Teacher and Student IDs

This is our first year of homeschooling. I'll admit, that I am way out of my comfort zone. We've started, but it has been a struggle.

I was reading a homeschooling thread on Facebook and people were mentioning teacher discounts.



So what did I do? I made identification cards for both my daughter and me. I may go back and make the boy's Pre-Kindergarten ID Cards so they don't feel left out. One reader mentioned that she made id cards for all her children for field trips.

This could open up so many different possibilities for learning!

Discounts at museums, stores, anywhere you can get the educators discount.

This is what ours look like:
