Vista Print

For the last few weeks I have been having a lot of fun with Vista Print.  What is Vista Print?

With more than 13 million customers worldwide, VistaPrint is a leading online supplier of high-quality graphic design services and customized printed products to small businesses and consumers. We offer high-quality solution for graphic design and full-color printing in small quantities, without the premium price.

Vista Print is a godsend for teachers.  They have daily free items.  Yes, you read that right.  FREE.  All you have to pay is shipping and handling.  You can order up to 10 free items per order.  How awesome is that?  They carry almost any graphics product you can think of, from postcards to business cards to car door magnets.

If you are an office supply junkie like me, I guarantee Vista Print will become a vice, an addiction.  It’s crazy!  I have already placed 5 orders and received 3 of them.  The quality is top-notch and everything is perfect.  I can’t wait to start using everything.  Now if only school would start…

I put together a document with some of the items I have ordered so far.  I gleaned most of these ideas from all over the web, putting my own twist on them.  The best ideas have all been gathered on this great website, so be sure to explore it.  It seems that a lot of primary teachers use Vista Print, so I did a lot of tweaking to get items that were cool enough for 6th graders without being babyish.  Plus, I wanted each item to serve a purpose in my room, one that would help me stay organized

Rapunzel’s Revenge

Congratulations to Shannon and Dean Hale! Today, Al Roker announced that Rapunzel’s Revenge is the newest pick for Al’s Book Club for Kids! How exciting is that? It is wonderful to see a national media outlet embracing graphic novels this way. Hopefully, this will legitimize graphic novels for some of those parents who just don’t want to believe that “comic books” are legitimate novels.

I loved Rapunzel’s Revenge- check out my review of it here. More importantly, my students just ate it up. Boys and girls alike loved the book and were passing it around before school ended. They will be thrilled to hear that thanks to Al Roker, the book’s publication date has been moved up and it is on sale now!
