Back to School Blowout

It’s the final countdown . . .in just TWO short days our new groups of kiddos will be arriving.

So you know what that means . . . we will both be up at school all day today and tomorrow putting the finishing touches on everything!!!!!

If you are looking for some new materials to use this year make sure you check out all the great sales in some of your favorite TpT shops this weekend. 


We have teamed up with TpT for the annual Back To School SALE again this year. 

Every item in our TpT store will be 20% off. 

Make sure you enter the promo code BTS12 when you check out to receive additional savings.  This is as big as it gets friends . . . so stock up on anything you think you might use this coming school year!!!

Make sure you check out these tabs on our blog for links to all of our thematic math & literacy centers as well as our math and reading resources.


We would also like to pass along a few {free} fun resources that we will be using at the beginning of the year.

If you are looking for an 11x17 poster to have each student decorate when they are featured as your STAR STUDENT or TOP BANANA here you go.

We will be kicking off the new school year with our Color Day Fun unit.  It is always one of our favorite units of the year.  It incorporates lots of great literature, creative writing and math activities while reviewing basic Kindergarten/1st grade skills and standards.


Look for several colorful posts next week.



  1. Thanks so much for the freebies. I bought your color unit last was awesome! Hoping that both of you have a wonderful year! I will be looking for other great units and activities from you. Hoping that many of them align with the common core!

  2. Awesome posters! By chance is this done in Spanish? If not, is this something that can be done? I would not mind getting it translated and sending it to you!
