I've been busy creating things this year, but have not been busy blogging about them. ;( Normally I write one specific post for each new item I upload to my TPT store, but I've been slacking lately. So I decided to do a highlight-them-all-briefly-in-one-post post.
Most recently I posted my Emergency Sub Plans - designed around a mini booklet I wrote about gravity. I wanted to make a few emergency plans so there might be more to come. If you have a topic idea you'd like to see, let me know in the comments. I don't like to leave new concepts and 'real' work for subs, but I do not like to waste an instructional day. I thought this was the perfect balance. And you don't need to buy a separate book to keep with the plans!
And apparently I'm not the only one who likes this idea. I sold 3 the first hour after it was posted! I've never sold so many of something so quickly after posting! I've sold lots of one item in a day, I've sold some fairly quickly after posting, but 3 within an hour? That's a joyous first for me! Grades 3-5
Before the sub plans I posted some Social Media Style Shout Outs:
These are also geared to upper elementary and are just a fun way to give quick, daily recognition.
Before the shout outs I posted a few lessons and kid book creation project for Where The Wild Things Are. Adjectives, synonyms, and writing... I used to do this with my second graders. It was one of my favorite things all year. 3-5 days of lessons for 1st - 3rd grade.
This Prime Factorization Puzzle was also posted about a month ago:
I designed it to be used one puzzle at a time for beginners, or all 5 combined for some serious thinking, which makes it an easy way to differentiation practice.
And last but not least, the Jello STEM Earthquake Lab. As always, the student lab book is included, along with step by step directions and photos for the teacher.
And now I think you're all caught up! Check these items and more out in my Teachers Pay Teachers store!
