I just met for the first time with my director, and I basically have an empty classroom... I've picked out tables and chairs... but I can still get whatever I need for the classroom. I've asked for laptops and an LCD projector, but we think we can get that stuff from technology and not have to spend my budget... so my question is this... what should I get??

I have materials, and I have a few that I'm ordering... but other than that.. what would make this a "cool room" for these kids??

This made me think of a story... about five years ago, I moved into a classroom that had been left by a teacher who moved to a new district. In the room I found this set of posters that I thought would be fun to make a bulletin board with... Albert Einstein, Cesar Chavez, Jim Henson (this was a fifth grade GT class, and I'm thinking gifted people.. ). Anyway... I decided to put up the picture with a "Who Am I?" heading, and let them find out who the person was... There were ten posters... and on each one it had "Think Different!" (anyone know these posters??) Anyway, because I'm a "good teacher" I decided I'd laminate them so they wouldn't get torn up.... the box was missing, but they were in a plastic bag...

Welll... for some reason I decided to look up these posters online.. imagine my disappointment (just after laminating them) to find that a complete set of ten was selling on eBay for $50.00! Today, they sell for about $35.00 each!! I still have all of them... all ten... but laminating lowers the value.. I almost cried... that's the last time I ever laminated a poster... but, we have enjoyed them.. I don't staple or put tacks in... I am very careful to not let them get bent or messed up... they're an amazing set.. they were sent to teachers in the late 90's from Apple Computer as part of a promotion... *sigh*
