Giving Attention to a Child Who's Hard to Get Through to.

Have  you ever had a child that was a tough cookie to break? I sure have! 

Today I'm sharing a post from my friend Mrs. Sykes. I think you'll like reading it too.

I'd love to hear what you thought of this or even better yet. . . let her know how you feel about it.

2 For Tuesday! More DEALS!

It's Tuesday again! And here's your half off items for today. These two are from my top 10 sellers.  

Cause and Effect is hard for firsties and 2nd graders to grasp. Practicing with these will help them see what it truly means.

Words in Context helps your child to see an unfamiliar word, read the rest of the info about it, and pick the best meaning for that word. This really helps to strengthen their vocabulary!

If you want to join others in sharing a 2 For Tuesday, just go to Chalk One Up for the Teacher and you too can add your stuff!
Don't forget to go to TPT and type in #2forTuesday in the search bar to find other products that are half off today. And come back next Tuesday to find more deals!

Locker Fairies


At our school we have something called Locker Fairies. Locker Fairies leave things in lockers every once in a while to only a few children. It's always a surprise and it's usually something that child really needs. We (yes, the teachers or other adults at our school are the Locker Fairies, but shhhhhhh! don't tell anyone!) put things like books (if they say they don't have many books in their homes), school supplies, fun things, socks, coats, and even P.J's. We listen to what the students are saying and if we notice a child is in need of something, one of us will take care of it. We also stick one of these attached signs on the items, so they know where the stuff comes from.  These tags are free and you can grab them in my store. Just be sure to leave me some lovin so I know if you liked them or not!



There are times when those who don't get a surprise say they want something from the Locker Fairy and we just say, that WE want the Locker Fairy to visit us too! 


It has been such a heart warming thing to share with our students that I thought you too might want to do this with your students. Please grab the Locker Fairy sign here.

2 for Tuesday

Welcome Back! It's 2 For Tuesday again!

Today I'm offering two of my favorites that I like to play with kids. 


Kids love to play Vowel Teams Sweep. It's a game where the kids have to read the two words on the card. (Those two words have the same vowel team on them.) If they can read the card they get to keep it. There are some special cards that tell them to trade with someone, grab some more cards, or lose their cards. That makes it more fun to play!



Nonsense Word Parts and Mix & Match is a great way to practice the sounds that can be found in many words. Nonsense Words is an initial consonant that connects with a vowel and final consonant.  Mix & Match uses blends to match with a vowel and final consonant. 





If you want to find these specials and many others, all you have to do, is type #2forTuesday in the search bar of TPT. But you can only do this on Tuesdays. I hope you find some great things.
