Hot off the Press!
Believe it or not, teachers spend an average of over $500 of their own money on classroom resources and supplies,
That’s a lot…
So Fingerprint wants to give teachers their best learning apps – a $50 value – for FREE.
San Francisco, CA – September 14, 2017 – In support of teachers across the nation, Fingerprint and Highlights for Children have partnered on a back-to-school promotion offering every teacher in America a FREE subscription to Highlights™ Every Day and a copy of Scribble Press: Creative Book Maker for Kids for their classrooms. Beginning on September 14th through October 31, teachers can log on to http://fingerprintplay.com/back-to-school to register their school email address and gain access to these educational tools. “As teachers continue to leverage tablets and laptops as learning tools in the classroom, there is a growing need for them to have top-quality, educational content, which typically comes at a premium,” said Nancy MacIntyre, Founder and CEO of Fingerprint.
