After many years in the classroom, I have been able to justify buying a few luxury classroom supplies. Many times I made money for my classroom working our carnival booth. I wanted to buy something that justified a full day of teaching with carnival excited kids In addition to the 4 hours I put in at the carnival on a Friday night selling popcorn and cleaning the popcorn machine. Seriously, what office job makes you work all day and then spend your Friday night working to buy supplies. Only a teacher would do that!
Okay, I am the teacher who feels that 5th graders should staple their own papers! To my demise, and through a lot of work trying to fix jammed staplers and sometimes throwing them away, I found that 5th graders had to be taught how to staple. They didn’t have enough strength to push down on the stapler the first time, and then they would press harder the second time and jam the stapler! I went through so many staplers over the years and would constantly take them home to fix them. This all changed when I bought an electric stapler. I have only had one jam, with this stapler and it was easy to fix.
This stapler can handle up to 25 sheets of paper. I really like this stapler because you can adjust the depth of the staple. If we are doing flip books I can easily adjust it so the staple doesn’t cover information that needs to be viewed. The best thing about this stapler is no more jams!
It is time teachers to stop buying those cheap plastic stapler removers that bend out of shape and fling staples all over the place when you are tearing apart your bulletin boards. It is time to buy the ultimate heavy duty stapler remover. No more achy hands, this is ergonomic and uses leverage to get those difficult staples out. This one is going to last for years! All the teachers come over to borrow mine.
I originally bought this to pick up pins from my sewing room. It eventually made its way to my classroom. After I am done removing staples or doing a science project using paper clips I break out the telescoping magnet wand. The students actually fight over this job. No more asking the kids to find staples in the carpet.
Heavy Duty Hole Punch
I can’t tell you how many times I had copies I made and forgot to hole punch them, or didn’t have time in the teacher workroom. It is so nice to quickly hole punch a classroom set of copies in one punch. This one is a true luxury that is also easy for the students to use.
