Teacher Appreciate Sale and a New Blog Title!

I don't know about you, but to me this such an exciting time for teachers!  Our PTO does all sorts of giveaways and luncheons and little treats for us during Teacher Appreciation Week!  We are truly blessed to have the jobs we do to be able to serve our wonderful communities.  Speaking of which, many of you are already aware, but Teachers Pay Teachers is having a HUGE sale today, tomorrow, and Tuesday!  I'm offering 20% off all of my products, and TpT is offering another 10% off as well!  It's a SPECIAL treat!  I'm excited to download some things I've had my eyes on for a while.  :)

Thanks to Erica for creating this awesome banner for the sale!

Now I'm going to unveil something I've been working on, and I finally finished it this morning at 3 a.m.  Ah, the life of a teacher. :P  I know that is NOT normal, but sometimes I just get the energy to get stuff done!  I've started a Word Work section for my store.  With moving down to 1st grade next year, I'm ALREADY thinking about how I want to do things next year.  And being a new mommy, I want to keep things simple and easy!  So in honor of this huge project, I have listed my FIRST Word Work packet for FREE on TpT!  That's right, folks.  Short a Word Work.  It's 47-pages of 10 activities for a short a study.  The activities will stay the same each week, fostering independence and confidence so that YOU as a teacher can worry about other things (working with small groups, individuals, teaching lessons, assessing, whatever it is you need to do!).  I've already uploaded the Short i Word Work and will keep on adding others throughout the next several months.  Here's a preview!

One more thought for the night...since I'm moving to first grade next year, I have decided to go with a new name for my blog.  You may have noticed the address is different.  So that I don't jinx myself again, I'm changing it to "Permanently Primary"!!!! :D  Because even if I get moved again (which I'm hoping, praying, and crossing my fingers and toes that I don't!), I will only be teaching a primary grade because of my certification.  I figure I can't go wrong!  ;)  So the title of my blog and everything will be updated soon.  Don't freak out, it's still me!  :)

Have a great week and I hope you're all able to stock up on some fun stuff! :)

I will be back with pictures from our World's Fair and some decorating projects I've been working on for my classroom!  I didn't want to make this post really long and random, so I will post again in a few days!  :)


  1. Preview looks great, however I am not able to download it from TPT. Any reason why?


  2. You are welcome! Happy sales to you!

  3. Rachel - I tried re-uploading the file again tonight. I know others are having some of the same issues with downloading some of the free products off of Teachers Pay Teachers. Please try again and let me know if it still isn't working and I will continue to see what I can do. Thanks for letting me know!
