It's August! That means it's the Back to School Season!

 Teachers are filling up their carts with school supplies, begging their admin to let them get back into their classrooms, and wishing that there was another month between July and August.

But, it also means it's time for the TeachersPayTeachers Back to School Sale! 

Thank you Star Spangled Planner for the CUTE button! 

I'm of course joining in on the fun with putting my entire store on sale for 20% off. 

Use the PROMO CODE: BTS15 and save an addition 10% off! That's a total savings of 28% off your entire purchase! Whoop! Whoop! 

For shopaholics like me that basically means...

No more spending hours making those gorgeous charts! Make these once, laminate, and use them again and again. Their interactive as well, so students are held accountable for their learning!

Prefix Word Study

What do you do when pictures and context clues aren't enough to help a child understand the meaning of a word? 

I had to tackle this very problem in my 3rd grade classroom this year. The majority of my students were proficient readers. They could sound out words that did not know rather well...even those tricky multi-syllabic words that littered our new third grade rigorous text. 

I noticed that most of my students relied too heavily on context clues and pictures to help them understand the meaning of the new words they came across. They'd make their primary teachers proud! But our problem was most of our "BIG" third grade text lacked pictures and the context clues weren't always enough. We needed a different strategy and fast! Help!
