Christmas In July!

I've been hard at work getting ready for my new life as a Library Media Specialist!  I've been working on a "We're Wild for Reading" for a year theme to start off our year in the library.  I also want to do different themes for each month of the year.  Recently, though, my focus has been on combining my 16 years of classroom into the library (and yes, I have purged purged purged and shared!!!).  The next thing on the list is to clean up the library (shelves, decorating, etc) and then work on lesson plans, themed centers for PK-5, and....well, that's probably enough considering school starts August 13!!!!!!

So, how are you getting ready for school?  Walmart and Teacher's Notebook want to help you out!  Keep reading below (and I promise I will be sharing more soon!).

Teacher's Notebook is doing a special promotion that starts THIS Friday!  I'm joining in with my entire store being discounted 25% off!

Another great deal....if you haven't heard about it through Walmart.

This is from their site:
BENTONVILLE, Ark. – July 21, 2014 – For the first time ever, Walmart is offering teachers across the country 10 percent savings on classroom supplies. The retailer announced the teacher-exclusive savings event as data shows 53 percent of teachers received less in funding last year. Walmart has donated more than $20 million to U.S. educators in the last five years.
Teachers who shop at Walmart stores during its Teacher Appreciation Week, July 25 to 31, are eligible to receive a Walmart eGift Card for 10 percent back on nearly 15,000 products – everything from pencils and glue to classroom décor.
“On average, teachers around the country spend about $1,000 readying their classrooms, and half of that comes from reaching into their own wallets to make sure students have what they need,” said Steve Bratspies, executive vice president, general merchandise for Walmart U.S. “We’ve had a commitment to supporting teachers in the communities we serve for many years. This program is one more way we’re helping lessen the cost, increase support and set teachers up for success.”
The savings process for teachers is simple:
  • Shop Walmart stores for classroom supplies.
  • Visit by August 15 to register receipts by entering teacher’s school information and receipt transaction code.
  • Savings on eligible items from select departments* will be delivered on a Walmart eGift card via email within 14 days of submitting the receipt online.
