As an elementary teacher, my bags are always full!
Here are some things that are always in my teacher bag!
Wallet, keys, cellphone
I habitually have a small makeup bag filled with everyday necessities, just in case I need to touch up throughout the busy work day.
Makeup items: concealer, brow pencil, brow gel, mascara, lip balm, mini dry shampoo, mini hand lotion, mini body spray
These items are for crisis situations. Especially on field trips!
Emergency items: ibuprofen (for me, not the students), band-aids, antibacterial wipes, tissues, hand sanitizer, hair-ties, bobby pins
Snacks are very important to me. My students, too!
I always have some extra snacks just in case someone forgets a snack or lunch.
Some snack items both my students and I enjoy: popcorn, trail mix, granola bars, and pretzels
Lesson plan book, bullet journal, iPad, iPad keyboard, chargers, pens, pencils, markers, stickers
Bullet Journal Items:
I pretty much carry my bullet journal pouch everywhere I go! Since I use it so often at work, I always bring it with me.
Most of these items go along with my teacher essentials, but if you’d like to know more specifics, check out my post How to Start a Bullet Journal for some of my favorite bullet journaling materials!
Those are my teacher bag essentials!
