Flash Freebie

Do you have the same problem I do...keeping those kiddos actively engaged in learning up to the bitter end despite all the schedule changes that are thrown at you.? It's a challenge every year. To help me keep my students on board and learning until the last day, I've been working on a fun End-of-the-Year Fun Breaks packet. It's done and I'm offering it as a flash freebie for a very short time in my TPT store. Click on the picture below to head over and grab a copy.

Thanks in advance for any feedback! Have a super relaxing weekend. We all need the rest to get through these last crazy weeks!

TPT Sale and Link Up

 I am very excited about the TPT sale on May 7-8 for Teacher Appreciation Week. I've had my eye on so many things on TPT lately. This weekend I spent a little time getting my wish list organized ahead of time for the sale. Hopefully, this will save me some much needed time and allow me to get some great items that I've really been wanting.

I am also participating and throwing a TEACHER APPRECIATION SALE this Monday, May 6th - Saturday May 11th - 20% off everything in my store!  May 7th and 8th TPT is also offering an extra 8% off! Type in TAD13 to get the extra 8% off. You can click on the picture below to head to my TPT store and check things out.

I'm also linking up with Mrs. Leeby's blog.  She is hosting a Link Up for the TPT sale. Click on the picture below to head over and link up your store or blog if you're participating in the TPT Teacher Appreciation Sale. It's also a great resource for finding several other TPT stores that are participating in the sale.

May Currently & a Shout Out About a CCSS Resource

It's May (already????), so I'm linking up for Farley's very fun Currently. I'm not sure life can get any busier than it already is, so I'm reminding myself to stop and enjoy the signs of spring and this warm weather we are having (finally).

Want to link up and do a Currently? There were already 258 people linked up this morning....Wow! Check out Farley's blog

I won an amazing resource from Christina Bainbridge this week. It's her 100 Days to CCSS Success for 3rd Grade. I love the fact that it covers the ELA standards and can be used daily as a review. Since it's the end of the year, I pulled a few cards to review Main Idea/Details. I like the fact that the cards list the standard and include questions for discussion. She's working on creating these for other grade levels as well. Thanks, Christina, for making such a useful resource.
