This is a little fun post today and you have nothing to learn from it - haha! What it lacks in content, it makes up for in the 'cute' factor!
Back story: I have a large class of first graders this year, with many on IEPs. There is a huge range of ability and many boys with diagnosed conditions. All year I feel like we take one step forward and two steps back. We are nowhere near where we should be in terms of curriculum and I feel like it takes most of the morning to 'warm-up' their brains. My timetable and planners have changed considerably during the course of the year. I have not lowered my expectations of my little sweetpeas, but have had to change my approach to their learning. Many still struggle to work with any degree of independence, so some months ago, I introduced 'morning work', which is not something I would typically have done.
The students have a set routine every morning which deals with house-keeping issues and then they go straight to morning work. As most of you know this typically includes some type of challenge or review of skills which students should be able to do independently. This works to some degree, but I am always on the look out for something different to change it up. I see this period as the students 'brain warm-up' time, as it takes so long to engage and motivate them. Our weekly timetable must include a standalone lesson on 'Thinking Skills' - resources and ideas can be hard to find!! So...I needed to 'kill two birds with one stone' - what an awful saying.....
In my quest for something that delivered both needs, I came across this wonderful blog: First Grade Wow. This blog is run by Nancy Vandenberg and I just love her ideas!
|Just click on the pic to read about this resource.|
These are some of the results! Aren't they just adorable?!
Included are 12 elements - 232 images in total.
Perhaps you are a new TpT seller just starting out and looking for some basic elements? A quick way to have just what you need at your fingertips, as you begin to create those first few products.
Maybe you are a seasoned seller who would love to have everything you might need in one folder, as a 'go to' pack?
Whichever you are, hopefully you will find just what you need in this mega bundle.
I have tried to include elements which would work with any product, e.g. polka dot and chevron papers.
Here's what you get:
Paper Pack 1: Polka Dot; Chevron; Check/Plaid (3 packs)
Paper Pack 2: Cover Pages - Sticks; More Scribbles ( 2 packs)
Frames: 3 styles - Glitter; Black; Color (3 packs)
Headers: Doodle (includes JPG, PNG and filled centers) (1 pack)
Labels: Chalkboard Circles (1 pack)
Tags: Colored Tags (1 pack)

All papers are in 'letter' size to better suit your projects.
I have included a detailed preview of everything you would receive in this pack - the image thumbs reflect this also. Please check these carefully to decide if the elements suit your needs.
The total cost of the individual products is $37.50, but can be yours for $8.00! Click the pic below to check out exactly what's included.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
