Teacher Appreciation Goodie Bag Freebie

Teacher appreciation week is in full swing this week and I decided to give my teacher friends something fun and new to use! This post is brought to you by Go Teach!, formerly the Elmer's Teacher Club. Go teach! is an amazing loud and incredibly proud new community created to inspired, empower, and support teachers like YOU!

When I saw these Expo markers I knew they'd make great gifts!

If you look closely at the end, you can see that they have a ink indicator that tells you exactly how much ink is left in the marker!
That just blew me away! How many times do we go reach for a marker just to find that it's dead? No longer my friends! Just take a peek at the side and you know exactly when they are running out! I especially appreciate that every marker comes loaded above the full line!

These would make such awesome gifts for teacher friends! Take a look at what I made:
Free teacher goodie bag toppers! Great gift for teacher appreciation or BTS time!

It was so easy to make these! You will need cellophane baggies that you can pick up at the craft store and the following materials:

Now fill your bag with markers:

Cut the FREE printable you can pick up HERE.

Fold it over the baggie.

Last, staple it closed! You are all done!

These teacher goodie bags turned out so cute and were SO easy to put together.

Colorful Resources, New Books, and Fun Pens

Five for Friday is here! Here is what we've been up to:

1. Testing Buddies
Testing Freebie
We have testing buddies at my school. Each class gets partnered up with an upper grade class and we write notes for the big kids. Instead of writing letters, we write how to directions for rocking their test! Our fourth grade friends love them! You can grab a copy of these for FREE from my shop :-)

2. Field Trip
We went on our field trip to the aquarium. It was a fun trip! When preparing for field trips, we usually send out multiple handouts to parent chaperones. I decided to change it up this year and create an all in one field trip flipbook. This book saved us! Everything I had to communicate to our chaperones was in one handout! 

3. New Goodies
If you are on IG you *might* have heard about the new Flair pen colors. I saw them first on @thecreativeclassroom's IG and I ran out to get my pack! The colors are beautiful! I especially love the teal one.

4. Comprehension Pocket Books

Reading comprehension foldables perfect for 1st and 2nd graders! They focus on story elements, characters, and many more skills!

We started using these new comprehension mini books and they have been a hit! My kids love to do them!! They are easy to assemble and can be used with any book. 

 5. New Books

We got some new books for our classroom library and these were our favorites! They are smaller versions of the pigeon books. The only negative is that they ALL want them at the same time. It's a good thing that we will be rotating books each week :-) I found these on Amazon.

Now go link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

Story Elements Flipbook

How often do you touch on story elements? I try to cover these skills at least once a week, but I'll admit that sometimes I let these basic elements slip for weeks at a time. This is apparent when I ask my students basic questions and they don't know what to say! I needed something to help me stay on track and review elements of literature more often. I'm all about making things engaging and different, so I whipped up this double sided flipbook!
This story elements flipbook is perfect for first and second graders! You can cover setting, characters, plot, title, author, and illustrator all in one flip book! Two sizes are included!
Available HERE

As you can see, this flipbook covers all of the essentials: 
  • Setting
  • Characters
  • Beginning, Middle, and End
On the back cover, the children can jot down the title, name of the author, and the illustrator. 

One of my favorite things about these books is that they only require one sheet of paper per child! Assemble the one book; then cut down the middle. You have created two books from two pieces of paper! 

Want to see the assembly process? Check out the video below. (the video is of my Author's Purpose Flipbook)

Shortly after posting these, I received requests from teachers for a larger version to use with younger children who need more space for writing/drawing. I got to work and created an extra version that is included for free in the download!
