Have you noticed that we have a new invitation on the right side of your screen?  We know that sometimes, creativity and inspiration can be like mystical creatures in the night: hard to grab onto and leaving you with doubt about whether you ever had them at all.  That’s why, we’re so excited to announce the opening of our new “Ignition Room“.  We felt that educators and artists everywhere needed a little jolt of inspiration.  Sometimes, all you need is a little spark to fan the flames of your creativity.  That’s what this room is all about.  Feeding your spark in the classroom and beyond.  Today, we’d like to give you a little preview of what’s in store in the Ignition Room, and extend an invitation for you to express your interest in joining our creative revolution.

Inside the Ignition Room

The Ignition Room is set to open in the spring of 2013.  Here, we plan to showcase an active community of users through chat dialogues, trending resources and links, and inspiration pinboards for all to enjoy.  But the real perk of the Ignition Room is the subscription – either as a gift or for yourself – of inspiration delivered to you digitally each month.  With your subscription, you’ll receive…



SparkPacks are our answer to your call for a creative burst.  Each month, you’ll receive a host of items in a digital pack that provide you with creative ways to teach, lead and learn using the latest strategies and resources out there.  Each monthly Spark Pack contains:



  • An integrated lesson seed to try that is aligned to Common Core Standards with ideas for extensions K-12.
  • An accompanying assessment guide for your lesson seed. (2) Strategy cards for STEAM in the classroom.
  • Our top tips for classroom management, organization, technology resources.
  • Occasional coupons, freebies, and partner items to add to your teaching toolkit.[/box]

These SparkPacks are available exclusively to Ignition Room subscribers and because they arrive digitally, you can just sit back, relax, and print your items each month.

Additionally, Ignition Room subscribers will automatically receive a 10% discount each month on all the merchandise available in our apparel and gift store, plus members-only sales events.  Personally, I’m excited about the new merchandise that’s going to be available – you can check out a sneak preview of just one of our upcoming designs by visiting our online boutique.

Limited Subscriptions Available

We have a limited amount of Ignition Room subscriptions available.  So we invite you to sign up below if you have an interest in the Ignition Room and all it has to offer.  Once we’re ready to unveil the space, those of you who request in invitation below will receive a user name and password to preview the room a full week before it’s opened up to the public.  We hope you’re as excited as we are to get those creative juices flowing each month!
