It’s still very much up in the air for my district but what I do know is that Scarlet (and eventually Des) needs a place of her own for schoolwork! We first started staying home on March 13th. What we didn’t know then but know now, is that the next school year will still be affected by events of early 2020. That said, there WILL be a school year. So whether it’s fully normal, fully remote, or a hybrid model, Scarlet is starting 6th grade and news a new space of her own! We got her a simple desk last week, and have since filled it and decorated it with some of Staples’ best! We have always had an annual tradition of doing our school supply shopping and bonding with Staples, and 2020 is no exception. Presenting some of the best home schooling supplies!
Setting Up a Homeschooling Area For My Daughter:
Scarlet uses a laptop but it has a really small screen. She learned through her grandmother that she could hook up her computer with a much better monitor and keyboard/mouse combo too!
This is the same one I use so of course I’m a fan. I like it for her because the contoured mouse fits around the curve of her hand to reduce fatigue from gripping, and the noise-reducing keyboard helps create a quiet environment. Plus there’s wireless connectivity for customization.
Pep Rally Products!
These are cool! Stars and stripes and bursts of color. We are huge fans of this line of products – which are exclusive to Staples – and brighten any desk or office! Check out what we love:
Pep Rally Pack of 8 Assorted Pencils:
We love these! This is an 8 pack of assorted patterned pencils and it’s also available in assorted glitter colors.
Pep Rally Shine All Day Binder + Folders:
The binder is awesome and cheerful, and I love the 2-pocket folders!
Pep Rally Star Slider Pencil Case:
LOVE! This pencil case rocks, because it’s durable and easy to access!
Pep Rally Erasers:
These are so great, for Scarlet to radiate positivity this fall wherever she may go, by sharing uplifting messages on her erasers! Plus, they match her binder, folders, pencil case, and calculator.
Pep Rally Rainbow Calculator:
Can you fall in love with a calculator? I think I did! It’s a necessity for Scarlet, so why not make it beautiful?
Pep Rally Three Ring Rainbow Pencil Pouch:
Love this too! It goes right into her Shine All Day binder, right in front of her Pep Rally folders!
Poppin Blush Tape Dispenser:
You can definitely fall in love with a tape dispenser because this one is amazing.
Poppin Blush Softie This That Tray + Staples Tacks:
This is a delightful and colorful, flexible silicone tray meant for stacking and sorting. And the tacks are kept in there – she uses them to secure calendars, reminders or memos to walls or boards.
Poppin 1″ Multi-Color Removable Notes:
This memo ball has 12 sticky sides, each featuring tear-off sticky memos in different colors. So cool!
And those are some of our favorite things! We also got a Marble Composition Notebook, Crayola Construction Paper, Twistables Crayola Crayons, Post-it Super Sticky Easel Pads, TRU RED Tank Permanent Markers, a Poppin White Clipboard, and a Quartet Classic Cork Bulletin Board with Aluminum Frame. We love Staples for their broad assortment of top-quality products and services we need, plus the best savings, to return to school, learn from home, or both!
