♥ Back to School


The annual Back to School sale at Teachers Pay Teachers is in full swing!  As I write this there is only about 5 hours left to save.  This sale is a favourite for me, because it gets me thinking about heading back into my classroom.  I picked up some great resources that I had been hoarding in my wishlist for a while.

I wanted to take a minute to share some of my personal resources with you. Each and every one of these is either used in my classroom or in my bestie's room.  Every picture will take you to more details if you click on them.

Make sure to stick around to the bottom of the post, because I have a reminder there for you as well.

Classroom Setup


Chalkboard is all the rage right now.  Have you seen the amazing borders from Creative Teaching Press?  #swoon

I've created 138 (yes, you read that correctly) schedule cards in a chalkboard theme.  There's something for everyone in this pack.  No matter what subject or grade you teach, I've got you covered. 

Here they are all set up for the first day of school:



I love integrating subject areas where I can. These 3 word work stations are always a favourite and I've bundled them together so you can save big!




This is one of the first math stations I use each year.  Kids can work on building their number sense with these task cards.  Or, use them to play Scoot, which is always a good time!

Have you made a lapbook yet?  They are a major hit with kids! My light lapbook teaches all the properties of light in a hands-on way with lots of great activities and demos too.



I love teaching the scientific method!  When I begin to introduce science fair I first project these posters on my SmartBoard in the classroom and go over every step one by one.  

I also display them for a reference on a bulletin board. When the kids ask "What comes next?" I just tell them to go see the board.
