New Shop, a Super Sale, and a Freebie!

Hello from southeast Georgia! We have been out of school for the last couple of days. No snow, but the threat of freezing rain spurred our school system to take precautions and close! Kudos to those in charge who put the safety of the children first and foremost. Thank heavens we did not have a mess down here like they did in Atlanta! I feel so sorry for all who had to go through that ordeal. I used to teach up there, and many of my teacher friends have nightmare stories! Thank goodness they were all able to get home safe. (eventually)

I am stepping out and opening a new store front on Teacher's Notebook. I just want to spread out and expand. I still love Teacherspayteachers, and always will, but I wanted to be able to reach out to a different audience as well. So if you wish, please follow me on my Teacher's Notebook store. I am still HappyEdugator there, too. It will take me some time to build the store, as I am just getting started, so there are not many products uploaded yet. I would love to have some followers, though. :)

Big news! I am having a Super sale in both shops this weekend! Stop by and take 20% off everything February 1 - 3!

So, back to school tomorrow as we thaw out down here in the South...but another cold spell is predicted again for next week. Hope we don't get snow!

New Freebie for You!

Cute Styrofoam Cup Snowman

I just had to post a picture of this cute Styrofoam cup snowman! Isn't he jolly? What a clever idea, and he is pretty big...about 4 feet tall! Great idea if you are still working on winter activties. A creative colleague put this up in our resource room this year. :) Thanks Janie!

Martin Luther King Holiday!

We started back to school this week. The nice thing is that we are off next Monday for Martin Luther King Holiday, so it will only be one week back before we have another holiday! How cool is that? :)

I have several products in my TPT store that relate to the holiday. I will be using this PowerPoint and Writing Activity on Friday. I usually have the students read and watch Robert Kennedy's speech also, before they complete the writing activity. Most of them have already heard MLK's  "I Have a Dream" speech, and watching Robert Kennedy's response to the assassination gives many of them a new perspective. The PowerPoint will be on sale this 20%!

I have other activities available for sale as well. Stop by my store (click on the Teacherspayteachers link) and see if anything I have may be useful for your needs.

Happy Teaching!

Happy New Year and a Sale!

Happy New Year everyone! It looks like it is time to get back to reality. I have been working for two days taking down Christmas decorations, and I am still not finished! Phew! Hopefully, I will have it all done by the time I go back to school, which lucky for me, isn't until Thursday! However, I know many teachers are headed back to the classroom this week, and some already have...or would have if they didn't have a snow day.

So, to celebrate, I decided to have a sale. If you stop by my TPT store, you will find everything marked down. I think that would be a great way to start the year!

Here are a few products for January that you might like:
