Enter to win a memory builder discovery box from Discount School Supply

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on November 12, 2012

in Give-Aways, Memory Builder Discovery Box

This is a beautiful box that we haven’t even begun to tap into all the potential uses in our classroom but I don’t want to delay this post any longer….

The memory builder discovery box from Discount School Supply is a wooden box with 16 compartments with 16 wooden lids that sit on top of each compartment…

You can place anything you want inside each compartment and then invite the children to explore the compartments, play a memory game, sort objects, or use the discovery box simply as a way to invite the children to collect and explore items they are interested in…

We found that a good place to start was to just give the children a chance to put items in and out of the compartments.  This served as a wonderful way to work those fine motor skills…

After using the box for a few days, we introduced the memory game concept to the children.  Some of our students preferred playing the memory game on their own rather than with a partner…

And some of our students enjoyed playing the memory game with a friend but without too many rules – just working together to find the matching objects…

The memory builder discovery box provides a fascinating way to present and explore small objects.  You can really set out almost any small object with the memory box or invite your students to choose what they would like to explore with the memory box…

From natural objects like rocks, acorns, seeds, and pinecones to other items around the classroom like buttons, pompoms, cars, and other small objects – the list of objects to explore or play games with is wonderfully broad and truly endless…

I look forward to finding more ways my students can use this box and I am willing to bet you all will even come up with even more ideas I never even thought of!

I would love a light table for my son to play on. We have a small portable light panel but would love a table to do lots more things on.

2 Jill November 12, 2012 at 10:27 am

I would love to have some Colorations Liquid Water Colors. I have never used them in the classroom, but they are definitely on my wish list! So many uses for them!

3 Amanda November 13, 2012 at 5:27 pm

We use these all the time and now that I have I never want to be out of them! Watch for a sale and give them a try if you find them at the right time you can normally get them really cheap.

4 Michelle Willis November 12, 2012 at 10:34 am

Would love the super shape stencils!

5 Aja Kunda November 12, 2012 at 10:36 am

I’d like to learn more about the high scope. Going to start homeschooling soon and am looking at my options.

6 Misty November 12, 2012 at 10:40 am

I would adore trying out the tactile discovery box, along with this memory builder box!

7 Tiffany November 12, 2012 at 10:40 am

I love discount school supply! I would like to learn more about their “collections” of toys, their light boxes and accessories, and these mystery boxes sure seem like fun!

8 Karissa November 12, 2012 at 10:41 am

I’d like to try the Colorations paint additives sometime. I’ve also been wanting to give the Colorations foam paint a shot.

9 Cindy November 12, 2012 at 10:59 am

I teach in a special needs preschool and my class would really benefit from the Pre-Writing Motor Skills Set. Will keep in mind for next years orders.

10 Shannon November 12, 2012 at 11:06 am

I would love to have the parachute play kit. I remember using this in elem school. The possibilities are endless!!!

11 Cathy Meekins November 12, 2012 at 11:06 am

The memory builder discovery box looks amazing! I would love to have the sensory walk in my back yard! We’re moving soon so I’ll have a clean slate to work with for my outdoor play area. While a bit overwhelming, it’s also very exciting! :)

12 Ashley November 12, 2012 at 11:11 am


I am interested in the adio/visual timers as a means of teaching my 4.5 year old more about time.

13 Melissa November 12, 2012 at 11:12 am

I would like to add the beginner pattern blocks to our manipulatives area. :)

14 Morgan N November 12, 2012 at 11:13 am

I love the magnatiles, they look like a great item especially with a light table!

15 Vicky November 12, 2012 at 11:15 am

I’m interested in the Market Activity Loft. I sooooo want a loft in my PreK classroom. I see an infinite list of uses my kiddos would have for this between dramatic play, small group work, and a quiet thinking spot for kiddos. Thanks for asking!

16 Mar November 12, 2012 at 11:15 am

I would love a light table,also I would love to try out the tactile discovery box.

19 Jessica A. November 12, 2012 at 11:23 am

I would like to learn more about their active play toys!

20 Marilyn S November 12, 2012 at 11:25 am

That’s an easy one! I’d love a lifetime supply of Biocolor from Discount School Supply!!! The colors are amazing! Love the liquid watercolors, too! And the glue in little jars….I could go on and on!


21 Mandi November 12, 2012 at 11:36 am

I love the colorations water colors. They are vibrant and don’t stain and are just wonderful. I also love the children around the world and the refillable blocks.

22 Katherine November 12, 2012 at 11:48 am

I would love to have the table top light box. There are so many possibilities for active learning with it!

23 Amber November 12, 2012 at 11:54 am

24 tahoegrandma November 12, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I like the magnetic dry erase lap boards

25 Anne Walsh November 12, 2012 at 12:21 pm

I LOVE many of the products they are selling…but I can’t get the mirror observation station and alphabet building set out of my mind!

26 Sarah F November 12, 2012 at 12:24 pm

I would love to have more magnatiles, a listening center, and some felt boards. I’m not picky!

27 Nancy Kennerly November 12, 2012 at 12:47 pm

I have never seen the Memory Box and think it is so cool! Endless creativity with the kids! Would love to have one in the classroom!

28 Vanessa November 12, 2012 at 1:05 pm

I love the little laundry center. I touch on fabric and textiles in January. It would be tons of fun.

29 Cathy November 12, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Their paint and watercolors are awesome! Love to use them!

30 Robiana November 12, 2012 at 1:15 pm

I really need the paint brush squeezey bottles… my kids are a mess

31 Tiana November 12, 2012 at 1:21 pm

The pre-writing motor skill set and the shape sorter looks very interesting. I really like the light table.

32 Pat Lothian November 12, 2012 at 1:29 pm

On the top of my wish list is a light table for my classroom…so many possibilities for exploration.

33 jennifer November 12, 2012 at 1:38 pm

The foam paint looks interesting. Probably like our shaving cream paint we make at home. Would love to try that. : )

34 Janet T. November 12, 2012 at 1:42 pm

I’m always looking for another engaging floor toy, so my interest is in the Giant Mystery Ball Maze.

35 Pamela Spann November 12, 2012 at 1:47 pm

I would like the Brawny Tough Career Vests – Set of 8 for my dramatic play center.

36 Kim Jans November 12, 2012 at 1:52 pm

I run a home daycare and am always looking for more natural, updated items to add to my space. I love the Sunny Day Learn and Play carpet, along with the Deluxe primary kitchen. I have a small light tracer table that I use for a light table which is used every day. it would be wonderful to have a full-sized one. thank you :)

37 Gayle Hein November 12, 2012 at 2:12 pm

I like the rainbow rollers. How fun for grandchildren.

38 Lynne Sellers November 12, 2012 at 2:21 pm

I think the maths products on the Discount School Supply website all look very helpful. At present my group of toddlers, here in England, adore the story about The Gingerbread Man. I have bought puppets to keep my fidgety children more interested and have made gingerbread men biscuits as a follow up activity, but the Gingerbread sort and snap products on the website would be a wonderful addition and help with basic mathematics, as well as a follow up from their favourite story right now. x

39 Jami November 12, 2012 at 2:43 pm

What a neat tool to extend the memory game! Wonder if the memory cards will actually fit? My students play memory with everything…

40 carmen November 12, 2012 at 2:56 pm

i’d also love to learn more about the 3/4 mosiac pegboard! my littles would love those!

41 JJ November 12, 2012 at 3:14 pm

There is so much at this site, how do I choose! I love the pattern blocks, I think my little guy would be really into them. The discovery box you’re giving away is so cool too. Our nature items would probably go in it first.

42 Cathy November 12, 2012 at 3:20 pm

An open-ended activity box with lids! just perfect for sorting, classifying, hiding, discovering… I love Discount School Supply’s flannel imagination station puppet theater!

43 Katrina November 12, 2012 at 3:20 pm

I really would love the infant mirror with the rail! It would be a great addition to our soon to be Montessori infant area.

44 Nichole Halliday November 12, 2012 at 3:23 pm

I would love one of these boxes. I’d just pinned it yesterday as a possible Christmas gift :)
A light table would allow for so much exploration so I would choose that as my other choice

45 Amanda @ Dirt and Boogers November 12, 2012 at 3:27 pm

I love Discount School Supply. I already have a ton of things from there on my son’s Christmas list. I hope that he gets the marble run! I think he would have so much fun with it. I also want some Colorations Liquid Water Colors.

46 Verica Karic November 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Going to start homeschooling soon and would like to have Foam Sheet Super Pack.

47 Caitie November 12, 2012 at 4:08 pm

I would love a light table in my classroom and the Magna-Tiles to go with!

48 Kathleen Pecic November 12, 2012 at 4:19 pm

Our school just bought four of their wall cubbies. Great products at great prices!

49 Dana November 12, 2012 at 4:24 pm

I thought the Pre-Writing Motor Skills Set was pretty neat. I’d be interested in learning more about that.
Thanks for the chance to win.
Dana =)

50 Linda November 12, 2012 at 5:06 pm

I would love to have the table top light box–my prek would love it!

51 DeShunta Ross November 12, 2012 at 5:07 pm

In the pre-k classroom, it is hard to get the children talking about social studes topics enough to ge observationa notes for their portfolios in my area.Many of the teachers do no have tingsin the classroom that would support the social studies domain that we assess the children on. At he Discount School Supply site, the multicultural family puzzles, community puzzles, and inclusion puzzles would be great ways to get the children to seend begin talking about topics relating to social studies. Also, I liked the Beng a Good Citizen book set would be awesome to add to our library center!

52 Melissa November 12, 2012 at 5:12 pm

So many things I’d love from their store! Magnatiles are top of my list right now.

53 Amy Isham November 12, 2012 at 5:15 pm

This would be awesome for my new preK classroom in the spring!!!

54 liz aull November 12, 2012 at 5:26 pm

I would love some of the Colorations IncredibleFoam Dough for my classroom! We never tire of using play doh and Moon Sand.

55 Erin November 12, 2012 at 5:51 pm

I love the Hands Around the World carpet. Engaging children in discussions around multicultural issues is becoming increasingly important in this cosmopolitan world!

56 Erin November 12, 2012 at 5:54 pm

I love the hands around the world carpet. Discussing multicultural issues with children is becoming increasingly important in this Cosmopolitan world!

57 Helene November 12, 2012 at 6:22 pm

I’d love to have the HighScope science and math kits for our Early Childhood Dept.!

58 maryanne @ mama smiles November 12, 2012 at 7:10 pm

What a cool idea! I’ve never seen one of these, but I think I want to get one for my family!

I also think this color sort vegetable set is very cool:


59 Sarah northen November 12, 2012 at 8:39 pm

I love the chunky puzzles. Great for little hands!

60 Diane Miesner November 12, 2012 at 8:41 pm

I would love a set of Magna Tiles. I’ve made a light table and the children would love to use these on it.

61 Bette Vaughan November 12, 2012 at 8:49 pm

My children love the magna-tiles. Could always use more.

62 Cathie November 12, 2012 at 9:17 pm

I would love more Colorations Liquid Water Colors. I have some and they are so wonderful. SO many uses and the colors are so vibrant.

Hope I win!
Cathie @ toddlersthroughpreschool.com

Thanks Discount School Supply!

63 Jan November 12, 2012 at 9:37 pm

The memory builder box – what a different approach. I think being able to use objects instead of the memory cards would make it much more interactive. What a help for tactile, and visual learners. This would be a great addition to my pre-k classroom.

64 Vidya November 12, 2012 at 10:00 pm

I would love to try the Pegs and Patterns for my son. Looks like great fun with hands on learning!

65 Nancy Brunner November 12, 2012 at 10:04 pm

I would love to receive a light box someday :)

66 Beth November 12, 2012 at 10:05 pm

I have the “best ever family dollhouse” in my classroom and the children LOVE it! I’d love some more of the items in the dramatic play section like play toaster!

67 Stacey November 12, 2012 at 10:07 pm

Discount School Supply is our main source for preschool toys and supplies. I’m hoping to get a light table soon.

68 Jenny L November 12, 2012 at 11:46 pm

The light table is on my wish list. I would love to learn more about this product and share all the possibilities with my children.

I would want the really big, bright buttons for sorting and lacing and playing with play dough. So many fun ways to use them!

76 Michele Covelli November 13, 2012 at 7:21 am

I think my students would like to play a connect four type of game with the memory box.

77 Katie November 13, 2012 at 7:30 am

I love the Memory Builder Discovery Box! While I’d love it at home, I’d donate it to my daughter’s pre-school classroom. What a wonderful, exploratory toy! Keepin my fingers crossed!

78 Susie November 13, 2012 at 7:31 am

Discount School Supply has so many products it’s hard to choose. I love the Nest and Stack Color Blocks for the block play value as well as for color-mixing and exploring hues of color. They would be great paired with little people. Thanks for the wonderful offer!!

79 Pennie November 13, 2012 at 7:32 am

I would love to get this Tabletop Light Box. I had tried getting a grant for it plus some of the light table accessories but no such luck.

80 Robin November 13, 2012 at 7:32 am

I would love at least 1 set of the foam shape blocks. Can’t ever have enough blocks around my childcare/ preschool.

Thank you

81 Janice Erkfitz November 13, 2012 at 7:33 am

I think the jumping around the class kit would be great for my classroom. It gives lots of differetnt active play materials to use.

82 margaret November 13, 2012 at 7:34 am

The Magna tiles look like fun for building and learning about shapes.

83 Emily Pryer November 13, 2012 at 7:35 am

86 Pam November 13, 2012 at 7:38 am

I absolutely love their bio color paints. I would love to have a light table in my daycare

87 Melinda November 13, 2012 at 7:54 am

We added a light table this year to the preschool and pre-k rooms; best purchase in a long, long time! There seems to be no end to the curricular additions because of this!

88 Amanda November 13, 2012 at 5:26 pm

I just answered this and completely forgot about a light table! That has been one of my top wish lists items for a while now, I think I may have to try and make my own because our school just doesn’t have the extra money for one right now, I would love to see one offered on here!

89 Georgia November 13, 2012 at 7:39 am

Interested in the light table for sensory and science and fun of exploration

90 Lori November 13, 2012 at 7:50 am

I would love to have the Colorations Dough in my class, the kids would love it!


91 Amy November 13, 2012 at 7:52 am

I would jump at the chance for a light box. I have loved reading your (and other) blog about using the light table. I cant wait to see what other uses for the memory discovery box your students come up with

92 Melinda November 13, 2012 at 7:52 am

I’m always looking for ways to increase the children’s cultural awareness and I see that DST has a new set – African Bolga Basket and instruments. I’d love to add that to my classroom!

93 amy November 13, 2012 at 7:57 am

I would love the “children around the world” blocks.

94 Michelle Almengor November 13, 2012 at 8:11 am

95 Diane Jones November 13, 2012 at 8:17 am

I am in desperate need for new chairs! The Angeles line of chairs looks great,my current chairs are old and very heavy. This Discovery Box also looks wonderful with so many play possibilities. Thanks for the chance to win!

96 Michelle November 13, 2012 at 8:39 am

What an amazing website! I’m going to buy a water/sand table before summer, and they have so many to choose from. Thank you for showing me this site. BTW, I’m a new subscriber, and I really love what you do. Kudos!

97 Kristen Freeman November 13, 2012 at 8:44 am

I would love to have a make-a-meal healthy set in the dramatic play area. This set looks amazing since it has food you generally see in our families homes mixed with an assortment of fruits and vegetables. We are constantly doing nutrition lessons here in our class and this would be a great addition to our kitchen pretend and play area.

98 Brandi Montgomery November 13, 2012 at 8:46 am

I would love to be able to purchase a marble run game or some more magna tiles for my students to use. They are so intrigued with magnets.

99 Irene November 13, 2012 at 9:06 am

Magna-Tiles are a huge favorite among our preschoolers. They truly support so much creativity each day.

100 Amanda K November 13, 2012 at 9:03 am

We haven’t tried the Colorations Liquid Watercolor yet – but I think we need to. We get most of our art supplies from Discount; their prices are great and they have a good variety.

101 Irene November 13, 2012 at 9:04 am

The memory builder box would work great for items with texture or similar items in different sizes for comparison skills. It would also be great for counting objects in one box to match with the number in another. Another idea would be to place clues in the boxes starting in the upper left corner to make up a scavenger hunt type of game.

102 Nora Robles November 13, 2012 at 9:09 am

I will love the Window Blocks for my day care. It will be a nice B-day present for my monday B-day!

103 Erika November 13, 2012 at 9:20 am

I am intrigued by the Smartmax magnetic sets. I think they are super cool and the kids would love them in my daycare…

104 Carol Hurd November 13, 2012 at 9:30 am

I have always been interested in Light Tables and all of the fun goodies that go along with them!

105 Chris M November 13, 2012 at 9:32 am

I love the felt story sets. I like to use hands on objects to help tell and retell stories. Since I also teach in German it also is easy to use felt pieces to tell the story that they are familar with in English

106 Deborah B November 13, 2012 at 9:39 am

I would love to have the tabletop puppet theater for my Media Center with all the puppets :) It would be great to tell stories to my Preschool Children!

107 Margaret Hogan November 13, 2012 at 9:42 am

I would love to win the discovery box. My granddaughter loves to play memory games on my iPad with me, and this box would make the games different every time! I love all of your ideas and use them with her!

108 Miss Karen November 13, 2012 at 9:49 am

OMGoodness, I just love the pre-writing motor skills set too. Thanks to Cindy who posted about it. It would be perfect for some of my kiddos too.

109 Laurie E November 13, 2012 at 10:18 am

Would love to win the Memory Builder Discovery Box so that my grandkids would have something special to play with at Nana’s house that they don’t have at home! Also, I discovered the 3-D Spindle Puzzles at the Discount School Supply website that I’m definitely going to order…looks like fun to me!

110 Debbie C November 13, 2012 at 10:19 am

We’d love the puppet theater to put on shows (and the puppets too)!

111 Susie November 13, 2012 at 10:20 am

This discovery box looks awesome! I want to make or find the story boxes you showed one day.

114 ellie Crompton November 13, 2012 at 10:40 am

I would definitely like the phonic flippers! They look like they would be very helpful.

115 Marion Getchel November 13, 2012 at 10:42 am

I would love to get Magnetic Dressing Dolls. It looks like the children would have a great time with them and more preschool friendly than paper dolls.

116 Dee Swan Go November 13, 2012 at 10:42 am

Thanks for always all your usable posts which I used and shared with fellow Pre-K teachers.

117 Ali Robo November 13, 2012 at 10:51 am

First off, I’m so glad I found this on pinterest! My school is a non profit organization, so we don’t have a lot of money for items! I’m so excited to see discounted school supplies! Can you please provide your insight on the best sand and water table for preschoolers? Thanks again!

118 Krista November 13, 2012 at 10:52 am

119 Mary B November 13, 2012 at 12:01 pm

120 Christi Shaw November 13, 2012 at 12:17 pm

I would LOVE a memory builder!! There ARE a great many things we can use it for!! I also love all the Felt Story Pieces that go with some of those classic stories with teachable opportunities as well as the ABC puppets! Kids ALWAYS get the letter recognition and sound quicker with a fun way to learn all about it and what better way than a character to relate it to!! :)

121 Julia November 13, 2012 at 12:19 pm

I’ve been eyeing up the refillable window blocks. We have a set of the regular, colored window blocks, but it would be so cool to be able to change what is on the inside of the blocks!

122 Genevra November 13, 2012 at 12:22 pm

love love love the endless possibilities!!!

123 Gloria Manjarres November 13, 2012 at 12:28 pm

125 Kellie Harbine November 13, 2012 at 12:32 pm

I would love to learn more about the creativity wheel and the wooden connectors manipulative toy.

126 Staci M. November 13, 2012 at 12:47 pm

How to decide – not easy at all. I would love test tubes for my students to explore with…as well as a light table – then all of the manipulatives to go with it – lucite pieces for them to explore!

127 Lisa Howie November 13, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Discount School Supply has so many wonderful materials! If I could choose anything it would be an endless supply of the liquid watercolors in every shade and plenty of watercolor paper to paint on!

128 Sarah November 13, 2012 at 1:09 pm

Discount School Supply has soooo many great things. I am in love with my magnetic board (the oil drip tray repurposed!), and am always looking for new magnetic items to use with it, so I would love to have the Magic Magnetic Shapes. And we would love to have the Memory Builder Discovery Box! Very Cool!

129 Katie November 13, 2012 at 1:15 pm

I would love some of the Bio Paint. I saw a demonstration on how the colors don’t mix and how the children made hand print x-rays with the paint. This would be great when we study the human body, to have the students make their own hands into x-rays.

130 Jenifer November 13, 2012 at 1:54 pm

I am so interested in the ‘Pop’ Toobs – the look like they will give little hand muscles a good workout! Love them!

131 MrsEYocom November 13, 2012 at 1:56 pm

I would love to have the floating Polar Ice Cap blocks! I have trouble finding new ways to use my water table. My kids love it when I change things up!

132 Christine Michie November 13, 2012 at 2:29 pm

I love what your preschool children are learning with the discovery box. I would love to see what my preschool class would do.
I have used the Magna-Tiles® Clear Colors from discount school supply at a teacher training class. I would love to see what my preschool class would do with them. So I would like to learn more about the Magna-Tiles® Clear Colors .
I enjoy reading your blog and seeing all the fun learning.

133 Jennifer Salaz November 13, 2012 at 2:57 pm

I would like to learn more about those 3D spindle puzzles. I would love to have more manipulatives for my toodler.

134 Tanya M November 13, 2012 at 3:45 pm

I would like to get Large Sunprint® Kit – 8″ x 10″ for my kids to experiment.

135 Kelsey Meyer November 13, 2012 at 3:56 pm

This memory box is awesome!!! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a light table for my preschool…..I have been trying to break down and buy one but it just hasn’t happened yet!!!

136 beth November 13, 2012 at 4:43 pm

I think a light table would be a wonderful addition to my classroom!

137 cathy Rehr November 13, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Fiddlesticks basic builder reminds me of toys from yesterday. Would love to share that with the preschoolers.

138 Terri Clinton-Reinke November 13, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Happy Tuesday-

I teach a sever and profound classroom in a small town in Iowa with limited funds. My biggest challenge is instructing a modified PE setting for my students.

I would love to have the alphabet beanbags coupled with the indoor/outdoor
shape toss board. There are so many ways we could work on gross motor skills,balance and Kindergarten academic skills for example “Throw the letter E into the circle shape. Another example if you have the letter c stand behind the circle shape. The ideas are endless. I use your ideas alot and modify to accomodate my wonderful kids.

Thanks for everything

Terri Clinton-Reinke

139 Amanda November 13, 2012 at 5:23 pm

My current favorite from discount school supply is our sensory table! We have the see-through sand-n-water table made by Jonti-Craft and love it. It is big enough to have a large group gathered around which with such young children they tend to enjoy exploring new things with a friend or 7. I have a never ending wish list of new things I would like to try and now this memory box is on the list! I have not seen this item before but the kids love putting things into containers, using items like ice cube trays to sort and scoop out of, I think they would have a blast with this box.

140 Debbie November 13, 2012 at 6:11 pm

I would love to get the Angeles® Lil’ Step™ Slip Resistant Riser for my class. I have a Smartboard that is placed a little too high for my children to reach. We made a star wand that helps them reach the high spots but this would be wonderful for them to be able to step on and use the Smartboard with their hands!

141 Chris Kelly November 13, 2012 at 6:36 pm

I would like to know ways you utilize the LightTracer Light Box.

Thank you.

I love your website!!

142 Chris Knopf November 13, 2012 at 6:51 pm

I would love to get the colorful wooden building rods for my classroom. I can see multiple opportunities to use them in the block area and during cognitive and math activities.

143 nancy deibert November 13, 2012 at 6:54 pm

I think the pattern piggies look like fun.

144 Rosie November 13, 2012 at 7:05 pm

I would enjoy learning more about the refillable window blocks. They look like they have many uses in the classroom

145 Brittney November 13, 2012 at 7:45 pm

I’m interested in the Zoob building set, because there are so many creative possibilities, which makes it ideal for any child’s imagination!

146 Brenda Branch November 13, 2012 at 7:59 pm

I would really love a light table in my home. My grandchilren & foster kidswould love it and since we do foster care it can be difficult to have time to make one.

147 Jenny Furlotte November 13, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Love this blog and thank you for passing on all of the enriching information to all of us!!!

I really want to get 6 Seat Original Bye-Bye Buggy®!!!! And the memory box would be a great addition to my lil daycare/preschool!

148 Birgit November 13, 2012 at 8:09 pm

I would like to check out the repositional clear Con-Tact cover. I have only recently learned how much fun you can have with it. We would put it on my daughter’s window and start making art work with all the bottle tops we have saved up.

149 Darcey November 13, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I would love the light table or the tactile discovery box. there are so many great things on this website! Thanks for the chance to win!

150 Nancy swenson November 13, 2012 at 9:03 pm

What a simple way to make a changeable matching game. While looking on the site I found the perfect small maple table 24″x24″ for a writing center that I am setting up.I don’t have a large room and haven’t been able to find a table to fit my space.

151 Lea November 13, 2012 at 9:04 pm

The Letter bean bags… I am in love with these. So many possibilities for sorting, spelling, matching, etc… and combining it with eye-hand coordination, jumping, aim, gross motor, and on and on. Thank you for forcing me to go to that site- I am going to add these to my bag of tricks!

152 Ashley Swistak November 13, 2012 at 9:06 pm

I would love to have a set of the Magna-Tiles Clear Colors construction shapes. We love to build … and deconstruct!

153 Heather November 13, 2012 at 9:08 pm

With a new baby on the way, I love the selection of shatterproof mirrors they offer, especially the two-position mirror.

154 Erica November 13, 2012 at 11:58 pm

Can’t wait for my painting supplies!

155 Chelsea November 14, 2012 at 1:43 am

I would LOVE the Field Day Activity Set

156 MARIA CAMPUZANO November 14, 2012 at 5:44 am

I would like to know more about the table games. It is a funny way to teach the theorical concepts . Ones that we could create at home.

157 Laura Markel November 14, 2012 at 7:07 am

I browsed around the Discount School Supply WEbsite. And not only would I love to have this discovery box in my classroom, but I really love the Tree Blocks that they make.
I am starting a new preschool program at my church and both of these items would be a great asset for my classroom!

158 Amy November 14, 2012 at 7:14 am

Changed out the drama play to an office, but guess what, the kids turned it into a post office! I love when they take an idea and run with it! The Angeles Mailbox at Discount School supply would be a great addition.

159 Dierdra November 14, 2012 at 7:37 am

We have been reading Eric Carle books this year and speaking about collage art with 4 and 5 year olds. I would like tissue paper squares to do collage art with and crepe paper to cut into squares. I would like to know more about blleding tissue paper and uses for that. I would love a chance to win a moemory box for me classroom.

160 Sandra Mesonero Ihle November 14, 2012 at 7:43 am

I am interested in the “Listening Lotto Game”. Sounds fun!

161 tina blakeman November 14, 2012 at 10:12 am

i would love to have the manipulatives that are for early childhood that are the counting bears, etc..these are great and I would love to have a set in my classroom to allow more children to use them.

162 Donna Allsworth November 14, 2012 at 10:22 am

I would love to have the Tabletop Light Box Item # JC5842 in my classroom. My students are always eager to explore with hands on activites.

163 Isabel Gonçalves November 14, 2012 at 12:03 pm

I am a Portuguese kindergarten school teacher and like your products.
The Memory Builder Discovery Box is very interesting and I wish I could win one. I also appreciate having the Peg Numbers Boards in my classroom.
Congratulations for your ideas and excellent products.

164 jessie horstman November 14, 2012 at 1:19 pm

The thing I would like most is the light table, how cool to be able to look at various items……in a whole new light, hehe:)

165 Candace Hergenrother November 14, 2012 at 1:28 pm

I would love a set of music blocks. Being a teacher of young children with severe disabilities, these blocks would allow all sorts of creativity and stimulation with the music, lights, textures, shapes and colors. It also would help them with such concepts as “put in” and “push”. I would love this in my classroom as I am sure my students would too!

166 Jessi Morris November 14, 2012 at 3:26 pm

In my classroom in years past, I have used the Colorations Shimmery Washable Watercolors with my students. The children love to paint with them! I am now an itinerant (traveling) teacher for children with special needs, so items that can be easily transported with several different uses are a must have. The Memory Builder Discovery Box would be a wonderful to have!

167 Dava Donaho November 14, 2012 at 11:52 pm

I would love to have the light table. It is on my wish list. I would also LOVE to have the Memory Builder Discovery Box. It would be a welcome addition to the classroom!

168 Shannon Sampsel November 14, 2012 at 3:29 pm

We order from DSS twice a year in our program and have had our eye on the “See All Sand & Water Table w/ lid”! Would be so amazing in the classroom!

I hope to win this memory builder discovery box for our program to use because we have a very low budget and aren’t able to buy that often for our classrooms. I can see this being a very popular tool in our classrooms!


169 Sarah November 14, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Love the liquid water color paints!

170 Kelly Williams November 14, 2012 at 4:03 pm

i would love to win this for my Pre K class!!!

171 Jamie Walta November 14, 2012 at 5:36 pm

I immediately went to the music products on the Discount website. I am always looking for new instruments to share with my students, and new kinds of music. I have my eye on the African Bolga Market Basket and Set of 6 African Music Instruments.
Thanks for the heads up on the neat memory builder discovery box, too. I just know my students would absolutely love to play with it!

172 Amanda November 14, 2012 at 6:07 pm

I would definitely use this! Love it!

173 Cheryl P. November 14, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Love the magna forms! I have a set in my classroom, but you really need more than one set!

174 Amy November 14, 2012 at 7:51 pm

There is so much at Discount Supply Store, I love the dress up. My class of three year olds love dressing up and pretending. I would love to try out the memory box.

175 Brenda Kelley November 14, 2012 at 8:07 pm

I love the race car tower. Awesome for visual-motor development. I also have bee looking for a new flannel board and found one here that was much cheaper. Also found some teacher support pages I hadn’t seen before. The memory box is intriguing and looks much like an activity I saw either on one of your e-mails or on pinterest.

176 Robin November 14, 2012 at 8:41 pm

I would love to have the set of boys dramatic play clothes. We have a dress-up area full of princess dresses and not too many options for the boys.

177 Becky November 15, 2012 at 8:23 am

Oh I LOVE THIS BOX!! My 2 and 3 year olds would love working with this in class! I also really love the pre-writing motor skills set…. Would love to have that in class too!

178 Becky November 15, 2012 at 8:25 am

I love this memory box! This would be amazing to have and to work with my 2 and 3 year olds. My class and I would also love having the pre-writing motor skills set! Both would be a great addition to a montessori classroom!

179 Shiloh November 15, 2012 at 11:25 am

I am interested in the dressing boards. I love that there is a seperate board for each skill.

180 Christie Goldman November 15, 2012 at 1:14 pm

I love the puppets that are kids. We have some that are animals and a great puppet theater but I’d love to have kid ones to act out our virtues, show them ideas how to make friends, and use manners, etc. So many great possibilities!

181 Rachel November 15, 2012 at 2:37 pm

It sounds so simple, but we NEED one of the Lego base plates. I am continually building a base for my daughter which takes up most of the Legos. So I guess we also could use more Legos. Oh, and look at the Lego fun table! I can’t stop :)

182 Patrice November 15, 2012 at 2:47 pm

I would LOVE some of the refillable window blocks. The children in my care are really in to blocks right now. I know they would love putting their own items in to a block. How special!

183 Libby Rogers November 15, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I would love to have the My Own Bakery for our kitchen at home. I love to bake with my 4 year old and I would love for her to have her own little space to pretend to bake along beside me.

184 Tracy anderson November 15, 2012 at 9:08 pm

I or should I say we, as in my teaching staff would love weighted puppies, blanket or weighted lap pad. I was told those would probably be a huge help with a few of our high needs children during circle times? We are not therapists so we are not sure…but have no dollars for access to bring in OT, SLP etc…

185 Katie November 16, 2012 at 12:25 am

I’d love to have the liquid water colors because I’m always seeing great ideas online for ways to use them.

186 Emily Nye November 16, 2012 at 10:42 am

I would love to have a set of mini binoculars to watch the woodland creatures that come into our outdoor playspace. The preschoolers would love to get a closer look at the squirrels and their homes.

187 Wendy November 16, 2012 at 10:46 am

Our class is in need of a book easel. Our Bib Books are in disarray. THey never have a place to go and do not lean against the wall without sliding down or warping. I would love an easel to store them on.

188 Cara Stepanik November 16, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Wow, where to start! I would love to learn more about the Mirror Observation Station and how to use it in a 3/4 year old class. I would also love to learn more about the Air-Dry Clay and how to best use it in a 3/4 age classroom. The My Healthy Plate sets also look very exciting and I would love to know more about incorporating them in a 3/4 age classroom and a healthy eating theme.

189 Faye E. Hunt November 16, 2012 at 10:56 pm

I would love the classic unit blocks for endless imaginative play for my son and daughter.

190 Catherine November 17, 2012 at 1:15 am

I would love to add the memory builder discovery box to my preschool.

191 johnna Ezell November 17, 2012 at 9:46 am

I would really like to have a dress up storage unit in my classroom. The deluxe dress up unit was very nice.

192 LaQuetha November 17, 2012 at 4:52 pm

The Giant Mystery Ball Maze looks really cool. It would be neat to learn more about and it looks like it would be a fun addition to my classroom.

193 Darcy Bauer November 17, 2012 at 5:46 pm

I’d love to have more magnetic manipulatives. Two I have seen on the websight are: Maga-tiles and Magic magnetic shapes. Both are something that the kids in my class would enjoy.
Another item I saw was the parachute play activity set. I have an old Gymboree parachute, and it wearing out. On snowy days, cold days, rain etc, and birthdays, I take it out to play at our circle area. There are a lot of things to do with it, but I need more ideas, and a new parachute.

194 nan edwards November 17, 2012 at 6:43 pm

I would buy the number line and alphabet mat. There are so many games we could play with those and children could have fun learning their letters and numbers at the same time.

195 Diane November 17, 2012 at 9:16 pm

We love Discount Supply and order from it regularly. We just got the ball hoop and the kids love it!

196 stacy November 18, 2012 at 2:49 am

I would like to try the STEP2® Little Helper Grocery Cart

197 Maria November 18, 2012 at 7:22 am

As an occupational therapist working in the schools, I am always looking for new items to add to my bag of tricks for developing motor skill. I just presented at a conference for preschool educators and higly recommended 2 games that I use constantly: Avalanche Fruit and the Sneeze and Snack Squirrel game–both are activities that will help develop the muscles of the hand, while motivating the child due to the novel aspects of the tools. Love the Gator Grabber Tweezers–new to me–a great alternative to strawberry hullers which can be hard to find and are more expensive than the Grabbers.

198 Diane Coleman November 18, 2012 at 8:08 am

Wow, I love this discount store, especially since they offer toys for children with special needs. As an early intervention specialist who works with children birth to three, I am always searching for toys that are specific for a particular need. I loved the “Button Bear Weighted Lap Pad.” This would definitely help a few of my sensory seeking children whom also have delayed fine motor skills.

199 Kathy November 18, 2012 at 8:26 am

I absolutely love Discount School Supply. Thye have tons of great products at fabulous prices. The Memory Builder Box would be a great addition to my classroom. I also like DSS Magna-Tiles and the activities they have to use on the light box.

200 Joy Rauner November 18, 2012 at 8:28 am

The “Noah’s Ark Shape Sorter” interested me. The name of the preschool that I’ve worked at for 26 years is Noah’s Ark. The sorter would also help my students strengthen their fine motor skills while learning about shapes.

201 Naomi Mier November 18, 2012 at 1:34 pm

I would love to have the creativity wheel shown on the Discount School Supply website. It looks like so much fun!

202 Iris November 18, 2012 at 7:13 pm

I am a Preschool teacher at a university in Atlanta, Ga. Our center often uses Discount School Supply as a primary source for many of the products we utilize every day. As I browsed through the site, I saw many familiar items. I also saw many unfamiliar items that I would love to learn more about. I am very interested in the Super Science Kit. My children LOVE exploring and science activities are always a popular hit!

203 Emily S November 19, 2012 at 12:50 am

There are so many things I would love from Discount School Supply . . . the manipulatives section is the most interesting to me right now. Marble race, magna-tiles, wedgits . . . we could be busy for hours and hours around here.

204 Dot November 19, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Love the idea of the
Bio Paint…….soooo versatile! My special needs preschool and 1st grade would truly benefit from the Pre-Writing products as well!

205 Linda November 19, 2012 at 5:39 pm

I would love more information on the Letter Construction Activity Set. The memory box looks so open ended. So many ways to use it!
