    What is something that you have bought for your classroom that has been life changing? Last year I invested a great deal of money into flexible seating and it’s changed my classroom, the atmosphere, how I teach, and how the kids learn.

    Looking to invest some money into something this summer that is equally life changing. Thinking about STEM boxes or a new writing center.

    When I started here 2 years ago everything in my room was probably 15-20+ years old. Help me update what should I invest in?

    For the following school year, I ordered a frozen yogurt machine and will have it installed in my classroom in July or August. My students needed encouragement and positive reinforcement that was authentic. So, frozen yogurt...and it is a nice treat for me before I leave.
    I feel that this new approach to positive reinforcement will be exciting for my students. Anticipated benefits include improved attendance, improved behavior, improved academic performance, and improved classroom performance.
    I do not know if this was a crazy impulse buy or an innovative idea that is also an impulse buy.

    Sounds like an SNL bit.

    Yeah....I know, but the school district approved of this plan.
