Over the years I’ve spoken to various teachers (mainly in secondary schools) and one topic seems to crop up more than others. It’s the problem of students turning up to lessons without a pen, pencil, ruler etc. Apparently this leads to a measure of disruption and wasted time at the start of lessons while students try to beg, steal or borrow what they need to benefit from the lesson.
Fortunately there are now a couple of simple, low cost products which can help to solve this problem.
The first is the “Student Essentials set” consisting of three good quality black ballpens, two full length HB pencils, a 15 cm ruler, eraser and a pencil sharpener …all packed in an A5 size “exam friendly” clear PVC zip slider wallet. From only 85p ex vat it will almost certainly prove useful for students and teachers alike.
The second is the “Value Maths set”…and once again it comprises the same A5 size
“exam friendly” clear PVC zip slider wallet but with some components which are specific to maths lessons: a metal compass and half pencil, 180 degree protractor, 15 cm ruler, sharpener, eraser, two good quality black ballpens and a full length HB pencil. From just £ 1.25 ex vat it should help restore a bit of order at the start of maths lessons!
