Murfreesboro, TN - Going back to school was never so fun - and easy - for the teachers in Murfreesboro. That’s because Barnes & Noble has created a special section just for them. The new Barnes & Noble @ School section at Barnes & Noble Murfreesboro features a vast selection of workbooks, flash cards, manipulatives, educational toys, puzzles, games, art supplies and decorations.
“We’ve expanded our product selection for educators with Barnes & Noble @ School, a special section that helps save them time and money by offering everything they need for the classroom in one convenient place,” said Sarah DiFrancesco, Director of Community Relations for Barnes & Noble. “Teachers normally run all over town to find everything they need for the classroom. Now they can shop for everything in one section dedicated just for them.”
The new section offers an expanded workbook selection with subcategories of phonics, writing, spelling, vocabulary, reading comprehension and math; flash cards for every grade, including new touch-and-feel and lift-flap flash cards; educational manipulatives that help children learn through hands-on experience, such as stacking blocs, magnetic letters numbers and shapes; a huge selection of educational toys, puzzles and games that improve memory, matching and identifying skills, and reinforce learning through visual and tactile methods.
