Holiday Shopping and a FREEBIE!

It's that time of year!  Let the shopping begin!!!  I have just recently learned about Ebates.  I had heard of it, but had no idea that is was just free money and how easy it is to get it!  You can use it for all of your online shopping.  I started using it this week and already have over $20 that I have gotten for free just by going to the Ebates site first and then going to the store I wanted to purchase from after that.  For example, I bought some linens from JC Penny so I went to, then from their sight I clicked on JC Penny (all of the stores are there), and then it went straight to the JC Penny site.  I earned back 6% of what I spent.  AND, you can still use all of the coupon codes, rewards, etc... that you would use at that store anyway.  So I used a coupon code from JC Penny, got my JC Penny rewards (from JC Penny), AND got 6% back from Ebates.  I also ordered some things from Ulta, used a coupon code from Ulta, got a free gift from Ulta AND got 8% back from Ebates!  SO EASY!

Another really great thing going on is the big Cyber Monday and Tuesday sale going on at Teachers Pay Teachers!!!!  I will have all of my items 20% off for these two days and if you enter the promo code:  CYBER, you will get an additional 8% off from Teachers Pay Teachers!!!  That's 28% off!!!!

And for a little freebie to get in the Christmas Spirit :), click below to download my Christmas Read, Write, Trace and Draw activity.  I have this in my TPT store for $1.00 for a set of two, but here's one for free :)

Read It, Build It, Write It for SPELLING Words - Template Freebie

I'm adding a free template that goes with my previous post - the Read It, Build It, Write It Center.   I've been using this same center for our weekly SPELLING words, in addition to using it for sight words. With this template you can type in your own spelling words to make cards for this center.   If you have this center from Teachers Pay Teachers,  

 just click on the template below to download from Google Docs.

Once you have DOWNLOADED this (make sure you hit the arrow to download or go to File -> Download to actually download it), click to open the download at the bottom left corner of your screen and it will will open in Word.  You may need to click on "Enable Editing" at the top of the page to enter your own spelling words.  

If you don't have my Read It, Build It, Write It Center, go HERE to find it at Teachers Pay Teachers.  Now you can use it for both:  Sight Words and Spelling Words.

Back to School Gifts for Teacher Friends

Today was our first day back (for teachers - students come back next Monday).  I made a little "Back To School" gift for the teachers on my team. Found these cute bags with matching notepads/pens and daily reminders/things to do pad at Michaels.  I used my Silhouette to spruce the bags up a bit with a monogram.  Wish I could give them all much more - they mean the world to me!

I also put up my Scientific Method Posters.  I made a ribbon banner (?) - ribbon sign (?)....not sure what to call it!  Here's a photo:

I have this kit up on TPT for only ONE DOLLAR and it includes the smaller posters - 1/2 sheet (like I used to make this) and the full size - whole sheet posters.  It also includes activities!  

My class is coming together!  I'll post some photos soon :)

The Scientific Method - Printable Posters and Activities :) Get a copy for free!

Just finished uploading a new kit on Teachers Pay Teachers.  This is all about The Scientific Method!  I love Science and am so excited that I will get to teach it to THREE different classes this year :)  I am teaming with two other first grade teachers so we will all teach our own reading block and then the classes will rotate after lunch between Science/Social Studies and Writing and Math.  

Here are a few images, but you can see the complete kit in a free preview.  Just go here and click on "Download Preview" at the top of the page under the "Add to Cart" button.

This 20 page kit is only ONE DOLLAR!!!  

This kit contains:  

*6 Full-Size Scientific Method Posters (8.5 x 11) plus a Title Header

 *6 Half-Size Scientific Method Posters (8.5 x 5.5) plus a Title Header
I made these in two sizes so they can fit in large or small spaces in your classroom!

*2 Full-Size Scientific Method Map Sheets for students to write about each step in the Scientific Method when conducting an experiment (one with clip-art and one without).

*2 Half-Size Scientific Method Map Sheets (one with clip-art and one without) - this half-size is perfect for gluing to the inside cover of a Science Notebook!

*A printable student book. Students will color pictures and label each step of The Scientific Method on the corresponding page. On the last page they will draw a line to match the step number with the step name.

Did I mention that this kit is only $1 ?????

Please go check it out and let me know what you think!  Leave me a comment and I will pick three random people to get a copy of this kit for FREE :)
