It's my birthday week!! 

Well, I'm back as promised to tell you about my birthday sale. (I can't believe it, 2 posts in less than one week...I'm on a roll!) I'll be turning 30-ish this week and wanted to celebrate by throwing a sale in my TPT shop!

From Monday, April 3rd - Thursday, April 6th, my entire store will be on sale for 20% off!!

I'm also having a giveaway for $20 store credit! If you are the winner, just e-mail me with a list of $20 worth of items from my store that you would like. The giveaway will last longer than my sale, so you will have plenty of time to get in those entries!!

I hope to keep updating my blog more often once summer comes. I have some big changes ahead that I'll write about later when I get free time again!

April Fools' Day Hashtag Sale!

Image
I've been busy... fairly busy for me and what I'm used to. Not only have I been busy at work keeping up with a new reading program, but also I've been creating more resources for my Teacher's Pay Teachers store. I have never participated in a hashtag sale, and figured Spring Break was an easy time to start!


A group of sellers will be holding a sale this weekend. If you search #Aprilfools on Teachers Pay Teachers, you can find some of our product bundles discounted to $4.01! If you search #fooledyou, you can find some of our products for $1.04. I have posted 2 items for each hashtag. 
For the #fooledyou sale, I have listed items from two of my latest class decor themes.
Panda Theme Word Wall Letters
Nautical Theme Word Wall Letters
I have more products for each theme (and more to come). I also have clipart for more themes just waiting to be created! I plan on making decor with the following themes as well: space, Japanese kokeshi dolls, and sushi. Follow my blog or store …

Top Resources Loved by HomeschoolersIt's Homeschool Month at Educents! You may wonder why I would be posting about homeschool deals when I'm a classroom teacher. Well, next fall I WILL be homeschooling! Our family will be making a big transition. After 8 years of teaching in Japan, we will be returning the the states. In order to make the transition easier, I am going to stay home at teach my boys for at least a year. Our oldest has visited the states twice (once when he as only 10 months so I don't think he remembers it). Our youngest has only visited once. 

So, I have been researching homeschool curriculum and ideas and was happy to hear that this month is Educents Homeschool Month. Read below to find out about some of their great resources!

Are you looking for a comprehensive homeschool curriculum that's prepared with multiple subjects, or do you desire to supplement the curriculum you already have with additional trusted homeschool resources? You've come to th…

Educents Homeschool Holiday Gift Guide

{Affiliate links below}

As October is ending and Christmas is approaching, many parents like me are starting to think of gift giving. My husband and I have never been too big on getting the boys a lot for Christmas. Any toys we get them usually end up forgotten in the toy bin. I really like the idea of getting them educational items because they seem to capture my boy's attention better than toys. I'm not sure if it is because both my husband and I are teachers (it's in their blood) or we just hit the jackpot with these two... they really only stick to their building toys. 

If you are like me (or just have/know kids who are really into learning) this Holiday Gift Guide from Educents is worth a look.
Gifts for ages 3 to 8Life of Fred Math Books This first item is something I really want to get my oldest. He enjoys math so I'm hoping his love of math will get him interested in reading these math based books.  Story-based math learning has proven time and again to be one of …

So I know I haven’t posted in a while, but I wanted to share this great deal! I grew up in the 90’s which meant I was (okay, I still am) a big fan of The Magic School Bus. When I learned that they had a monthly kit I was REALLY excited. While I cannot subscribe now because the cost of shipping overseas, I do plan on signing up when I return to the states so I can share my love of science with my boys. Want to learn more? Keep reading!

Teachers Pay Teachers News!

Image
Wow, so I'm really not good at keeping up with my blog. I'm really trying to change up my look and my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Eventually I'd like to change up the look here as well. I need to figure out how to make my own template.

   Anyways, I have uploaded a new profile picture for TPT and I'm quite happy with it. This time EVERYTHING in the image was made by me (clip art and font)! It took me a while to get it right but I *think* it is how I want it now. Here it is:


It is circular for TPT, but I left it like this for my store button. I don't know why but I think sloths are adorable! 
   In other store news: I've been working on more interactive notebooks. I am going through science themes and making activities to go along with each one. So far I only have two uploaded. Here is what I have so far.
