EdExpo 2015 - Top 10 Educational Products

Last week, I attended Ed Expo 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia as one of 50 teacher bloggers who were asked to rate educational products and come up with a top 10 list. Each of the 50 bloggers came up with their own list. Then, the lists were compiled to come up with an overall Top 10. Here's the list, David Letterman style!




I loved this awesome problem solving activity. Complete the circuit and the board lights up!



There was a tie at number 10. Doesn't this look like an awesome building adventure?!


Another cool circuit activity. This is one I want to try out for myself! Kids can draw a picture, poke holes, and build a circuit with tape! Totally cool!


These pencil grips are seriously comfy!


I don't know about you, but I always feel clothes before I buy them. These will make great fiddlers for your little fiddlers!


I need to get some of these bands for my kiddos. These are a great way to practice skip counting or multiplication facts!


A great number line to teach about fractions, decimals - 
you name it!


I can see letting my kids create inventions like crazy!


And another tie at number 4. Fidgets that you can use to teach. My favorite is the fidget with a marble in it!


This game is a blast! My kids have already played and ask to play again and again! Great way to practice making complete sentences and staying on topic.


This game was created to help kids learn to read sight words a little at a time and then immediately be able to read a book using those words. You can even use Scholastic bonus points to get one.


This was my personal favorite. Just buy the letters or numbers and download the free app. The coolest part is that if you make the word bat, a picture of a bat shows up on the screen. Change the b in bat to a c, and a picture of a cat shows up. Totally COOL!

To find out more about the products, just click the image and it will take you to the product website. If you would like to purchase an item from this amazing list, please visit Edmarket to find a local or online retailer.


What a great experience! It was so neat to see all the innovation in the educational field. Thanks to Sherron Washington I was able to provide input to the vendors and provide you with cutting edge activities for the 21st century. 

Have a Marvelous Monday!

  3. Expo looks so fun and interesting. I am also going to start teaching my kids at home and will need such educational products for them. Thanks for listing here. I think the educational activities and textbooks at http://www.kidsfront.com/english/correct_age_1.html will also be useful for me.
