Happy Happy Teachers Appreciation Week! #thankateacher


Hello Teacher Appreciation Week! First of all, let me start off by saying, I hope this week you FEEL THE LOVE, for E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. you do on a daily basis!  No doubt, teachers are overworked, underpaid, and in many schools, under-appreciated.  This year, if anything, has been a very difficult year for many teachers... larger class sizes, teacher assistant cuts, no money for supplies and materials, no money for professional development conferences, higher expectations...from everything from documentation to dress code, for everything from behavior to interventions, transitions to the Common Core, closer readings, higher thinking, deeper understanding, more student collaboration, more teacher collaboration, more meaningful use of technology, teacher performance tied to student test scores...I could go on and on.  Despite all of this, you walk into your classroom day after day, with a smile on your face and a happy heart determined to make a difference in every single little life that sits in front of you from 9:15am-3:45pm.  Your devotion to these little minds, despite their home conditions and the political climate of education today, is commended, appreciated and totally noticed!  It's time you know how much you are appreciated, either through words of affirmation, teachers gifts or discounts and giveaways on Teachers Pay Teachers.  If you are a parent, this is the week to spoil your child's teacher...if you are principal, this is the week to stop telling everybody else how wonderful Mrs./Mr. {insert your name here} is and look this teacher in the eye and tell them to their face, WHY they are so wonderful.  Teachers are tired of school and team affirmation, most teachers only ever need to hear it directly from your mouth or a personalized hand-written note, how much they are appreciated!   If you are a teacher, I wish for you, a week drenched in showers of appreciation. I hope the coffee truck pulls up to your carpool loop and the announcement comes over the loud speaker that all teachers are to report to the loop to order a custom coffee.  I hope there's a back massage sign-up sheet in the office, I hope someone offers to take your recess duty one day, I hope donuts {this is for you, Abby Mullins} appear in the staff lounge and that the PTA puts on a Teacher Appreciation luncheon worthy of royalty!  I truly do wish this for every teacher in every school, everywhere! You totally deserve it!   For more ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week, click HERE.







Here's what I'm doing for you...several things! First, I'm putting everything in my TpT store on sale through Wednesday.  Today and tomorrow will be 20% off and Tuesday and Wednesday, TpT is adding an additional 10% off, so everything on those two days will be 30% with the code TAD13.  


This means, either start shopping now and checkout, or shop now and add everything to your wishlist or shopping cart, so you can check out in the next few days.  You'll definitely want to pick up some items that have been on your wishlist for a while, in addition to some new items like my Common Core Reading bundles for Literature and Informational Text Standards for ELA, K-2. 


Pick them up as a bundle or individually,

You might also be happy to know that my Reading Literature pack has been on the TpT Top 10 Best Seller list for the past 5 weeks and I'm tickled pink about that...I only have you to thank. 


Also, everything in my Two Peas in a Pod store is also 20% off today through Wednesday, too. So now would be a great time to pick up all the yearly bundle.  



I've also updated the Hello Fonts file...use this sale to pick up my Hello Fonts Commercial License.  Here's a preview of the 15 newest fonts added, as of today.  If you already own the license, just redownload it from your My Purchases button and find the 5.5.13 folder.  


I'd love to give away a free Hello Fonts Commercial License to 5 lucky teachers! Here's all you have to do...leave a comment below. Winners will be announced Tuesday night...that way if you aren't a winner, you still have time to pick it up at 30% off! 


Here's a few more goodies for teachers....from Chipotle...

I am loving all of the teachers out there who we are to be forever thankful for reaching out when all seemed to be lost. Your blog and all of your products are reaching out to those of us who are creatively challenged and they just make life easier in the classroom. Thank you from the bottom of my <3.

I would love to win your fonts! I have been on blogs all day reading all of the teacher appreciation posts, entering giveaways & filling my TPT cart. My school does very little to acknowledge us this week. It's wonderful to hear that many schools really celebrate teachers.
