I don't know if everyone has such a store in their area. I didn't when I worked in Michigan. I researched it, there was not one. Here in northern Indiana there is!! I went is August before school started and waited in a VERY long line for a VERY long time, and when I got inside they didn't have a whole lot left. I was so excited to go again and check it out this month. I was able to get there early and I got some great things! Everything at the store is donated and once it's gone it's gone so not everyone gets great stuff every time, but this month I did! Take a look....
You can shop once a month at our teacher store, you have to have a teacher ID and your school has to be registered. I know there are others out there who have a store near them - it is defiantly worth checking out!!
I can't wait to see what they have next month!
And I just found out I have $200 to spend on my classroom. Of course I need some things like ink for my printer and chart paper, but what else should I get?? Any suggestions for a 5th/6th grade classroom? I would love to hear what you would buy!
