One classroom trend I know is different from when I stopped teaching is...BLOGS! I think during the last couple of years, the teaching social media (blogs, websites, facebook, twitter, and now pinterest) has exploded! I think it's so amazing and I am continually inspired by how many creative teachers out there are willing to share their talent with the blogging world!
Another trend that I am so loving for the classroom is teacher-made materials! Who else knows better what teachers need teachers themselves? I was always making materials for my kindergarten kiddos, and now I am even more motivated to make materials for my little one (as well as stock up my collection for when I return to the classroom).
So, to start off my year of printable units, my BACK TO SCHOOL UNIT is ready for purchase in our brand new Teacher's Notebook Store! I used the cutest school-related clipart from Digi Web Studio. It is 31 pages of fun math and language arts activities to do at the beginning of the school year. It can be used with preschool, kindergarten, or first grade. Take a peek at what's inside...
The unit is regularly priced at $5.00, but for ONE WEEK ONLY (until Tues. July 19), since you are a faithful FBU follower, you can have it for 30% off making it $3.50.
