These Products Are Teachers’ Choice Award Winners—And You Could Win Them All (Including a Classroom Projector)!

I have a special treat for you. Starting today and over the next several months, I’ll be giving away classroom products that are winners of Learning magazine’s 2016 Teachers’ Choice Awards! These are the very best in classroom-tested, teacher-recommended products. How do I know? Our nationwide panel of teacher-judges tested and evaluated them in their classrooms. The teacher-judges are real preschool through grade 8 teachers using the products with real students and providing real feedback. (And that makes me real excited!) The Teachers’ Choice Award designation is given to the best of the best.


Here’s what you need to do: post a comment to this blog by 11:59 pm EST on November 22, 2015, to tell me which of the award-winning products below would be perfect in your classroom. From the comments, I’ll randomly select one teacher to win all the products in today’s post—a value of over $650! That’s a lot to win! Congratulations to Michelle. She’s the winner of these products!


And the winning-products for today are…

Epson PowerLite 99WH: Let there be light! That’s right—you could win this bright and user-friendly classroom projector. It comes with advanced connectivity and premium audio, and is perfect for any classroom. (TCA for the Classroom)


Write This Way: How Modeling Transforms the Writing Classroom from Capstone: As students watch an adult writer think, talk, and write, they develop the skills to create polished, purposeful writing. This book shows you how to put modeling to work in your grades K–5 classroom. (TCA for Professional Development)


TREND enterprises Dinosaur Mighty Match Challenge Cards: The action-packed games on these cards build reading and vocabulary skills as players ages 3 and up match picture to picture or picture to fun fact. (TCA for the Family)

Teacher’s Guides offer explicit support and include tips for English learners. (TCA for Preschool)


Discovery Education Techbook app: This app is a winner and a freebie! It lets students in grades K–12 download Science Techbook and Social Studies Techbook content when Internet access is available so, when they’re offline, they can still access that content on their iPads. (TCA for the Classroom)

  1. I like the I can stay calm books. Children are under so much pressure these days that we can all learn how to stay calm. Susan

  2. Oh my, I want them all. The projector could be used to help with training events for the 18 classrooms that I coach/mentor. The tech stuff would be wonderful additions to any classrooms. I am especially interested in the Social Emotional Learning Foundations. Serving at-risk children means, at least to me, that many of them have seen and experienced difficult and frightening things. I would love to build a workshop around this material for the teachers so we could all better support the children we teach and the families we serve.

  3. The prizes are all great! I would love to win the Epson Powerlite 99WH. I’m the library media specialist and this would add so much to my lessons!

    a great way to light up my room as I model lessons for teachers and students alike.

    But of course as a teacher anything that we win is always appreciated and valued.

  9. The classroom projector! We only have a couple to share in our whole school and this would be wonderful for short clips and power point presentations!

  10. Discovery Education Techbook app is my favorite this month the others are fine but the app looks great. I think I am asking Santa for an Ipad to use in my classroom. I teach Gifted and Talented grades K thru for and know my students will love this app. I wonder if the app works for chrome books.

    As usual I am going to be the teacher in the know thanks to Karen and her blog.
