Reddit Gifts for Teachers ROCKS!

Last year a teacher friend received a bunch of goodies for her classroom from an anonymous gift giver through Reddit's Gifts for Teachers. She reminded me about it this year right before the deadline. I didn't think I would be matched with a gifter as there were over 8,000 teachers applying and about 5,000 gift givers, but I was! A lovely gal from Texas sent my class 60 sticky note pads!

Each of my students has a pencil bag in their Reading Workshop binder that includes a pack of 3" x 3" sticky notes. My students use them daily during independent reading time and I knew that they were going to need more throughout the year, so I asked for this simple gift, but I wasn't expecting so many to arrive! When I brought out the giant stack and explained that an anonymous person gifted them to us they were so appreciative and also excited because now there are color options (I only purchased yellow for them).


Thank you to our awesome gift giver and to Reddit Gifts for Teachers for putting this together!

  1. I did the reddit gifts teacher exchange too! My box was a bit random, but I'm grateful for anything really! I got a jar of crayons (yes, jar), 5 79ers composition books, and a box of color pencils.

    Looks like you're set on post-its for the foreseeable future!
