Of course as many of you know, Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up for us here next week and I love that week! In a past school, we would get carnations from the PTO, and at another, we would get a special catered lunch. It always made us feel like rock stars, even if only a week out of the year. What types of events does your school host?
I think teaching is one of the greatest professions in the world! Teaching the next generation how to read, write, tie their shoes, work with others in a civil manner, or fill out a job application is a HUGE responsibility. These kids will be our doctors, attorneys, or next Presidents (whether we believe it or not right now). Whether the students and parents take time out to thank you, I want to be one who says thanks. For all you do (which I know from personal experience is a LOT).
One way to say thanks is by giving you a gift. :) Yay - I don't know about you, but I know I love gifts! For ONE DAY ONLY - Sunday, May 6th, I will be giving away one of my normally priced items all day long for all my teacher friends to grab! It is a way to express my appreciation. Oh, did I mention that I have teamed up with over 130 other Teachers Pay Teachers bloggers to do the same? WHAT?! Awesome!
Since there are so many bloggers involved, the organizers April McNair, Laura Candler, and Adrianne Meldrum will each be taking a specific grade level band in order to make it a little easier for you to grab the items that pertain to your specialty! Nothing like making it easy for you! You will find all the grades 3-6 bloggers in the linky party listed at the bottom of this page, which makes it super easy!
If you are looking for more great news, then you will like this little tidbit I am adding in: everything in my TpT store will 28% off (with the coupon code)! I will place EVERYTHING (yes, including the CCSS Packs, the Owl Theme forms and CCSS packs, The Complete Guide to Student Led Conferences - and everything else in my store!) on sale for 20% off. THEN - if you use code TAD12 at checkout, TpT takes an additional 10% off everything in your cart as well! Many of you know that I RARELY put my items on sale because I feel they are already a steal at my current pricing and I want to help out teachers as much as possible everyday. So if you have been on the fence about grabbing some items from my TpT store, I would load them up in your cart/wishlist now! The sale runs from May 6th-8th, and it has been known to take down a server or two. If that should happen, they are usually pretty quick to get it back up - just stop back at a later time. :) Click the image below to see my TpT store and get your cart revving!
Thanks for all YOU do teachers - you are appreciated by so many!
Here's what you are waiting for! I have decided to say thanks by giving everyone who stops by a copy of my Classroom Parent Handbook! I chose this item because it would appeal to almost every grade level, it is customizable right as a Microsoft Word document, and I figured you would be able to use it going into next school year! Enjoy and I would love if you rated the item while you were there if you have a second in between grabbing all the other awesome freebies listed down below. :) if you missed the freebie, it is on sale now as part of my storewide TpT Store sale, so you still get a deal!
Thanks for everything teachers! I wish you the best Teacher Appreciation Week ever!
