  There's just something about April in a classroom that is the 
official kickoff to the "Mondays" countdown to summer break!  
Can you even relate though? Ha! 
This week, my district has been on Spring Break, and like most TPT Teacher Authors, I have been working like a soldier every day to update some of my current resources!            
 I've also been creating some new FOLLOWER FREEBIES!  
With Teacher Appreciation Week  just around the corner, chances are, you will need some Thank You cards.  Or maybe you might want to jot a note to your homeroom parent(s) and let them know how much you have appreciated them during the school year.  Or... maybe even you are that teacher that is already thinking of great end of the year gifts for your students and maybe you want to attach a personal note with it.  Whatever the case, I feel certain that you are going to LOVE my
    (So... if you do, PLEASE leave me a little comment or two and let me     
          know what you think.  Honestly, feedback is what fuels teacher authors, so keep them coming!
This free resource will allow you to create your own personalized stationery regardless of gender, grade, or subject you teach! There are a variety of ways you can use this resource if you find yourself in dire straits and need a Hallmark or American Greetings card, but discover that teachers are like glue...stuck at school and unable to leave the campus!

Some ideas might include:
  • Teacher Appreciation Week Thank You Cards
  • Birthday Cards
  • Boss' Day
  • Secretary's Day
  • Get Well Card
  • Invitations for Classroom Events (Class Parties, Field Day, Muffins with Mom, Donuts with Dad, Honor Roll Assemblies, etc.)
  • Generic Cards
  • Homeroom Mom Thank You Cards
  • Faculty Meeting Notepads
Seriously....the list is endless!  A simple set of DIY instructions is also included in the download, along with some ideas to expand your creativity! Take a look to see what other teachers have to say!  So please enjoy this "Thank You" from me!

If you have coincidentally stumbled across my blog, I invite you to visit my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.  I LOVE giving special treats to my teacher supporters, so please just click my little green star and become a follower too! the saying goes, "It's better to give than to receive", so I  want to share two FREE literacy graphic organizers with you!

If you have not browsed through some of my newer literacy, math, or writing resources, I encourage you to take a look at them.  They require little to no prep and make wonderful additions to your Daily 5 centers, 

or to use with your favorite Kagan Structures.  

             I also wanted to take minute to introduce a colleague of mine, Jamie Knefley, from Teaching Tidbits and More with Jamie!  Jamie and I have partnered together to create Simply Southern Science!  

We are so excited that we have finally launched our first resource,
Density:  A Unit on Sinking and Floating

We both agreed that science curriculum resources in elementary schools were scarce; therefore, we decided to collaborate and create some science units that include STEM Challenges and other engaging activities.  We are currently working on our second resource, The Human Body Systems!  Be on the lookout as we will be offering some giveaways once it is available!  To make sure you do not miss out on this opportunity to participate, we encourage you to follow us on our other social media sites!

So, that's pretty much how I have spent my Spring Break, 
what exciting things did you do on your Spring Break?

Also, if you are planning on going to the TPT Conference in Orlando
please reply and let me know!  I would LOVE meet you in person! 


  1. I love your monogrammed stationary. It is really cute and you did a great job at designing it. I can't wait to the release of our next unit, The Human body! Keep up the good work on your blog!
