I know you get to school early or stay late on a regular basis. Or both.
I know you will spend nights lying in bed wishing there were something more you could do for that one kid.
I know you bring home a very full bag and feel at least a little guilty if you let it sit all night while you actually spend time with your family.
I know you will feel crushing defeat when your kids don’t get it, or a lesson falls apart- and yet, come back and try again the next day.
I know how the littlest moments of triumph make your day or your week.
I know a significant amount of your paychecks through the year will go towards something for your class.
I know you spend most of your TV time catching up on grading or cutting out laminated stuff.
I know you want to not worry about the tests, but you can’t help it.
I know you will spend at least part of your summer “off” scouring Pinterest for ways to make your classroom better next year, and then many unpaid hours actually making it happen.
I truly, truly get it.
As a teacher, you probably spend so much of your time doing things for the kids- but I’m teaming up with some other bloggers to do something nice for YOU.
I’m sending one lucky teacher a thank you “grab box” full of surprise goodies to help you make it to the end of the school year!
I’m including a flash drive of some of my favorite TpT resources, like my Reach for the Stars Fluency Folder, May Text Detectives- Find the Text Evidence for 2nd grade and 3rd grade, and Nonsense Word Context Clues.
You’ll even get a hard copy of Summer Fun! A Multisyllabic Word Game for Prefixes- ready for your students to play!
There’s more! I’ll send the winner a $25 gift certificate to TpT right away so you get to take advantage of the TeachersPayTeachers sale on Tuesday, May 5 and Wednesday, May 6!
Finally, I’ll fill the box with some of my favorite things that I know other teachers will LOVE. I’m keeping them mostly a surprise, but I’ll share a few hints (and you might catch a few more on Instagram, too!)
Getting excited yet? You can enter to win my grab box in the Rafflecopter below. (Sorry, I can only ship this one within the U.S. and Canada!)
