Free For All Friday

Friday, 1 May 2020

It’s Fri-Yay people!  These days, saying that doesn’t feel as exciting as it used to, but we are still going to get pumped—even if we are working from home and miss our school babies like crazy! I’ve officially survived my first week as a blogger and feel like I’ve gotten to know some of you a little better!  It has been a great launch and I hope you have learned a little about me and I’ve shared some ideas that you will be able to use in your own classroom (and distance learning classrooms!).  It’s amazing to connect with other teachers and educators from all over and I’m excited about some collaboration projects I have in mind for the future!

But anyway, we all love a good deal and we definitely love a good FREEBIE!  So, today I am sharing some of my most favorite TPT freebies with you.  These are files that I have downloaded and continue to use from year to year.  Sometimes I add my own twist or change things up, but these all have some awesome content that I love using in my classroom! 

1)   Six Weeks Kindergarten Send Home Plans by The Kinder Life totally saved me on Distance Learning plans.  I was able to slap on some standards, add my own vocabulary words and numbers, and send it as work for them to do at home.  The kids have LOVED it!  Fun, engaging, and minimal work for me.
2)   2019-2021 Editable Calendar by Sarah Kirby—I use this calendar every year as she often updates it.  You can edit right in the document to do a snack calendar, events, monthly programs, or whatever your need may be.  The calendars are colorful and cutesy!  So easy to use!
3)   Name Activity Editable by Khrys Greco—This is great, especially for the beginning of the year.  It’s totally free and you just have to type in the student’s name.  It's an awesome resource!
4)   Free Editable Homework Folder Covers by Kinder Inspiration—I LOVE these and use them every year.  You can totally personalize this file, so I often change my fonts and wording.  I slide it in a plastic sheet protector and it is the first thing that goes on the prongs of their homework/reading folder that goes home daily.  It lasts all year, and if the folder gets lost, it makes it easy to be returned to my classroom.
5)   Crayon Hat by Crayola Queen—During the first few weeks of school, we do one color each week.  On Friday, we celebrate that color by wearing that color clothing and hat!  So, I use this printable and copy it onto the coordinating color cardstock I need for that week!  It makes an awesome hat and is also great to use with a costume, which I have done as well!

I hope these freebies are of some use to you in your classroom—whether it is now while we are all doing distance learning, or when we get back in the fall.  I did try to select freebies that weren’t holiday themed that you might want to download and start using right away.  If you think a download is awesome, please leave them a review!  I have just started loading some of my own things to TPT and it means more than you will ever know to get a positive review and some excellent feedback!
