Kinder Tips, Hints & Ideas for Kindergarten Teachers


Buying Resources
  • Garage sales and thrift stores are great for resources at bargains prices. Also, don't forget about ebay- there are some great deals to be had there as well. Often on ebay you can find a daycare that is closing or a retiring teacher that is selling everything. Also, you can make many fun games yourself for no cost at all.
  • A great option is to buy resources from dollar stores (or in Japan 100 yen stores). You can get all sorts of items such as colored bins, tubs and caddies, stationery.
  • Buy your pocket charts at Wal Mart - they are much cheaper at around $9.99 each (look in the Back to School section).
  • Buying books can be expensive - however, there are cheaper options: Scholastic book orders/sales, garage sales, thrift stores, and discount book stores. Don't spend all of your money on books, you can collect them throughout the school year for free using your Scholastic Bonus Points. Scholastic will also hold warehouse sales two or three times a year in most states, you can go directly to their warehouse and shop for books at half-price.
