Staples Educator Appreciation Days

I woke up early and decided to check out my first Staples Educator Appreciation Day.  The first 200 educators were to receive a free gift and they were supposed to be running specials.

Here's my free gift pack:

While searching the Crayola products, I found this fun dry-erase center.  I thought how cool for Lydia.  You can change the inserts out underneath the sheet of plastic.  So I figure I can use this for many worksheets.  If it works the way I hope, may get them for all the kids.

Found some fun manipulatives and thinking these chains may make a good visual reward system.  I am working on that. 

I got Lydia some Spectrum books (they were 30% off with special coupon for today), some flash cards (40% off discount), color pencils, construction paper packs, and color pencils that were on sale.  Not sure if I will go next year or just plan better to know what workbooks they have and would be nice to purchase. 

Have a great weekend.


  1. That looks like a lot of fun for your kiddos. Thanks for joining the blog hop.

  2. We have that dry-erase center and love it! We use it in the car mostly, the kids fight over it, maybe we need to get another (or 2!).
