It's Friday, so it must be FREE!

It's "Free for All Friday" over at I'm Blog Hoppin's Teacher Week.  If you haven't seen this blog yet, it is amazing. You can find so many wonderful resources and teaching tips both on the blog and in the link-ups under each post. Happy Blog Hopping!

I am excited to add my freebie into the mix. It's a template for a blank ABC book. These can be used in any grade from K-6th. It makes a wonderful unit review or creative writing opportunity for your students. Use it however you wish!

Simply click  here to be taken to my TPT store where you can download it for free. If you have a chance to leave feedback under "feedback/reviews", I would appreciate it. Thanks!

I hope that everyone has a great weekend and stays safe in the hurricane.

Here are some wonderful freebies to help get your school year off to a stellar start! The Brain Bender freebie is one that I created and the others are from fellow sellers at

If you haven’t been to this site yet, you are missing out!!! It is full fantastic resources that will make your year so much easier and so much fun!

On the site, sellers such as myself, upload teaching materials they’ve created. You can find lesson plans, units, teacher printables, sub plans, guided reading activities, math resources, etc. If you find something that you like, you can download it immediately after payment.

Even better, many of the resources are free. That’s right, FREE!!! Now that’s in anyone’s budget. :0)

All sellers are required to post at least one freebie as an example of their work. Since this is supposed to representative of the quality you get when buying from a seller, most freebies are excellent. Here are just a few.

September Brain Benders ~ Grades K-4th
Sight Word Stamp ~ Pre-K-1st

If you download one of the freebies, please leave the seller positive feedback under "ratings/feedback." It is a huge help to them! Thank you!

I'm on a roll!

I'm on a roll....a tootsie roll, that is! Look at what I found in Target's Dollar Spot just a few days ago. There are so many wonderful math games that you can play with dice. Wouldn't these be great for adding even more fun to the games? Just shake and roll! You might want to put felt on the table and have students roll the dice onto the felt. This would greatly reduce the odds that you'll need an Advil or two after math is done.

But wait! There's more! Target even has playing cards to match!

I hope your last week or so of summer is a great one!
