Are you on a cart or classroom? This will make a difference when it comes to
organization. To make sure you get a good start, make sure you have plenty
of drawing paper, colored paper, scissors, glue, crayons, markers, sharpies
(I know, I know, but they are the greatest! *L*), and good teacher reference
books for lesson ideas. The way I always make my order is to sit down and go
through the catalog page by page and pick out everything I want. Then I add
it all up and start cutting. I find it easier to eliminate those things I
know I just want, or to order less of things I need. If you have no budget
to worry about, get whatever supplies you want, as you'll probably get less
financial support next year!
