Homeschool Essentials

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

I thought it would be helpful to put together a list of items that you may need for homeschooling. During this time of uncertainty and with many stores out of items, Amazon is a great resource for supplies. Some items may take longer to ship than normal, but it is worth not having to go to the store. I actually just purchased many of these items for my boys. If you can think of anything else that I should add to the list, please let me know! (The items that I ordered are supposed to arrive on Sunday)

Crayola Thank A Teacher #CrayolaThanks

Crayola Thank A Teacher Campaign

Crayola wants to give back to some of the most important people in our children’s lives…..their teachers! Earlier this year in honor or Teacher Appreciation Day on May 8, 2018, Crayola announced their “Thank A Teacher” Campaign. This amazing initiative allows your children to create and upload a teacher thank you note right on the Crayola website! If you post your photo to Instagram or Twitter, be sure to use the hashtag #CrayolaThanks so that Crayola can easily find your photo. And, Crayola has their own gallery where you can search and find thank you notes by school or teacher. I just love this idea and what a fun way to give back! Many of you may not know this, but my degree is in education, so as an educator myself, I find this such a rewarding way to give back!

Crayola Thank A Teacher Contest

In addition, through August 25, 2018 Crayola is having an amazing contest for those that thank a teacher. 

Ten grand prize packs will be awarded, inclusive of:
  • $10,000 classroom makeover for the teacher
  • One year supply of Crayola products for the school
  • $1,000 scholarship for the student
  • $1,000 gift card for both the teacher and school 
  • Free CreatEd seminar for the school

In addition to the grand prizes, one lucky entrant will have his or her thank you note featured on a special pack of Crayola crayons this holiday. In addition, a weekly sweepstakes will run concurrently with the contest, offering entrants a chance to win $500 gift cards for themselves and their teachers. The contest and sweepstakes will run through August 25, 2018.
