Tiger; School Supplies

I went into town yesterday and popped into Tiger for a look. They always have so many bits and pieces that could be used in lots of ways in your classroom. I took photos of some of the main products that I liked. Below you’ll see some pictures of the products along with a description of how I would use them.

Tape; this can be used for a wide variety of things in the classroom. The rainbow tape would be perfect to wrap around materials that you own e.g. pencils/pens etc.

Either tape could be used to make frames as seen below.

You can never have enough pencils! Theres lots of options. I always keep a set of pencils in case children forget to bring one in/don’t have one. They know where to get the pencils if they need one.

A nice selection of picnic blankets. These would be good in a classroom library area to add some colour to the classroom. Throw in a few cushions and you can make a perfect reading area!

I loved these place name cards. I know they are meant for weddings but thought these could be reused during the year when moving places!

Overall Tiger is one of my favourite places to shop for school materials!
