Here we are again, another school year is upon us. Students across the state are heading into the classroom, greeting friends old and new with a common refrain. “Hey, do you have a pencil I could borrow?”
Replace the word pencil with just about any other school related object and it’s probably been said as well. Pencils, pens, paper, folders, erasers, calculators. Even though school has just started, everyone has forgotten something. Pencils are traded for pens, paper for colored pencils, glue for tape, the list goes on.
As a teacher or administrator, you do your best to make sure the students have what they need to learn. School supply lists are sent out weeks in advance, but their neglect has led to a massive trading market in your classroom the likes of which haven’t been seen since the silk road.
Fortunately, there is a solution. Send this band of barterers down to the school store where they don’t have to give up supplies to get what they need. Geddes has all of the basics you need to stock the store, as well as novety items like pencil toppers that will make writing fun!
At Geddes, we have the school supplies that can help stock your school store and be kept in a teacher’s desk as rewards. Novelty school supplies are another great way to create a sense of fun, excitement and to leave your students with a lasting impression. Classroom incentives are a great way to motivate students.
