Back to School Sale

Hi all

A little while ago I dipped my toe into the waters of a new resource website. TES is  UK based website that supports Times Educational Supplement, a well-known and respected publication for the teaching profession. The site is still in its early stages and is not without its teething problems, but the TES team work hard to iron out any glitches, and I have to say that all seems to be well.

TES is available worldwide with a huge range of resources available for the US market as well as other countries around the world. Whilst my preferred site is still TPT, it's always good to have other outlets.

Between 4th and 6th September TES is hosting a site-wide sale. All of the resources that I have uploaded so far are included in the sale at 25% off. Why not take a few moments to check out what is available and let me know what you think. My page can be found at

Tradition takes flight in Rice & Rocks, a picture book celebrating culture and diversity.

Giovanni's friends are coming over for Sunday dinner, and his grandmother is serving rice and beans. Giovanni is embarrassed he does not like 'rice and rocks' and worries his friends will think the traditional Jamaican dish is weird. But his favorite Auntie comes to the rescue. She and Giovanni's pet parrot, Jasper, take him on a magical journey across the globe, visiting places where people eat rice and rocks. This exciting story celebrates the varied traditions of every culture while also highlighting the delicious similarities that bring us all together.

Open House Slideshow - Pirates

Open House Slideshow - Pirate Theme  Open House Slideshow - Pirate Theme  Open House Slideshow - Pirate Theme

There is no feeling quite like when your child starts school for the first time, or moves to a new class. Teachers arrange their classes in different ways and have different procedures for homework, class management, behaviour etc. There are lots of questions that parents want answering, and Open House is a great time to meet the new teacher and find out a little about what the new school year will bring for their child, They also want to know how they can help their child and how they can help the teacher.

This slideshow can be adapted to include all the information you need to pass on to your parents, from classroom expectations to grading policies, to what you will be teaching across the year. From field trips to special events. From Daily 5 to Math, Science and Writer's Workshop. From morning arrival to afternoon dismissal.

This slideshow can also be adapted to suit older students.

The slideshow has a cute pirate theme. Each slide can be edited to suit your schedule and activities, and put on a loop at Open House so that parents can get all the information they need at a glance.

14 slides, all with embedded fonts.

Also available: pink and green owls, zebras, kids, carnival, giraffes, cheerleaders, great outdoors, snake jungle, fall critter and sock hop

Common Core "I Can" Statements

Available for reading, writing and language for K-5

I also have a full range of Great Outdoors classroom d├ęcor items.

Presidential Election 2016 - Movie and Activity Pack

Presidential Election 2016 - Movie and Activity Pack  Presidential Election 2016 - Movie and Activity Pack  Presidential Election 2016 - Movie and Activity Pack

This pack provides lesson ideas and activities to help teach Grade 3-6 children about the Presidential Election system in the USA.

The pack includes a fully animated 7 minute 5 second movie which gives a background to the Presidential Election system in child-friendly language. It includes cool graphics and exciting music, sounds and animations that are sure to appeal to a younger audience.

The activities pack is 29 pages long and begins with a Cool Kids KWHL chart to brainstorm facts already known, things they want to know, and how they will go about finding out. Through teacher input and independent research, children then build up biographies of the candidates, and research the key issues they represent. Finally, they use books and websites to research information for their own presentation to the class on their chosen candidate.

The movie is in MP4 format. Please contact me if you would prefer it as a Powerpoint animated slideshow.

Happy shopping! And remember to leave me some feedback - I'd love to know what you think of my work.

New Resource - Shape and Colour

Hi all!
It's been a while, but I haven't been sitting on my hands. I can now reveal my latest project...

"Shape and Colour" was devise firstly as a tool for teaching vocabulary (basic colours and technical knowledge of 2D shapes). Aimed at all children from K to Grade 2 (Reception to Year 3), it aims to teach the properties of 2D shapes and increase the vocabulary bank by consolidating knowledge of colour words and introducing technical maths terms such as corner, edge, parallel etc.

The visual nature of the resource is great for pupils who are learning English and struggling to build up a vocabulary bank.

 The resource is 29 pages long with a series of fun activities that are designed to engage and interest all learners.
It is available in both UK and US English through my TPT store, TES shop US and TES shop UK at a very reasonable price. I do hope you enjoy!

I Love Amazon
