This teacher made learning HIP!

Teacher and Hip2Save reader, Sarah, brought the creativity and excitement to her classroom by making learning fun for her students. She definitely deserves the teacher-of-the-year award!

I love being creative in my classroom. Recently, for my birthday I received black lights from Amazon (which I’d been wanting for a while). When you guys posted about the deal on the Glow in the Dark Connect 4 games, I went and bought a couple for my classroom. This past weekend, I set up my room for a Glow In The Dark day.

We did a ton of math activities in the dark (plus a brain break one with the Connect 4). I cut out my own decorations and strung them from the ceiling and all around the room. I had received a ton of extra neon paper from the previous teacher. It was perfect and saved a TON. I also picked up some cute neon items from the Dollar Tree.

    Our first grade team at my school has a bat cave day where they decorate their doors like the entry to a cave and let the kids work with glow bracelet, necklaces, use glue flashlights while working…so fun! I like the idea of the glow board game!

    This is my daughter’s teacher!!! She is AMAZING! And her prize box is epic because she’s a deal hunter. 💚 I’m so thankful for her and teachers like her who give so much to our kids, here and there alike!
