The idea for SproutClassrooms.com came about while helping a fellow teacher clear out old materials from her classroom. During the purge, we found a collection of Magic School Bus units on water conservation. But neither of us had the subject in our curriculum for the year. The principal wanted everything gone, and we practically sobbed as we saw them go into the dumpster. What a waste! Couldn't SOMEONE use these amazing resources?
These days, too many perfectly good resources end up in our basements and landfills rather than in the hands of students. Sprout Classrooms has been created to help.
We purchase quality used classroom resources from retiring teachers, teachers who are changing grades, and teachers who are cleaning out their classrooms. We also accept donations from local schools who are doing spring cleaning or consolidating school buildings. We then put these wonderful resources on our website and allow teachers like you the thrill of finding the items you've dreamed about - for much, much less than purchasing new. Our items average 50-90% less than you would pay if purchasing from a teacher store or catalog!
At Sprout, we understand teachers because we ARE teachers. We track down the items you want and stay on top of the trends.
We understand that many teachers spend their own money on classroom materials, so we price our items as low as possible.
We work with schools and teacher to make sure we're part of the budget solution, helping our educational dollars work harder and smarter.
The founders of Sprout work tirelessly to bring you the items you've earmarked in those catalogs but thought you could never afford. So spend some time browsing our selection and come back often. We promise you won't be disappointed!
