This is the first year back to teaching for my boyfriend after a two year absence and I wanted to make him a teacher survival kit of sorts. I made a mini one in the beginning of the year but wanna make a big one for christmas. He teaches high school science.
So far I have..
Dry erase markers
Cough drops
Hershey kisses
Stress ball
Any other ideas?
I wanted to maybe package it in a new lunch bag with silverware. And does anyone know where I can order those motivational posters?

Vitamin C lozenges
hand sanitizer
stickers (okay, maybe not, but I taught HS for a while and still did stickers and the kids - even the boys - liked them)
fun pen for grading (seriously, anything to help make it even a little more interesting)

Hmmm, that's all I can think of at the moment.

Also, THANK YOU SO MUCH for this idea!  I'm a teacher now and have a secret Santa and this is something that I can totally do for her!

The stickers are a great idea! He teaches esl students and they love when they get recognition for good work.

Water bottle
Drink mixes (ie crystal light, instant tea...)

Smile like you mean it, and let yourself let go.

I got him the water bottle already! He loves frogs so I got an awesome kermit one;) He doesn't drink coffee so the mugs out and he really only drinks water, and sometimes juice or gatorade but not often. he's a health nut.

You can find fun science stuff at Professor Bunsen: http://www.profbunsen.com.au/.  They have all sorts of little goodies such as rubber duckies that change colour in hot water, balloon helicopters and super bubble mix.  The stuff is just fun in general but could also be useful for in the classroom/lab.

So much to make, so little time!

paper clips
binder clips
a big pack of looseleaf paper for the kids who say they have no paper
candy for kids (only sometimes, but it can mean a lot after a really tough test)
Emergency lunch of shelf-stable food in case he forgets his
Scratch and Sniff stickers!
I second the post-its, you can never have enough
for a science classroom, wet wipes for cleaning up hands and surfaces


Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
