Tax-Free Weekend

I can’t help it, I never get tired of buying school supplies! I think maybe it has something to do with being a teacher. The good news is that this coming weekend (August 7-9) you will be able to get school supplies tax free!

The Ohio Department of Taxation has announced the sales free tax weekend or “Sales Tax Holiday.”

 

During the weekend, the following items will be exempt from sales and use tax:

  • Clothing priced at $75 or less
  • School supplies priced at $20 or less
  • School instructional material priced at $20 or less

I couldn’t wait until the weekend to purchase these supplies in the dollar section of Target.

I found these vinyl cubes that can be used with dry erase markers so I can change the sides as needed. You can write numbers and have your daughter or son roll them and multiply the numbers. You could also use them for alphabet letters and sounds, and the ideas keep on coming….

I was excited to purchase these tempera paints that are in a pouch. You only use what you need, no mess or wasted paint. I can’t wait to do activities with my granddaughter who is officially starting preschool this year.

My whiteboards need to be replaced and for $1.00 the price can’t be beat! They hold up really well and I use them every week when I am tutoring my students.

Here is one way that I use whiteboards when teaching my students. As you can see we were working on two different base words and suffixes. Be sure to use dry erase markers for easy wipe off. You can see there are some smudges on the board and that is why I am replacing this one. It was a great investment for a buck!
