What does a tricyle, a case of copy paper, a bus ride and a case of science fair project display boards have in common?
You could be lucky enough to receive one of these items for free. That is correct! Chicago School Supply is giving away the following educational prizes:

Spring 2009 Winners
Norma Velazquez- Pilsen Community Academy – Chicago
This is my first year as a third grade bilingual teacher. During this year I had the opportunity to teach while advancing my own educational career. I am eager to continue learning new teaching strategies to better my students. It has been a challenge, but they say that the first year is the hardest.
While searching the net for new websites that cater to teachers, I stumbled upon Chicago School Supply. I was introduced to many great ideas on their Education BLOG and discovered many free projects to incorporate into my classroom. What I most enjoy about the Chicago School Supply’s website is its navigational simplicity. I plan on purchasing the Ant Hill kit for the 2009-2010 school year so my students can be introduced to an ant’s life cycle.
Edmee Cappas Velez- Inter-American School – Chicago
I am a Special Education teacher at Inter-American School, a dual language program that approaches education through the study of the America’s. I provide services for grades Kindergarten through 5th grade and with that said you can understand how time and resources is valued.
The Schoodoodle site is one of the many sites I am able to find free lesson plans that can be easily downloaded and adapted for my student’s and those I tutor. It’s a great feature and it has given me more time to spend with my students.
