Summer Sale, New Products for K-8! #TpT
Hello friends - it's been quite a summer so far here in Georgia with the Knights, including our first trip to NYC (post coming soon) and several family and friend get-togethers. It has been so much fun, and I have really enjoyed this past week at home, getting new products into my Teachers pay Teachers store! (Psst... 15% off sale from June 30-July 3!) I have been adding to my idea list all spring and have finally had time to sit down and get them drawn out. I've decided that I really like the look of hand-drawn resources for a sketchbook/notebook feel, and just to step away from the screen for a change!

I now have 40 products available, mostly for the art room but also a few for the elementary classroom. I have also learned how to "bundle!" That was a big thing many friends had asked for, so I hope to continue bundling groups of products that work together - it offers a discounted price when you buy multiple items. Here is my Art Media and Vocabulary Bundle with a new addition: collage.

One new product I am excited about offering is my Mystery Drawings set! This is an activity I have used with grades K-5 for years - the students draw along with me without knowing what the finished drawing will be - such a great listening exercise because no one wants to miss a clue! Really good for days like end of year when everyone is frazzled, or before the holidays, or even testing week when you need to have a quiet room, because everyone stays engaged and relatively hushed. It includes my Later Gators, a ship, a slice of pie, an owl, and a castle ( but remember, don't tell :) )

Also available now are the illustrations and mural/bulletin board plan I created for our school's 7 Mindsets program last year - I took the words off so that they would work with any character ed program, just fill in your own vocab. These pics show how they look with the words filled in.

Just fill in your own words...

Here's a cute set for a writing teacher - "Write and Color set for Fall" - inspires creative writing. Please share with your LA teachers! 

Lots more new stuff and new bundles - please stop by from June 30- July 3 for 15% off everything!
Thanks everybody - continued summer bliss to you all!
