Free Hot Samples: Back to School Freebies for Terrific Teachers
Who was your favorite teacher? Everybody had one: Mine was Mrs. Dudley, 6th grade. She made learning fun, it wasn’t a chore to be in her class everyday. She was teaching us even when all of us thought we were playing. Teaching sneak attack, like teaching ninja warrior.
In honor of all our favorite teachers, this week teachers can score freebies for themselves and their class. As we all know (if you don’t, you should), teachers spend a lot of their own money on supplies for their class. Crazy, right? It shouldn’t happen, but it does. Maybe we should all ask our kids teachers if they need anything donated to the class (art supplies, tissues, cleaning wipes, etc.).
Hopefully, this list will help them out a little. 2011 Stossel in the Classroom DVDs. Two to choose from. Various topics picked from John Stossel’s television program to promote classroom discussions. Free DVDs are available in English and Spanish.
