I was scrolling through Instagram last night and noticed the #SisterhoodoftheTravellingGift hashtag on many of my virtual friends’ posts. As I followed the links, I came upon a post by Zoe at A Quirky Bird explaining the details behind the idea…in short, it looked fun! So, I immediately contacted my #Made4Math buddies, Pam and Shelli who agreed, if fashionistas can gift clothing and accessories, teachers can gift school supplies:)
My favorite part of going back to school has always been shopping for supplies. I remember telling my grandmother when I was 8, how much I loved shopping for school. Bless her heart, she thought I meant for clothes and told me a story about a pair of new shoes she got as a little girl. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that I meant that I liked the binders, the old cardboard school boxes, and the paste. But still to this day, I get a bit giddy as I see the colored paperclips, new planners, and fancy pencils being carefully arranged down the aisles of my local big box store.
So, if you are like me and love this stuff too,Join the Back to School Supply SwapWhat is it?The School Supply Swap is a fun gift exchange between July 27 and Aug 7.A gift exchange? Let me explain…
Imagine…your favorite parcel carrier pulls into the drive and knocks on your door to deliver a brightly colored package addressed to YOU. You carry it inside…eager to open it. What could it be??? Most assuredly that whatever is in the package was carefully selected just for you and will be the perfect addition to your classroom this fall, because this School Supply Swap was planned by teachers for teachers.
How does it work?
You will be matched up with another teacher and will be provided results from his/her online questionnaire, so that you can find out a bit more about this new friend. You will select a few school related items based upon the responses on the survey…something that you think that they would enjoy and would fit into their room’s decor. There is a prize for cutest wrapping, so box up your goodies, snap an image of your package and post to Twitter with the hashtag #SupplySwap.
The cost of the gift should be around $15 (excluding shipping) and should be shipped between July 27 and August 7. It will be like a little Back to School surprise!!!
Ready to join the fun?
If you would like to participate to connect with other teachers from across the country, complete this Google form by July 15 and we will match you up.
Note: To keep shipping costs down, only teachers from the same country will be matched.
REAL mail filled with lots of goodies just in time for the new school year! We can’t wait to see what the parcel carrier brings to you!!!Lots of love! Cindy, Pam, and Shelli xoxoxo
