I hope you enjoyed spending quality time with your families this Thanksgiving and you've recovered from over eating all that delicious turkey and fixings along with shopping till you drop on Black Friday. For many of us, it is time to head back to school tomorrow, but let's turn those frowns upside-down and SMILE! Teachers Pay Teachers is having a Cyber Monday and Terrific Tuesday Sale and you can save up to 28% off products at many different stores. My entire store is now fully stocked with many new holiday and winter themed products that are sure to bring a SMILE to your student's faces while they practice their skills. I have even put my Bundles on sale as well to save you even more money. Many of my new products are teacher friendly "PRINT & GO" activities. I know how overwhelming this time of the year can get and teacher's do not have time to be spending hours and hours preparing materials for their classrooms. Time is so precious and it should be spent with your families. Shop now and save a bundle. Be sure to use the promo code SMILE at the checkout in order to take advantage of these super savings.
Tomorrow, I plan on getting to school early and start decorating my room. I also need to find my elf on the shelf and special letter that I have to read to the class. It was such a big hit with my students last year and I can't wait to get started with my current class. I let the students know that the elf will be watching over my class and reporting back to Santa on how well behaved they are. The elf will move around the classroom each night and my students will have fun finding him as they arrive each morning. As an added incentive, the students will also get a chance to write letters to the elf as well as Santa. You can find a wide variety of holiday writing prompts by clicking here.
I hope you have lots of joyful moments with your students during this holiday season. Each day can get so hectic but if you can do your best to stick to a schedule and do your normal routines while engaging students in activities that they are excited about, the days will go by much easier.
