Teacher’s Black Box April 2017

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.


Well, the box had something on top so there was no way to see what was hiding in there this month.


The thing that was covering all of the top of the box was a large colouring page.  It looks to me like a big snake eye.  I have a few adult colouring books so this will be fun to do.


Next we have six pocket calculators.  There are two of each colour stacked up in this picture.  My children love calculators so they will each get one of these and the rest will be saved until we need them.  20170430_184939

There was a great score of Sharpie markers in there too!  There are fifteen of the normal fine point ones in an assortment of non-standard colours.  There are also fifteen of the ultra fine point markers in some really great colours.  I could use these to colour in that page from above or just hide them from my family and bring them out one at a time to extend my joy.


They are back to having the snack in there.  Island Fruits flavoured Welch’s Fruit Snacks.


There was a note in the box saying that there would be seeds to plant in honour of Earth Day, unless you were an international subscriber and then you got these page flags instead.  I use these as bookmarks so I’m okay getting them.

This month was fantastic for me.   Normally 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.  There was no treat this time but the rest of the box more than made up for it.  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.
