Resources to Use 'On The Fly!'

I know it has been a LOOOOOOONG time since I last blogged (hanging head in shame) and I have a TON of pictures to blog about, but I am having too much fun enjoying summer with my two adventurous boys!
We also just finished a big house renovation project (we were living in only 2 rooms since April!) and are settling back into a 'normal' state.  Most of everything is unpacked and it's not a game of 'where could I have stashed that?' each time I need something!

I am here today to tell you about a promotion I am participating in on Sunday July 31st.

As much as we all love preparing centers and engaging lessons for our students, there are times we need something 'fast' or 'ready to go.'  I never really appreciated this until I became a mom and would be woken up at 2am to a fever or stomach bug calling from the next room that prevented me from going into school the next day.

So 30+ teacher authors and I have teamed up to bring you 'on the fly' resources that will be discounted for ONE DAY ONLY!

There are many different items to choose from for varying grade levels.  Maybe you need a morning work pack, a print 'n go, sub folder activity, printables pack or 'ready to go' center?  
The items in the list do not require a lot of teacher prep or materials!

You can find all the discounted deals by clicking HERE:

BUT that's not all!
We are also giving away Teachers Pay Teachers gift cards!
And not just one....FOUR $50 gift cards to TpT!!!
The entry window is only open until 6am EST 8/1, so don't delay entering!  
(Scroll to the end of this post for details on how to enter!)

They will be awarded in time to use for the TPT Site-Wide Back to School Sale that will run August 1st and 2nd!
My entire store will be 20% off and then an additional 10% will be taken off at checkout if you enter promo code: BESTYEAR

Here's a bit about my 'on the fly' resource:

I have been using these 'flip books' in my classroom for a few years now.
I use them mainly as a 'make a book' center activity, but I have also used them for morning work, early finisher activity and in my small remediation groups.

Just download, print, copy!
PERFECT to have ready for a sub folder too!

I have even taught my kids how to use a mini stapler and it is a completely independent center!
The best part...they are reading '4 pages' BUT it only uses one piece of paper!

Each letter has a page like this:
('X' has 2 pages- one for initial sound and one for ending sound)

You can even copy the 'dotted line page' onto the back for additional letter writing practice and/or a space for them to write their name.

Then they complete these steps:

The students are also practicing fluency by re-reading the same sentence four times (just changing the ending word each time).

I have my students keep their flip books in their book baggies in the beginning of the year when we are just learning how to read so they can feel confident reading independently!  We have also read them to our older reading buddies and they LOVE bringing them home to read to their families!

If you think this is something that would benefit your students, be sure to grab it today, 7/31, for only $5 (which is 50% off and even cheaper than waiting until the TpT Sale on 8/1 & 8/2)!

Are you ready to enter to win a $50 TpT Gift Card?
You have several chances to win if you enter all 4 of these rafflecopters!
Be sure to follow what the entry question asks you to do...if selected as a winner and you did not answer the question you will be disqualified!

Best of luck and wishing you a wonderful start to your new school year!
Be sure to check your email on August 1st to see if you are one of the four lucky winners!
Until next post,


  1. Everything about this post is amazing! How did you and the rest of the teachers become a part of the sale? I would LOVE to be a part of this on the next go around! Thanks a million!! Have a great school year ahead!

    1. Hi Lindsey-
      Thank you so much for your comment and I will pass it on to the others involved! I am a part of a product editing support group. Every few months we run a group promotion! We work together to organize, plan and execute the promotion! We also help each other out with products we create for Teachers Pay Teachers on a daily basis via a Facebook group that was created by the administrator. I was approached to be a part of this group a few years ago. At the time it is no longer accepting new members. There are many product support groups to join- check the forums- and Facebook groups- often people will post about groups they are forming in those places (sometimes referred to as 'tribes!')
      Hope that helps and I wish you the best of luck with the upcoming school year!
