Stickers have always been used for positive reinforcement and now come in what seems to be an infinite amount of designs, from sparkly to sporty, minuscule to enormous. You begin to collect sheets and sheets of ‘great work’ and ‘nice effort’ in order to keep the students in line in the classroom.

“I haven’t brought my pen” may possibly be the most used sentence in a classroom and you would have thought by now the repetitive telling off and reminder to bring one the next day would suffice. Alas, they have forgotten their pen again and your stash of neatly labelled pens is becoming scarce. Time to stock up for the third time this month.

Why not stock up the easy way and order your classroom accessories online for this semester? Teacherboards offers all your classroom essentials, from pens to pins, at great prices.
