Calling All Kindergarten Teachers!
Sawdust Engineers Offer Teaching Aids
The Sun City Center Sawdust Engineers are looking for school teachers who need durable, well-made teaching aids in the form of toys, for their classroom students. The craftsmen and craftswomen of the Club have volunteered their time and skills to build some of the most creative and educational products that you'll ever find. And the price is right. FREE!
Forty different items are available to choose from. Some examples: doll house, puppet stage, snail puzzle, alphabet butterfly, color spinner, lacing trainer, shapes and variations. These toys and teaching aids can be used by children in pre-school, kindergarten, first grade, those with learning disabilities, and those who learn best using visual and touch.
Interested? Here is what to do. Have a letter signed by your principal on school letterhead verifying your employment. Bring that along with your school identification card to our gift shop. There you will be allowed to choose one major item and five other smaller items, but no two alike. And you can come back each new school year to receive another set each of which has a value of more than $150.
The Gift Shop hours are 8am to 3:30pm Mon-Fri, Saturday till noon during the summer months. We encourage you to call Annette (813-731-6502) to confirm a time for your arrival. Go to the Contact Us page for directions. Also the Campus Map is available.
These forty hand-made items and many, many more are available for sale to the general public also. Come see us. You'll love our toy and gift item selection. To learn more about the club and see more photos, go to Facebook at Sawdust Engineers of SCC.
