Game Freebie, May Currently, & Teacher Appreciation!

We are very excited to have flipped our calendars this week to May. Not only is school one month closer to being over, but the weather is FINALLY warming up! I'm a little late, but wanted to get jump in on the fun for CURRENTLY

It is pretty self explanatory, but here is mine. 

Here is Robyn's currently.

How are you celebrating "Teacher Appreciation Week?" Normally we don't get anything, but this year the PTO has made something special everyday. Today, Monday was "Bring a Flower for Your Teacher Day!" I got quite a few, and now everyone is sneezing while taking the Spring District Writing Prompt! Oops! They sure are beautiful though! :) I am looking forward to see what surprises we are receiving for the rest of the week!

Are you guys SO excited for Tuesday and Wednesday? I know I am because it's TpT's Teacher Appreciation Sale! TpT is taking an additional 10% off any stores' sale price WITH THE COUPON CODE TAD13.  My store will be 20% off. So if you have anything in the is the time to get it! :) Click here to check out my store! I'm linking up with *Bunting, Books, & Brainbridge* for the Fabulous Feedback Linky Party! We love to receive meaningful feedback from our TPT friends. It helps us improve as teachers, creators, and sellers! Thank you! :) 

One of my fellow blogger friends had an awesome post here about her "plan of attack" on the sale. She is super funny and it makes total sense! Check her out for some laughs and tips!

If you are unsure about what to get with this awesome sale check out one of my favs. This text structure packet was one of my most valuable packets used in my classroom. The kids "got it" and excelled at the skill. It is a very popular item in our TPT store, check it out by clicking on the image below!

How could I forget, even though it is Monday and I am exhausted, I can't forget about one of my favorite linky parties! I am also linking up with our friends for the Manic Monday Linky! Have you ever played the Category Game? It is simple, fun, and educational! We use it as a reward if students get their work done and work hard throughout the day. Students love it and become so competitive! It is our new freebie for the week! Check it out! 

Here is an example of what the chart looks like:

You can download it here for free! :) Please leave us some feedback, we'd love to hear what you think! 

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! :) 

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday


  1. The silence before the school day begins is such a special time!! I've always been an "early bird" teacher. I love to be one of the first ones in the building, and one of the first ones OUT of the building! I get sooooo much done during the silence of the morning! :)


  2. Oh my--between the massage, the mani/pedi and the acupuncture, we are for sure on the same page. Allergies here in CT are killing me and my kids as well. Are you all in school as late as I am? We're not done until the 26th :(

  3. Listening to silence is just amazing.. especially before the day begins. =)
