With Amazon Prime Day upon us, it's a great time for teachers (or friends of teachers) to stock up on some much needed classroom supplies. Here's a list I've generated of great deals and items that you may not have thought of that are within your budget.
1. Classroom Timers for Teachers Kids Large Magnetic Digital Timer 2 Pack
You Save:$3.30 (33%)
Timers are the best way to keep your classroom on track and make every minute of your transition time. While timers can be placed on your slide shows and projected to the students, sometimes the internet goes down or you simply need a timer real quick. Student groups can also use these if they are timing an activity or pacing themselves without having to pull out their cell phones.
2. New Larger Size! | The Original Table Spots for Teachers | No Staining, No Shadowing, Complete Erase! Dry Erase, 10 Pack Multicolor Circles, Wall Stickers, Decals
You Save:$4.00 (20%)
Table spots keep students from having any nasty squabbles about who is sitting where. They are also dry erase, so you can write the students' names on them, let the students write their answers on them, or even put a problem on each one that the students have to solve. These can also be used on walls as a sign showing students where to go when grouping them and as sitting spots during reading time.
3. iBayam Journal Planner Pens Colored Pens Fine Point Markers Fine Tip Drawing Pens Fineliner Pen for Journaling Writing Note Taking Calendar Coloring Art Office Back to School Supplies, 18-Pack
Any student who has had me for the past decade can tell you about my obsession with these pens. They have a precise, fine line that doesn't bleed through paper. This is especially needed for anyone who has students annotate. Plus they come in some terrific colors!
4. DinoFire Wireless Presenter, Hyperlink Volume Control Presentation Clicker RF 2.4GHz USB PowerPoint Clicker Presentation Remote Control Pointer Slide Advancer (Black)
You Save:$3.20$3.20 (20%)
If you haven't already invested in a wireless presenter, consider this as your sign. These handy gadgets allow you to teach from anywhere in the classroom. This gives you the opportunity to walk around, making sure students are able to follow along in their notes or checking their work. Students also love to use them during their presentations, which helps them develop their public speaking skills.
5. 50 PCS Push Pin with Wooden Clips, Durable Wooden Push Pins, Decorative Pushpins Tacks Thumbtacks, Tacks for Cork Board Artworks Notes Photos, Craft Projects, Offices and Homes
I love these and Command Clips because they allow you to quickly hang student work without poking holes in them. You can place these in a row on your bulletin board. Rather than having to staple or push pin student papers or artwork, you can quickly clip them up. This is a huge time saver and encourages you to switch out student work more frequently.
6. Classroom Creation Guide
As a final note, don't forget that I am also running a deal on Classroom Creation Guide! It is 30% off, now only $13.27. This is a terrific companion book as teachers are setting up their classrooms and preparing for the new school year.
Happy shopping! Please share this post with others and leave a comment with any other great finds for teachers!
