Teacher Appreciation Sale

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Since this week is all about celebrating teachers, Teachers Pay Teachers is having a sale!


I've got a tradition here on Preschool Ponderings, for every TPT Sale I share my personal wish list (what I'll be buying during the sale), along with a couple of great resources from my store that you can pick up at a discounted price.  

Today I'm linking up with Lisa at Pawsitively Teaching to connect you to even more amazing resources created by teachers for teachers.  So first, I'll share the best seller from my TPT store, a resource from my store that you can snag for just $1, and then I'll share my wish list so you can check out those great items too.  


My Best Seller: Social Emotional activities are hard to find! My Emotions and Feelings Bundle has 6 activities that help children explore feelings, and practice appropriate means of expressing their emotions.  It includes vocabulary cards, question and answer cards, mats that ask children "can you make this face?"scenario sorting, and a bunting that children can help design to hang in the classroom.  During the sale, you can pick up this bundle for $4.80 (plus an extra 10% off when you enter the promo code THANKYOU)!


$1.00 Deal:  During the sale my Infant/Toddler Portfolio Dividers and my Preschool Portfolio Dividers are only $1! These dividers are the perfect companions to my Preschool and Infant/Toddler Portfolio packs.  

Now, here's what's on my wish list; 



 I think mystery pictures are such a cute idea, but I hadn't been able to find any that were appropriate for preschoolers, until now! This Mystery Picture Bundle is from Mrs. Thompson's Treasures, and children look for certain letters or numbers and use different colored dot markers to mark them in order to create a picture.  This would be such a fun way for preschoolers to practice letter and number recognition. They would love to figure out what the final picture is!


Parents are always asking what activities they can do to help their child learn letters, this Learning Letters set from Learning and Teaching with Preschoolers would be something that I could easily send home with families.  There 130 pages of letter practice in this $8 set, which is a great value!


I love Play to Learn Preschool's dramatic play printables, and the newest Flower Shop set is so much fun.  Setting up a flower shop in the classroom would be a great way to welcome spring, and would lead into some serious gardening and science exploration.

 

I've saved the best for last! I learned about Tea and Coffee's cute shop on Instagram, one of the teachers I follow shared a picture of the adorable calendar magnets she had ordered and I fell in love! These Custom Square Magnets would be the perfect way to set up a classroom calendar (easy to move around each month and they don't take up a ton of space).  Tea and Coffee also offers holiday magnets so that you can include all of the special days that you would usually identify on your calendar.  I know I could make these myself but I'm not sure I could do it this well, and there are just times when it's worth it to spend the money - which is easier for me to do when I know I'm supporting another teacher. 

Be sure to check out some of these other amazing products from talented teachers and then go do some shopping, you deserve it (and it's on SALE)! A huge thanks to Pawsitively Teaching for hosting Teacher Appreciation week festivities!
