I have something so so so fun to share with you all today! So fun, in fact, that I may have squealed with joy when mine arrived in the mail. Meet....Kindergarten Crate! This awesome subscription box service hooks up teachers every month with a crate full of FUN! Are you ready to see the amazing items in mine this month?!
|Each crate includes a Teacher Treat and this one was so so so good. These are gourmet dark chocolate pretzel balls. I added a handful to my cup of Halo Top last night. Such a perfect sweet treat and dark chocolate is my fave indulgence.|
|This is a great peppermint essential oil spray from The Blissful Teacher. I looked up their products and they have the cutest line of essential oils made just for teachers with the cutest names. This one is "Recess Duty Relaxation."|
|Each kit has a theme and this month's is Family Traditions. This is a writing prompt sheet for kids with writing lines and a picture space and are you ready for the best part?? COPIES ALREADY MADE!|
|This is a cute monthly magnetic calendar and a treasure chest themed sticker reward chart. I will be using both of these things this week.|
|I am so pumped for this read aloud, "Shante Keys and The New Year's Peas." I've read this book before from the library and am excited to own it now and add it to my classroom library. It's the perfect read for teaching about family traditions.|
The remaining two items are my most favorite, though! First up, a literacy center. Yep, the whole center. This comes with a plush dice with pockets on the sides (I've never seen one of these before!) and a word list of cards to put in the dice. The kids roll the dice, then choose a card that rhymes with the word they rolled. We can kick it up and make it a memory match game too. How fun is that?! I now have a center ready for a parent volunteer to run on Wednesday. Done and done.
We've been really fortunate this year with not many inside recess days but the weather is getting cooler and make no mistake, they. are. coming. I have a few games and puzzles but definitely need a few more. This is a world map puzzle in a mini bag so clean up is a breeze. First rainy day and this bad boy is coming out.
Being a happy teacher is important. And make no mistake, these teacher tools are making me an even happier teacher! If you're interested, use code SUNDAY to get 10% off your first order! Click HERE to order! And Pssst! Want an exclusive preview of next month's box?! The theme is SNOW DAY STEAM!
Happy Teaching! Savor Your Sparkle,
