I'm back today with two more hot deals from Groupon that will help you build your classroom library on a budget! First, we have a one-year subscription to either Ranger Rick or Ranger Rick Jr. magazine for only $10 each! Our school library had a subscription to each of these magazines, and my students would pour over them during free reading time when we visited each week. Published by the National Wildlife Federation, each issue is jam-packed with photos, animal facts, trivia, games, and more. Copies of this magazine are sure to be a classroom favorite!
As I mentioned in our back-to-school roundup of ideas for building your classroom library on a budget, magazines make a colorful and exciting addition to look forward to monthly, and the cost of these subscriptions is a steal!
Ranger Rick magazine also offers a handy and FREE educator's guide for each monthly issue to help you match the contents of each month's issue with your classroom standards. The clock is ticking fast on this offer, so don't miss out!
Another great Groupon deal is for a one-year digital subscription, one-year print subscription, or two-year print subscription to Zoobooks, Zootles, or Zoobies magazine from Zoobooks! These magazines are appropriate for primary (Zootles and Zoobies) and elementary classrooms (Zoobooks), as well as low-level readers in middle level grades. I had a Zoobooks subscription for two years, and my third graders absolutely LOVED it. There was always a queue of students waiting to borrow the newest issue when it came in!
If you have never used Groupon, be sure to sign up to receive their daily deals in your inbox (including great ways to treat yourself for self-care Sunday!). First-time subscribers can save 25% on their first Groupon deal by using the code FIRST at checkout! You can also receive an additional 6% cash back through Ebates if you are are member.
Don't delay — this is a limited time offer as well. Snag a subscription for your classroom before they're gone!
