thrown in there somewhere also.
I carry various visuals. The one on the left is a copy of one of my student's core boards, the middle is a behavior strip for carpet expectations and the right is a bathroom sign that has jumped off of a set of lanyard visuals.
The last thing I include in my bag are some of the intervention materials or assessment materials I may need for the day. Today I wanted a student to try a quick comprehension sheet. In the zipper pouch, I have a dry erase marker, and eraser and a laminated name card so a student can practice writing his name.
So now you have a pretty good idea of what I carry in my inclusion bag (the ones my paras carry have all kinds of different stuff), so I would love to know what you carry around with you.
If you love this bag, you can get your own by going here!! (Thank you for supporting my side gig)
