School's ending, new products, and Monday Meet Up!

We're also pulling together our final terracycle shipments!
This is just about half of it! We're getting the last bit ready now!
So, we are officially wrapping up the school year finally! Just seven days to go! We've got a lot of fun things coming up like Field Day and the last day of school gathering. In the meantime, we've got our 10 days left countdown going. Each day I reveal the activity for the following day. Last year we popped balloons, this year I've taped a bunch of envelopes to the board and we open a new one each day.

I've spent my last couple weekends working on a couple new things for my own classroom and my TpT store. I'm really excited about them, and I hope they'll be of use to some of you!

The first is this set of writing papers to use to make a class book based on "The Day the Crayons Quit." There are 26 different school supplies quitting this time! Have your kids write a letter explaining why their school supply is quitting and then put them all together for a cool class book! There are two versions of the book pages, one realistic for fancy color printing, and the other for the more frugal black and white printers!  ;) Grab both versions together for just four measly bucks!

And if you haven't checked out my latest novel study unit yet, then you must! It's for one of my favorite books of all time, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. I can't wait to use this next year as my novel study while we study simple machines in Science! 78 pages of goodness for just $6!

Both of these items have clip art from my brother in them! Don't you love the school supplies? Grab the set (with happy and sad faces) in his store for just $4.50! Perfect to spruce up a school supply list or your parent newsletters!

I'm also linking up with the Teaching Tribune for their fun Monday Meet Up. I'm sharing about my BBB Michele from Coffee Cups and Lesson Plans!


  1. Do you need any writing instrument labels? :) I had to chuckle at not knowing anything about being a mother or knowing anything about sports...

  2. You know it is always about the good coffee! Especially when I have so many school days left! We aren't done until the 25th!

  3. I LOVE Hugo Cabret ~such a wonderful book! Too bad I HAVE to use SpringBoard next year but if I can sneak Hugo in, I will! :)

  4. So awesome to find another teaching blog written by a male!
