Staples still has great weekly deals on school supplies if you pay attention to their ads.
Here is the breakdown of my haul at Staples this week:
12 packages of Pencil Cap Erasers*
25 packages of index cards*
2 packages of Die Cut Post Its
4 packages of Neon Flag Stickies
4 packages of Sharpie 4ct Highlighters

Retail Value: $62.48

The rewards will be issued at the end of the month for use in August at Staples. I'm still learning about the Staples Rewards program as I have not used it in the past.
I used the index cards all the time last year. The index cards played a huge role in my Guided Reading groups and small group teaching. We made index cards for sight words, building sentences, etc.
