Frank Schaffer

When I was student teaching my mentor teacher had a HUGE binder full of Frank Schaffer publications (I think they came from books that she'd receive or printouts that were like online books) I've been looking forever, but haven't been able to find them anywhere. Anyone know where I could possibly be put on a mailing list or something?

I am very interested to know this too. I have been searching for the same thing (but for k-1) for a few years now. I think the binder I had when student teaching was called The Primary Teachers' Club. Anyway- sorry I can't be of more help but thanks for posting this!!! Hopefully someone knows.

Hers I think were primary too. She taught 2nd. I used some of the worksheets from there in my 4th grade class. They were really simple for getting through the basic concepts of closed/open circuits and other things like the water cycle.

When I lived in Arizona, I used to be able to buy Frank Schaffer books at my local Dollar Tree!!!! I was shocked when I saw them there and scooped them up - I ended up getting 4 books for four bucks. Can't beat that. Now that I'm in California I'm not sure. The closest dollar tree is 15 miles away and with gas being how much it is.....well I just can't justify it. Especially when I have about a billion 99 cent stores all over by me.

I know what it is! I have them, I got them at a garage sale!

It's from Frank Schaffer's Teacher Club which doesn't exist anymore. Apparently, you joined and they sent you certain worksheets/ dividers every week. Seems kind of like an old fashioned version of Edhelper.

A lot of the worksheets are in Frank Schaffer's Best Buy Bargain Series. http://www.frankschaffer.com/
You could also try Ebay or Book Closeouts to see if you can find them cheaper.
