I can’t believe it is August already.  Time to get ready for back to school!!!

Teachers Pay Teachers ❤ Back to School is going on now!  EVERYTHING in my store is 20% off and with the promo code you can save 28%!


I loved how this letter I received from TpT the other day started.

“Dear Teacher,

We are in awe of you. For all that you give. And for all that you do. We think you’re outstanding, and we want you to love your back to school season just as much as we love you!”

⭐ All my Fluency Packets are on sale.  Each one includes 35 fluency passages and 3 days worth of activities/lesson plans to accompany them!  They provide reading intervention including fluency and comprehension for the entire year!

⭐ All my BUNDLES are also on sale!    So you could have reading intervention including fluency and comprehension for the entire year, for multiple grade levels!  This would allow you to differentiate for your classroom, or if you work with multiple grade levels, the bundles are perfect.  And on sale.  Right now.  Did I mention that?

Additionally, everything else in my store including

Alphabet and Phonics

Behavior & Social Skills

Fluency Sets



Sight Words


I hope you can find exactly what you need and I hope you really do LOVE back to school.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

(Jeremiah 29:11)

A School Time Rap and a Fresh Facebook Page!

I recently created a Facebook page to share teaching resources and ideas.  It will follow a similar format with links to new products and freebies in my store as well as teaching ideas and sprinkled with love.  It is called “Some Divine Intervention” (clever, eh?) and here is the link if you’d like to check it out!


I would love you to like it and I really appreciate your comments!

And I also wanted to share this music rap video created by a group of students from the elementary school I teach at (with help from some parents and a teacher!)  It is so cool.

I just love it.
