Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week with These Deals & a TpT Sale!

This year, Teacher Appreciation Week is being celebrated while most teachers in the U.S. and many throughout the world are teaching students remotely.  I've heard the word unprecedented so often it almost seems trite to say it but it truly is the best way to describe the world we now live in. 

(Updated Monday, May 4, 2020)

 Many of the chain restaurants that used to offer deals during this week may still be doing that but they aren't advertising it on their websites.  It's totally understandable and, personally, I'd rather recommend that you support your local eating establishments.  For the past few weeks, every Saturday or Sunday I've been ordering take-out from restaurants near me to help them out a tiny bit.

I am pleased to let you know that TeachersPayTeachers is having a sale on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 5th and 6th, 2020.  For the past several years, TpT has had a sitewide sale during Teacher Appreciation Week and this year it is again.  In fact, many of the teacher-authors, including me, have been converting existing resources and creating new ones to try and help teachers out in this new normal.  As usual, all the resources in my store will be 20% off.  Please use the promo code ThankYou20 for an additional 5% off at checkout, which means you can purchase all my resources at a 25% savings.  Other TpT stores will also be on sale for up to 25% off, depending on the store.

For flyers, certificates, and social media images to promote Teacher Appreciation Week, check out the National PTA materials on their website.  They've added materials that are appropriate for distance learning contexts.  They also link to OfficeDepot/Office Max, their sponsor, for deals at their stores on select items good through May 9th.

As you'd expect, there are fewer deals and discounts available this year since so many businesses are experiencing steep losses of income.  The places listed below are ones I found that are offering special deals this May.  Many other businesses offer discounts to educators throughout the year but I did not include them in this round up.  Just click on the green links to go to their websites for more information.  (I looked at all the websites to verify the info and it was accurate at the time I wrote this blog post.)
