Well our second semester started! Half way through the school year and in our Resource Room (special education) we are finding new ways to support our unique range of kiddos we care for. We have been presented with some challenges and took them head on! But with the unique kids come unique lessons, crafts, and rewards!
One thing I learned though- it can quickly add up! And Teachers pay for a lot of this out of their own pockets. That is way I am starting to like Staples more and more! In their Education Supplies, they have things for teachers from Classroom Decor, arts & crafts to classroom storage and globes. They also have a really great reward program for Teachers.
Staples is dedicated to keeping teachers stocked up on supplies all year. So their Teacher Reward Program offers free shipping on every order, 5% back in rewards, and 10% back in rewards for teacher and art supplies. They also have bonus events like the Reward A Classroom. When you, as a teacher, sign up for the rewards program you can tell parents to link back to your account. Then when the parents purchases something you get an additional 2% back!
Parents: If you are shopping for some refueling of supplies for your students be sure to use their FIND A TEACHER option to give back to your child’s classroom!
Now to help us get through the rest of the year I received a great Gift Bag from Staples. And since I am a para, the bag was gifted to the wonderful teacher I work under. I have learned so much from her, so the least I could do is help her stock up our Resource Room! In this bag we received the following:
- · Carson-Dellosa Publishing Colorful Cut-Outs® (perfect for cubby tags, game pieces, desk tags, name tags, awards, crafts and more)
- · Carson-Dellosa Publishing 4” EZ Letters (Red, Blue, Yellow)
- · Carson-Dellosa Publishing Mini Bulletin Board Set (Winter)
- · Carson-Dellosa Publishing 2 1/4” Scalloped Border (14 varieties!)

The teacher I work with was really excited. It came just in time for Christmas and so it made the perfect gift for her. All the items were beautiful, and great quality! We used the Library Pockets as little “gift bags” for our students and just simply put a candy cane and a few pencils for them. They may also be used for a cute phonogram games for our kiddos. With our 100th day of school coming up, I am sure we will find some other fun activities or uses for all these great supplies.
