You can make them out of crates and cushions if you’re crafty.

I go to the ReStore a lot for unique chairs and lamps.

What kind specifically

Some businesses advertise surplus sales when they move or remodel. Check online

Try facebook marketplace...Letgo...Offerup..and Nextdoor (if you're a member). I Lime the idea of using the crates because that's storage.... and free when you get them from the school...or can talk to your neighborhood grocery store.

Also look at JoAnn and Michaels - they have all sorts of back to school/college dorm stuff, and I used to by stools and chairs at 60-75% off that were really cute for the classroom!

Garage sale and Facebook marketplace. I once bought 20 junky chairs for $20 bucks and reupholstered about 10 of them for my classroom. It’s a lot easier than you might think! :) Good luck!

Hello Everyone, I’m was trying to help some of our secondary RSP teachers determine what they can do with their student’s during LAB/ Study Skills Class. Some of my ideas included: Work on incomplete classwork or homework, work on goals, study for test and quizzes, work on projects, goal setting for the next semester, organize google classroom assignments or practice for the state exams. If they are other ideas I would love to hear them! Thanks everyone

I took advantage of Verizon’s Black Friday deals and got myself the new iPhone yesterday. I’m AMAZED by all the neat things it can do. One of my favorites is that you can grab text from a picture and have it read aloud. This would be so helpful for my students with vision needs and those with reading disabilities. When do we think we’ll actually see this technology in the classroom? Can’t very well put “iPhone” on a students assistive tech section of their IEP 😂

Amex corporate green card or CSR? I’m not seeing many benefits to the Amex and I’m wondering whether I should just stop paying the annual fee and apply for CSR instead and get reimbursed for business expenses from that card. Considering I can only put business reimbursable expenses on the Amex, it’s not accumulating points very fast. Would I be better off consolidating my points on CSR? Amex platinum doesn’t seem like the right move for me right now.
