Hi I have recently signed up to a supply agency as a stepping stone between achieving QTS and getting my very own classroom. However, being new to this, I feel unprepared for whatever lies in wait and want to change that before I actually start going out to schools. I'm looking for advice on what resources to take with me more than anything. Some of the things I'm putting together include a set of different coloured pens to fit in with any marking policy, a bunch of pencils and rulers in case they are needed for the children, stickers and a personalised stamp, possibly a set of about 15 whiteboards and markers (not sure how necessary this is), bits and pieces like blutak, paperclips, stapler, etc. I also want to take a variety of lesson and filler ideas for the times when there may be no work left by the class teacher. I was looking at some books for this as well as resources from this website. I'd appreciate any opinions on the things I have mentioned so far, any good or even essential things I have missed out and some story books that would be great for adapting across year groups for either just reading to the class or basing lessons on. Thanks in advance for any help.
