NEW Back to School Products & FREEBIES

I have taken a LONG break from TpT (It's been at least two years since I consistently posted products). I needed that time to relax and get re-inspired. Lately, I've been on a kick with creating new resources. And it feels good! I think that's partly because I am looking at TpT as a hobby nowadays and not a second job...which killed the fun of it for me in the past. I'm not sure if other TpTers can relate, but I'm really happy with my balance now.

In May, I also found out I was going to be changing grade levels. I'll be teaching 8th grade ELA this year! I'm excited for the change, and I think it's helped reinvigorate me. And I have to thank all the TpT sellers I've been buying an insane amount of 8th grade ELA resources from. You've been lifesavers!

So, that leads me to this post....I wanted to share some of the new back to school resources I've created this well as a couple of FREEBIES at the end! 

P.S. I'm looking forward to showing you a glimpse of my new middle school classroom soon! I can't get into my classroom until next week. Yes, I have 5 days to unpack 49 boxes and set my whole classroom up! Wish me luck, people!!!

If you're looking for a way to impress your students' parents at Open House, check out these "Back to School Editable PowerPoints". There are currently three themes in my store (though I may add more): bee theme, owl theme, and emoji theme

I love technology. My students love technology. Why not have a technology themed classroom? It makes sense! I have done a tech. themed classroom in the past, but I'm looking forward to including emoji themed resources in my decor this year! That's what inspired my "Editable Emoji Labels" and Emoji Editable Open House PowerPoint.

I'm really excited abut my Google Slides Editable Newsletters. They are a great way to communicate with your students'parents, and your changes automatically appear! They also make it easy for a team of teachers to collaborate on one newsletter. There are currently three versions in my store: burlap and plaid, burlap and stripes, and floral and yellow.

I made these Google Chromebook Shortcuts Posters and student reminder sheets for my own classroom. They provide quick shortcuts to Chromebook functions-perfect for the Google classroom.

I also wanted to create some Growth Mindset Coloring Sheets for older kids, now that I will be teaching at a middle school.

These aren't exactly "Back to School" related, but I recently created two new social studies interactive notebooks that I wanted to show you....One is a 5 Major Religion Interactive Notebook and one is an Ancient Egypt Interactive Notebook. I started these eons ago and finally had time (and motivation) to finish them!


And now, the moment you have all been waiting for-FREEBIES! I added a Classroom Birthday List and Parent-Teacher Conference Sheet to my store. They're perfect for the beginning of the year. Enjoy!

I hope you have a great school year! :)
