Idea 30: Don't Forget About Academics

The holidays are filled with toys, and presents and gift cards. At First Place, we love them all. Every family gets a wonderful holiday, classrooms are adopted, the birthday box fills up, our library gets new books, students get new toys and we all enjoy a holiday party together.

The rest of the year, we know what the teachers really want and it’s about the academics.

Sometimes the things teachers need can not be found at Toys"R"Us or Target. Our teachers need learning games, teacher manuals, text books, science kits for experiments, learning posters and bulletin board accents.

There are two local store which are perfect resources for all of these items:

Math’n’Stuff on Roosevelt in Seattle.

Lakeshore Learning in Bellevue and online.

Next time you are considering giving to First Place, consider a gift card to one of these stores.
