Amazon Prime Day for Teachers

It’s almost time for Amazon Prime Day! Is Amazon Prime Day for Teachers too? You bet!

I’m a big fan of Amazon — have you heard the story of when I bought 1,000 worms on Amazon? Well… I shared it at ISTE this year and yes, you can buy worms for your classroom compost bin on Amazon… (scroll down for the links)

Since it’s a big Amazon week, I put together a list of favorites I hope you’ll enjoy. Feel free to share this link with a friend or comment with a favorite at the bottom of this post!

Amazon Prime Day for Teachers

Keep checking back… I’ll update this post with more favorites and special Amazon Prime deals throughout the day!

Books About Education I Love

Books Not About Education I Love (But Totally Relatable)

  • The Power of Habit — This book has so many stories I reference when talking about education
  • Outliers — I’ve added this to my “reread” list as I devour the new season of Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast
  • Steve Jobs — I read this book on my iPhone, and two thousand swipes later it was well worth it

Super Fun Techy Accessories

Must-Have Classroom Helpers

Productivity Tools I Can’t Live Without

  • Touchscreen Gloves — It’s super warm here in New Jersey today but these are a winter favorite I love sharing
  • AirPods from Apple — A splurge, but they definitely come in handy when listening to podcasts on the go
  • Echo with Alexa — The Alexa-friendly devices are on sale today, so it’s worth checking in on the discounts

So Silly But I Can’t Help Sharing

Here’s a link to those worms I was talking about.

And a compost bin if you want to vermicompost this school year.
