Trick and Treat for Teachers

Are you ready for a Trick and Treat? 



I have teamed up with my Freebielicious friends to share some teaching tricks and special free treats for you!  

Teaching Trick/ Tip

Do your students ever forget to bring their backpacks to school? Sometimes we have many papers to send home and a student might not have a backpack on that day. It's very difficult for little kids to carry papers during dismissal. Students will drop their papers on the floor a few times while walking down the hallway. A very simple trick is to keep a box of those large plastic baggies in the classroom. You will simply place the student's papers and books in the baggie. Don't forget to add a label with the student's name, in case he drops that too :)


Teacher Treat (Freebie)

Here's a free Halloween reader. It will help take the students' fears away about certain little personalities that are part of Halloween stories, pictures, themes, etc.




Hop along to A Teeny Tiny Teacher and follow our Trick & Treat blog hop!

Free Halloween Hat

Here's a free Halloween hat that can be used in October. It can be used as a fun center and students can wear them at your Halloween party. What I really like about it is that you can incorporate a mini-math lesson about symmetry and patterns. For that, the students would read and label the ABC pattern for the pictures that are lined up at the bottom of the hat. Students can also practice symmetry by using the same colors on those little polka dots that appear on the wings.

If you would like the "Name" word in Spanish, you can get that Spanish printable here :)

Since the Freebielicious girls are such good friends, we designed our very own set of Classroom Faces t-shirts. What do you think?

About Classroom Faces

Creating a class set of t-shirts featuring your students drawings is easy. Each child just needs to create a simple drawing. To create t-shirts with one-color ink on a solid colored t-shirt (like ours) each child needs to draw their picture using a fine point black marker. The ClassroomFaces website has downloadable templates that you can use to guide your students. Full-color illustrations on a plain white t-shirt are also possible. Look how cute these t-shirts are!

Apple Clip Art

I recently posted these apple graphics for your teaching resources. I think that I had a little too much fun with this kit.

Apple Products Clip Art

I want to start with this set because that candy apple looks soooo yummy! These graphics represent products that are made with apples. It includes an apple pie, a candy apple, apple juice, apple cider and two apple sauce graphics.


The Life Cycle of an Apple

This set will help you make resources to teach the life cycle of an apple. It includes an apple seeds packet, a seed in the ground, seedling, buds on a branch, flowers on a branch, single flower, a regular tree, a tree with blossoms and an apple tree.

These are just a few different apples that you might find useful.
