Big Savings!

We are so excited to announce that we will be joining in on the huge site-wide Teachers Pay Teachers Back to School Sale on August 18th-19th! This is such a great opportunity to grab any items on your wish list for an awesome price!

All of our products will be 20% off and if you use the TPT promo code: BTS13 you will get 28% off everything in our store!

Have you checked out our store recently? We’ve added some fantastic new resources this summer. Our biggest selling items this month have been all about behavior. We have over twenty themed behavior charts available and a set of editable behavior charts!

 


We had so much fun creating these colorful Special Days Calendar Cards! When you purchase calendar cards from a teacher store, you typically get a couple of holiday cards but they do not even begin to cover all the “special days” like book buddies, field trips, or early release days! Our Special Days include 168 cards and cover nearly every special day possible. As always with any of our products, if you would like us to add something additional to this pack we would be more than happy to accommodate to your needs.

If you missed our fabulous August Facebook Frenzy last weekend, then you missed out on grabbing this fun paper bag book activity for the beginning of the year. This is a great way to get to know your students – but it is also a fun reminder to pull out at the end of the year to see how much your students have grown and changed. We have included directions on making the paper bag book and guarantee it is simple! The book creates ten pages on the inside if you use all of our inserts.

This is the best time of year to grab our Magic School Bus resource. So many teachers use and see the value in these fun and educational videos, but some concepts are hard for students to pull from the story line. We created this with those wandering minds at heart! After watching all 52 episodes we created a note-taking page for each one. There is also a little extension activity included for each episode. We know the price tag is a little higher on this resource, but it is definitely worth the money! Normally you pay $0.39 per episode, but with this sale each episode will only cost 28 cents!

We’ve been diligently working on our Classroom Job System. We’ve seen many teachers attempt to delegate jobs to students and seen their plan backfire. Essentially the success of setting up classroom jobs is all about approaching students in a way that makes sense to them. We have spent the summer researching and developing a way to introduce jobs and build a working community in your classroom.

This weekend we’ll be posting more about the philosophy behind our job system and how to set everything up. Here is a sneak peak at the upcoming product!

Tell us one thing from our store that is on your wish list and why in the comments below. We will choose one person at random to win their wish-listed item today! Be sure to leave your email address in your comment so we can contact you if you win!

Running a Giveaway + An Awesome Giveaway!

We get a lot of questions asking for help with giveaways. We’ve put together a quick picture tutorial for those of you who are new to setting up a giveaway. Rafflecopter has been our giveaway generator of choice. If you use a different site, please let us know so we can check it out!

Step 1: Go to http://www.rafflecopter.com

Step 2: Choose the free option or decide if you want to pay a monthly fee. {The upgraded features are new and limit your free options a little, but the free tool works just fine!}

Step 3: Sign up or log in

Step 4: View your dashboard, you can start a new giveaway, view giveaways starting soon, and giveaways that are completed – click on plan one now

Step 5: This is the screen you will see when starting a new giveaway. Fill in the title of the giveaway – no one will see this but you, so a nickname or description of prizes works well.

Step 6: Fill in your prize. You can add multiple prizes if needed, it’s best to put the title of what you are giving away. The add a picture feature is an upgrade, but you can always share a picture on your blog post.


Step 7: Choose your options on how entries can be earned. Again, not all these features are available with the free giveaway plan, but there are ways around that. Since you can create your own option, things like pinning to Pinterest can still be used – you’ll just have to specify the entries need to be verified by leaving the URL

Step 8: Pick your date range.

Step 9: Write your terms. Rafflecopter used to do this automatically, but it seems to be an upgraded feature now. Briefly put the basic terms of the giveaway (when it occurs, who can enter, how the prize will be delivered, etc.)

Step 10: Get the code! Then you can post it on your blog or FB page

Congrats if you’ve made it this far! We will write more about giveaways next Q&A Monday – more specifically how to stay organized when running a multiple donation giveaway.

Since we set up a giveaway to make this tutorial, you all have a chance to win our Jan Brett Winter Book Units.
