Teacher’s Black Box December 2016

Teacher’s  Black Box is a box of items which will include “basic and innovative supplies to enhance their educational impact”.  Now I am not a teacher but if you put a chance to get stationery in front of me, there’s only a small chance I’ll turn it down.  They also say there will be a snack in every box.  Boxes start at $20.00 but go down with longer terms.  Normally the shipping on this one would have stopped me from ordering but they were offering a promo code “ONETIME” that gave you free shipping on orders over $50.  That code is still valid so make sure you use it if you want to sign up.  Let’s see what joy they have delivered to me today.

20161229_152311There seems to be a jumble of things in the box this month.  The squiggles are in festive colours, but I still hate them.  They don’t include an info card so it’s a guess each month as to what is inside.

20161229_152321First up we have an award.  There are no markings on it so it can be for anything you need to hand one out for.  I think this might be a good way to get the girls to listen.  If you get into trouble the least in a day you get to have the trophy for the next day.

20161229_152331You can never have enough disinfecting wipes on hand.  These are going straight into my purse and will be used for many things.  I’d leave them in my car but it’s winter and they’ll be frozen when I need them.

20161229_152340These are recognition awards.  I don’t have a use for these so maybe I’ll see if Bug’s teacher would like them and give them to her.  There are 36 in the pack so that’ll cover both of the classes she teaches if she wants.

20161229_152351I’ve never seen hand sanitizer like this before.  I originally thought it was breath spray! Guess I’m lucky to have read the bottle before diving in.  It doesn’t smell like alcohol and two sprays did my whole hands.

20161229_152405We have two candy cane pencils out next.  I guess it was on the other side but the pencils say Teacher’s Black Box in gold letters.  I will put these away until next winter for use.

20161229_152415Keeping up with the candy canes, we have a snowman candy cane pen.  It writes well with black ink and like the pencils, it will appear next year to make people wonder if I’m insane.

20161229_152437They promise to always include a snack and this month it is four mini candy canes.  Unfortunately three of them didn’t survive the trip.  It’s alright though, fit in my mouth better this way.

This month was just okay for me.  A few of the things are really great and a couple are not for me, but that’s only because I’m not a teacher.  I can see how these things would be useful for a teacher and they also work well for those of us who love these things.  I’m not sure how any of these particular items are innovative but maybe I’m missing that part of it.   You can find this box on CrateJoy if you are interested.
