The large office supply stores (Staples, Office Max, etc.) often have a section with basic classroom supplies. Teacher-parent stores usually have a bigger selection, but require a bit of a drive (some may offer online or telephone ordering). Some of these in Connecticut are:
- Lakeshore Learning (Hamden) - http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/
- Chalkboard (West Hartford) - http://www.chalkboardct.com/
- Education Works (Orange, Danbury, Waterford) - http://www.educationworks.com/
- Educational Innovations (Bethel) - http://www.teachersource.com/
In addition to the popular book clubs and book fairs, Scholastic Publishing also sells a variety of classroom supplies. Their warehouse in Danbury is open to educators several times a year for special sales.
Another easy and fast source for many classroom supplies is Amazon (http://www.amazon.com).
Ask the teachers with whom you're working about their favorite teacher supply store.
