Back-to-School Resource Ideas!

August = STRESS for many teachers because it's the month that we head back to school.  In my opinion, back-to-school time is even more stressful than the hustle and bustle of December with the holidays... would you agree?

There are a handful of things, however, that I look forward to during the month of August, and the TpT Back-to-School sale is definitely one of them!!  Have you heard?  When you shop at TpT on August 3rd and 4th, you'll get 28% off regular prices!  What a great chance to stock up on items you'll need this school year!!!  Just be sure to enter the promo code when you check out!!


I am linking up with several elementary bloggers today to feature our favorite Back-to-School resources along with our best sellers.  It was difficult to choose just one Back-to-School fave, but I finally decided to feature my Partner Play bundles!


I have created a set of 90 fluency-building scripts that students can read with a partner.  After you teach students your partner play expectations and make the copies, this can be a student-led activity for the remainder of the semester, requiring minimal teacher facilitation.  I have a bundle of scripts written for 2nd and 3rd grade readers, and another set for 4th and 5th grade readers to start off the school year. These can be used as a reading center or in classrooms that implement Daily 5, allowing you to work with small groups of students.

I have received a lot of encouraging feedback from teachers saying that their students absolutely love reading the scripts.  If you want to check out a freebie for each age group, just click on the following scripts!
        

My best-selling resource is my Main Idea Craftivity Cones. This is always one of my favorite activities during the school year, and I have students from years past mention it to me when they see me.  (I also have a version available for lower elementary students- click HERE if you want to view the lower elementary version.)

Thanks for stopping by, and happy shopping on Monday and Tuesday!

  3. I agree that back to school is way more stressful than the holidays! We only have 1 week to get classrooms sorted, lessons planned, meetings attended, meet the teacher accomplished, copies made, oh and maybe eat or sleep! TpT to the rescue! :)
