Check Out the Gifting Sense Glossary

What is a warranty? You know what Sales Tax is, but do your students? Download and distribute the Gifting Sense Glossary. Kids can take it home and post it on the family fridge. Consider confirming the learning that happens during your workshop by incorporating some of the terms into an upcoming vocabulary or math test.

Give Every One of Your Students a Free Gifting Sense Pencil!

Finish your workshop the same way we do, with a smiling reminder for kids to “…sharpen their pencils, and calculate the DIMS Score before (they) ask for, or buy something”. Gifting Sense pencils are free to any educator who requests them. It’s our small way of saying “Thank You Teachers” for everything you do – especially this year!
