Top 5 Freebies of the Week 5/31/2014

Wait… is it really going to be JUNE tomorrow? I’m pretty sure that’s not possible! Around here, school gets out mid to late June, but I bet a lot of you are already enjoying your summer vacation. 🙂 Even though the school year is winding down/over, it’s still a good idea to keep stocking up on fabulous freebies for next year.

Do you already know what grade you’ll be teaching? Comment below whether you’re staying the same or changing and how you feel about it.

I’m moving back to 1st grade after only 1 year in 2nd. I absolutely LOVED 2nd grade, but 1st grade definitely feels like home. I student taught in 1st for a year, and then taught it for 3 years, so this will technically be my 5th year in 1st. I’m excited, but NOT looking forward to moving all of my junk stuff. It should be interesting with a new baby and no air conditioning… keep an eye out for what I assume will be a hilarious post about it later this month. 😉

Before we get to the freebies, I managed to knock out TWO products this week! (Go me!)

The first is PERFECT for those of you still in school. It’s a fun and easy craftivity that’s perfect for the last few days of school when you’re wrapping things up. It also includes a beginning of the year craftivity as well. Click the picture below to check it out. 🙂
