Life Lately + TpT Cyber Sale



It's been a minute since I've been able to dedicate some time here and at my TpT shop - my apologies. As you can see we're officially in our third trimester with baby girl which has me between exhaustion and needing to pee every 10 minutes to bursts of energy and productiveness. Nevertheless, it's exciting to be within just a few months before we get to welcome and hold her for the first time.

Now that I'm home 100% and taking a necessary step back from the classroom, you can find me spending a little more time blogging over at my lifestyle blog Life at Red Oak. It's my own little space where I get to share about the other happenings in my life from preparing room for baby, navigating parenthood of a preschooler, sharing recipes and home design ideas, as well as the musings and inspirations that fill my life.

TpT Cyber Sale | Nov 30 - Dec 1

Teachers Pay Teachers will be hosting their annual Cyber Sale and my shop will be participating! You'll be able to receive 20% off everything! I love sales like these because it's a wonderful way to grab amazing resources from pretty amazing teachers that will be sure to engage all the way through winter break!

Interested in seeing what's on sale coming up? Let's take a peek!

Covid-19 Resources

One of my most popular resources this year has been this Covid-19 posters and activities packet. It's everything you'll need in one download - from posters that you can use as a social story or display in your classroom as you review procedures year-round to cut and paste activities that break down safe and unsafe choices while learning on campus. I've personally loved using this with my own students and found it to be a great visual to use while teaching hygiene and hand washing practices.

Winter Break Activity Packet

Having a variety of activities ready to go for breaks have been a huge time saver and something parents always appreciate. I also have a Fall Break Packet and working on a Spring and Summer break packet to complete this bundle.

Guided Reading Bundles

When I taught second grade I utilized guided reading every day as a part of my literacy block. While I worked with reading groups students would have their reading centers. In order to make that time the most useful I knew I had to be organized and these lesson plan templates as well as activities have been a time saver and helped me really engage in the books and reading skills being taught.

Letter Houses | Phonics Activity

I was inspired by my French colleagues who utilize a similar activity for their phonics instruction and I just HAD to have it for mine in English. These letter houses are great as stand-alone activities, review, or even placed in centers. You can read about how I used them here.

NYE Craft & Goal Setting

Another great way to get kids thinking about goals in the new year! This activity was always a fun way to get kids back into the swing of writing upon returning after winter break. It also helped them set realistic goals...and who doesn't like a good craft?

There's still SO much to choose from - this is just a peek! Be sure to stock up before the rush of the holidays and grab the resources that will help you take your instruction to the next level!
