Teacher Appreciation is one of our favorite times of the year!

And now Educents is celebrating teachers with a SALE on all educational resources available on our site!

30 Slot Mailbox – When 15 slots isn’t enough, double down with this 30 slot mailbox organizer. The slots are slightly skinnier, at 12 1/2″ x 10″ x 1.5″, which is perfect for when you have a few papers for, say, 30 different students.

Classroom Craft Keeper – This is the perfect blend of organizing paper and craft supplies. It features 10 shelves for papers and smaller supplies, as well as four drawers for your miscellaneous crafts.

Pencil Sharpeners

Electric Pencil Sharpener – This quiet, heavy-duty pencil sharpener was designed by teachers. You get to watch the clear side fill up with pencil shavings! One sign of a productive day.

Manual Pencil Sharpener – Love the old-school pencil sharpeners that require some hand-cranking? This is the classic choice.

Electric Pencil Sharpener (for home or office) – One happy Educents shopper said:

After going through a number of less expensive sharpeners, I decided to purchase this one. It’s for my home office, but would work in a classroom or a homeschool as well. It’s very sturdy, and it doesn’t chew up my pencils when sharpening them. I think I’ll have this one for the long haul 🙂

Eye Lighter Guided Reading Strips – An Educents shopper left this note:

I use these for my dyslexia kids that I tutor. If you use a black marker to draw a line in the crease the kids light up at seeing things so much better!

Little Red Tool Box: Sentence Building Tiles Super Set – This one’s an Educents favorite! Here’s what one shopper had to say:

So my kindergartener is smart, but in very common boy fashion really dislikes handwriting. These magnet tiles help him work on sentence structure, sight word identification, motor skills, and his creativity without picking up a pencil.
