If you are someone who uses their iPad for digital planning, writing, drawing, or maybe you thought it was out of your price range, you need this Amazon Stylus pen for ipad with palm rejection. It is comparable in size and accuracy to its more pricey competitor. It is touch activated and automatically powers off to save battery life. I like that it offers a C type charging port so that I can charge my ipad and stylus at the same time. This stylus is just as precise and highly sensitive as the Apple Pencil without the higher price tag. I am also a huge fan of the design with a better grip so that a silicone sleeve isn't really necessary to adjust the grip.
Whether you are virtual teaching, hybrid, remote, whatever one staple every teacher should have is a good microphone. It doesn't have to be the most expensive one but because students require quality, clarity, and understanding, it is definitely a must have for your teacher desk! This microphone sticks out to me because it's USB compatible, plug and play, contains a tripod for easy mounting on your desk, and comes with a pop filter & shock mount. Plus it's relatively inexpensive and works just like the more pricey competitors.
One of my favorite fidgets for students is this Push Pop Bubble Sensory Fidget. Because these bubbles make a slight popping sound, they can be used for any student (or teacher) that needs to destress. This is a great fidget for students with autism, anxiety, ADHD, and can even be used as a learning tool. For example, students can segment phonemes by popping the bubbles in each color row to get a visual and tactile input. When you've popped your bubbles, flip it over and start again.
I am obsessed with this foldable and adjustable monitor stand. It gives me that extra space for storage and organization which is definitely necessary for my teacher desk. It is also ergonomic so you are looking at your monitor at eye level and not straining your neck. I love that it has a built in pull out stand for my phone or tablet and this cute little storage drawer for convenient storage
This Jelly Comb bluetooth keyboard is my absolute favorite Amazon find for virtual teaching. It comes with a silicone keyboard skin to protect your keyboard from wear and tear, and it can connect to two different devices simultaneously, like your tablet and iphone or your laptop, and you can switch device at the press of a button. Not only that but it has a built in stand slot for your tablet or phone , which makes it easy to maneuver and type on your device. This keyboard comes in multiple colors but I love this mint green!
I get a lot of questions about which stylus I use for my digital planning and iPad. I actually use an Apple Pencil but like some of my students, I struggled with maintaining control, this silicone sleeve gives you a better grip on the slippery apple pencil and matched my composition notebook iPad case which is hitting on all the teacher aesthetic.
This paper feel screen protector literally feels you are writing on paper. If you are a teacher who uses a tablet or ipad for note taking, digital planning (which I'm obsessed with currently), or anything where you write on your ipad, then you need this paper feel screen protector. It's super easy to install and comes in a pack of one or two with all the tools you need apply it seemlessly. This is a really great amazon find for students, too.
