Are you looking for top educational products for your school or home? Here’s a look at the Top 10 Educational Products to use with your child or students.
I had the chance this past weekend to attend EDExpo2015 in Atlanta. While there I visited each of the vendors’ exhibits to see the largest selection of education products and resources.
Yeap, you guessed it, I was pretty much in teacher heaven.
EDexpo connected buyers and sellers to the largest and most comprehensive distribution network. It is a yearly event for members of EDMarket, focused on retailers locating items to purchase products for their local stores from the manufacturers.
Plus they added special sessions for principals, school administrators and curriculum directors to the EDexpo Leadership Institute too.
In my opinion, EDmarket Board Members made a brilliant decision to select 50 teachers with blogs and invite them to attend and share about their event this February 2015 in Atlanta through social media. Lucky me was invited to attend and be completely amazed at the educational items that are available for 2015. There were some very talented inventors and sales reps who I had the opportunity to chat with about their products too! I can’t wait to share them with you!
Did you follow our tweets and shared on instagram with the hashtag #edexpo2015?
The one goal all the bloggers were given was to nominate our TOP 10 favorite products. Are you ready to see who made the list? Here are the top 10 products that were selected from 50 bloggers who visited the entire vendor floor looking for the very best for their classrooms and you!

Teacher Recommended Products.. powerful Thumbs Up!
When you group together 50 teachers with one common purpose of finding the very best products it can be a pretty empowering experience. It’s fun to see how we each had our own take on all of the items available and which ones we say in detail. As a manufacturer and retailer I just want to take a moment to remind you that your town is always surrounded by networks of teachers ready to give you their opinions for what works well in their classrooms… just ask.
We’d love to see successful educational shops in all of our local towns empowering schools, teachers and parents too!
Here’s a social media recap of our weekend and all the treasures we found at EDexpo Exhibit Hall. Plus a peek at the pictures EDmarket shared on facebook, it’s so much fun to see so many smiles and people enjoying what they do for children.

Networking with Bloggers
Everywhere I go I love to connect with bloggers I’ve known through various networking opportunities including conferences. It was such a special treat to meet blogging teachers at #edexpo2015.
Here’s a group that got together at the Teacher Dinner that I met through the talented Kid Blogger Network. (from left to right ) Jennifer from My Boys and their Toys, Victoria from ABC Creative Learning, ME – Kim, Shaunna from Fantastic Fun and Learning, Colleen from Raising Lifelong Learners and my new FL friend Penny from Penniless Teachers.
