Scholastic Teacher Express' End of the Year Dollar Deals Sales

It's here! Scholastic Teacher Express is holding their end of the year Dollar Deals Sales again.

You might remember me writing about it last year when I bought $187.60 worth of eBooks for $16.00!

I love this sale. As a homeschooling mom or teacher, the Dollar Deals are a treasure trove of over 1,000 eBooks for grades PreK-8 that are specially priced for $1, $3 and $5. You can find everything from activity books to lessons plans, and many other teaching resources. You can find downloads for almost any subject and they also have a large Spanish/ELL section.

It’s a really great way for teachers to stock up on resources for next year and for parents to stock up on activities for the children to practice reading and/or math skills during the summer. Avoid Summer Brain Drain with these fun and educational eBooks that keep your kid's skills sharp!

The sale officially starts tomorrow, but you can get a sneak peek today. This 3-day sale is their biggest sale of the year. And you can even pay with PayPal.

I shared my tips for
taking advantage of the sale last year, but I'll share them again, because my 3-step process really is the most sensible way to shop!

First, set a price limit for yourself (i.e., $10, $15, $20, etc.).


Second, start on the first page and then just add whichever products you like to your shopping cart, OR look at your wish list (if you made one last year), and see which products you'd like to use now.

Finally, when you finish, go through your shopping cart and start thinning it out by moving products to your wish list. That way you won't loose them, but will be able to buy them later...or at next year's sale.

This 3-day sale ends at midnight on Sunday, May 12th.

Happy shopping!!
