What a week! We should celebrate like this every week. On our last day of DEN Teacher Appreciation Week we have the support of two more great partners.
Our friends at AllKidsCrafts, a fantastic site for teachers as well as parents, have donated free six-month accounts to all STARS.
To discover how you can take advantage of this special offer, go to: http://community-beta.discoveryeducation.com/teacherappreciation and log in as a STAR.
AllKidsCrafts.com can be described in three words: easy, creative, and learning. It’s easy because we create weekly lesson plans and supply printable templates and directions. It’s creative because all our activities are centered around play and encourage artistic expression. It fosters learning because everything we do is geared toward early childhood literacy. Subscribers to AllKidsCrafts.com receive access to our searchable database of more than 100 top-quality craft ideas and printables (with new items added weekly).Subscribers also receive a “Weekly E-venture!” newsletter written by an early childhood literacy specialist. Each week’s E-venture explores a new theme and supplies the craft ideas, printable templates, web links, songs, facts, science experiments, book lists and even snack recipes that relate to that subject. Our subscribers range from teachers to parents to grandparents and all love the convenience and learning fun AllKidsCrafts.com provides.
Also, we’ll be giving away one “Pick-a-Pack” prize from iaPeel every hour today (12 ET to 6 PM ET) to lucky STARs who post a comment to this blog telling us about their favorite teacher ever.
The iaPeel “Pick-a-Packs” include a fan t-shirt and 60 total skins in packs of five for any combination of devices (retail $180).
It’s the coolest new way to add a personal and protective touch to your iPod, Nano or iPhone. All you need is an inkjet printer and your imagination – iaPeel makes it that simple! The glossy synthetic skin material sticks to your player and leaves no residue, allowing you to change designs anytime you choose. Plus it keeps your player good as new, by protecting it from scratches.
- Easy to design: Use our software, or come up with a design of your own.
- Easy to print: Just run it through your inkjet printer and you’re good to go.
- Easy to apply: Our videos show you the way – or just follow the directions on the back of the skin.
- Easy to remove: Change your mood? Have a new design idea in mind? No sweat. Your iaPeel removes easily so you can update your look at any time.
