Hello there everyone!  I feel very honored to be guest blogging for Lori at Cachey Mama's Classroom for her weekly Wishlist Wednesday post!  I am a mother of an almost three-year old and a classroom teacher to 18 fabulous 2nd graders!  I have also taught kindergarten and first grade and can tell you that there is nothing I would rather do than spend all day inspiring and learning from little people!

There are definitely two things that have been on my mind lately that I would love to have. 

First up {for the kiddos}....

An endless supply of glue sticks!!!

Why is it that January hits every year and I am always begging for more glue?  It doesn't matter how many glue sticks a child brings at the beginning of school, they always seem to disappear.  I'll admit, we use glue sticks a lot in my room.  There is definitely no shortage on art projects, student-made vocabulary flashcards or "notebooking" activities and all of those require that wonderful stick of glue.  I realize that liquid glue last longer but I cringe every time I see a student with a bottle in hand.  I've "just a dot, then you stop"'d my heart out and liquid glue still ends up making a wet mess.  Boy, does that make me grateful for glue sticks- even if they do dry up quickly!

And secondly {for myself}...

I would LOVE to have my very own binding machine!

I can definitely work my magic with a little laminate and some binding!  Don't you just love making class books for your library?  Not to mention, a bound copy of a child's writing masterpiece makes me grin from ear to ear.  There is something to be said for the published look!  If I had one of these sweet things I would bind away!  Wouldn't you?

Thanks to Lori for inviting me to ramble on about my wish list! :)  Drop by and say hi at Mrs. Lirette's Learning Detectives!
