This is the treasure box my husband made me, but it doesn't have to be fancy, it can be a Rubbermaid container even! One summer school I had so many reward items donated, we had five additional plastic treasure boxes. If you visit my blog, you can download a letter to give to parents, family and friends to help you fill your treasure box at no cost to you. Perfect for the upcoming holiday season when everyone is cleaning their home and donating things!
Are you looking for a reader’s theater for your class or a short play to present to the school? This script gives you exactly what you need to do this, while teaching students about holidays around the world through the theme of how light is used in these celebrations. Download the script for the play – Light Up the World with Celebrations, as well as printable props, from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
It's a quick, easy and educationally fun activity that your kids will enjoy doing, and you'll hopefully get a few minutes of quiet time, while they're happily focused.

I am a big believer in using songs to help my students cement key concepts in school. As an ELA/Reading teacher in a school with a huge number of ELL students, it's even more important. I don't like to lecture or have them recite boring rules (who does?!), so we sing as much as possible.
I found this lovely gem floating around on Pinterest. I love to make copies for my kids to keep in their Skills (ELA) Journals, so I put this together. If you click on the image above, you can grab a copy to use in your classroom!
You can start by collecting crayons this August when the stores have them on sale for 5 cents. Ask your friends, family, a church group, a neighborhood association, a woman's club, the people you know are endless and this is a very easy project for a group. Then, next thing you know, you'll be getting pencils, notebook paper, markets, etc.
