There was a sheet which listed all the items, including the Starter Kit.
A Note From The Teacher Starter Kit - $14.95
The Starter Kit comes with a plastic carrying case to store your monthly note cards and post cards and a bonus “thank you for the terrific gift” note card.
The Starter Kit comes with 5 dividers and assorted labels that you can use to set up your carrying case and keep everything organized. It also came with 6 fine point markers and a ball point pen.
Various Note Cards - Value: $4? ($1 each)
Teacher Peach also came with 5 note cards that were all individually wrapped with envelopes. One card which said “Welcome to School” was a bonus card in this box. The cards ranged from congratulatory (wow you did it!), to inspirational (be patient) to parent communication (you know your child better than anyone).
Super Work! Postcard - Value: $1
Various Postcards - $3? ($1 each)
This box also came with 4 postcards. One was a geometric design that’s meant to be colored in and two others were more congratulatory. I’m not sure in which instance you’d mail the final card “Remember today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday” to a parent or child. I think it might be a nice reminder to put on your desk though!
I Care Stickers - Value: $0.37
Inspirational Seals - Value: $0.60?
I also received three forever stamps and one really cute $0.47 teacher stamp. It also had four envelope seal stickers with inspirational quotes and a sample of four different stickers. This box’s anecNOTES was filled with tips and ideas for writing thank you notes.
Finally, there is an order form which allows you to order full sets of some of the same note cards, post cards and stickers included in the Starter Kit.
Verdict: The Note from the Teacher from Teacher Peach is a nice idea. I like that it promotes teacher/student and teacher/parent communication which is the linchpin in every classroom community. As a teacher myself, it is nice to see a subscription box devoted to my profession. However I don’t quite see the value with this particular box. Most of my parent communication is done via email or phone call, but I always hand-write my thank you cards to students and parents. I typically buy a large box of note cards and markers at Target for less than $20 and they last me the whole year. Including an order form in this Starter Kit made it feel more like a sample promotional pack rather than a thoughtfully curated box.
