Trainers Warehouse: Product Reviews & Giveaways

As with most teachers, I love using the summer to shop for all of the unique and "teachery" items I can use in my classroom during the upcoming year. From stores, to catalogs, to websites, I always seem to have teaching on my mind and can't wait to see what new and exciting item I can bring to my next group of students.

Imagine my delight when I was approached my Trainers Warehouse to review some products and share a giveaway with you!? I was immediately drawn into their resources that I will highlight below, and be sure to enter the giveaway at the end for your chance to win one of two $25 gift certificates to their site!


Trainers Warehouse may sound like it's geared more for adults, but I was blown away by how many classroom-friendly resources they have. The first product that caught my eye was the Thumball, and I am not sure I need to explain how many hundreds of uses there will be for this in the classroom: from back-to-school icebreakers, to Morning Meeting, to greeting new incoming students, to buddies, and more, this is a great and durable little tool (it's 6" across and plush) that's built to last. There are several versions of Thumballs available, so be sure to read more about them HERE to see which one will suit your classroom's needs best.


I am an advocate for kids using hand fidgets if and when they need them. I posted about a few easy-to-find fidgets on my blog HERE and was impressed by Trainers Warehouse's selection, all priced under $6. They sent me three and each of them was a new design we don't already have in our Fidget Bin. I also found they were not loud or distracting, especially the SwingOs, which was my favorite. Check out all of their fidget designs HERE.


Last, I am *obsessed* with their handheld white boards! The neon colors are so fun and are perfect for group responses, but the quality is what I love the most. These are solid plastic, with a smooth, glossy finish that makes writing on them easy and wiping them off a breeze. You can use either side and they also come in plain white. I look forward to replacing my old Dollar Spot version in my Teacher Time Bin with these snazzy guys!

Be sure to check out all of Trainers Warehouse's wide selection on their website or on Amazon.

And be sure to enter the giveaway below! I will be emailing two winners a $25 gift certificate to Trainers Warehouse to start your new school year off with some fun finds of your choice! Winners will be selected on July 19, so enter soon!
