What’s in Your Cart? Back to School 2015 Linky Party

The last day and I start work tomorrow. I’m enthusiastic to meet the new kids and see the others, although I’m pretty sure next week will be a hectic one – kids crying, parents worried that their kids won’t stop crying, no fixed routines…

Jenna Rayburn from is hosting a fun linky party, so I’m enjoying this last day by participating in it.

TpT has a site-wide sale where you can use a promo code (BTS15) on top of each sellers individual sale (mine will be 20% off!) for a total of up to 28% off. This sale will happen next Monday and Tuesday (August 3-4).

I’m going to share three of my items that I’d recommend purchasing from my own store and other three items I’m going to purchase.

Here’s what you might find useful from my store:

1. Class Decor and Morning Circle Charts and Flashcards Bundle {kindergarten} (click on the images for the links)

It includes:
• Alphabet mini-posters with animals;
• Class helpers / jobs flashcards: pencil monitor, line leader, lunch monitor, paper passer, plant helper, calendar helper, morning circle helper, messenger, teacher’s helper, and some empty labels;
• Class rules posters (1 rule per A5): we walk nicely, we clean up after ourselves, we share, we help our friends feel better, we play nicely with our friends, we raise our hands before speaking, we keep our hands and feet to ourselves, we listen to the teacher, and an empty frame + black and white versions, to use as colouring pages or mini-books;
• Door sign: “Welcome to our class!”;
• Morning circle calendar with suggestive labels for each month;
• Days of the week flashcards;

• Sticker charts;
• “Who is here today?” chart and name tags;
• Transitions and attention grabbers for kindergarten.
The entire pack has the same colourful background and frames, so it will make your classroom look great!

2. Numbers 1-10 Tracing and Coloring Pages

These worksheets can be used whenever you have a couple of minutes on your hands. Each worksheet involves tracing the number (one line) and then coloring as many monsters as the number indicates. There's one worksheet for each number from 1 to 10.

3. The Game Bag (A collection of games for kindergarteners)

These are a couple of movement games that my kids (2-4 y.o.) enjoy a lot! We have a small bag where we keep the game cards and when we have some free time on our hands, the kids take turns to choose (with their eyes shut) which games to play. Most of them don’t need props. The instructions for each game are included in the file.

And in my cart you’ll find:

1. Pumpkin Clip art by Kari Bolt

I love everything Kari Bolt does! She has the best clipart: great colours, awesome bundles, with everything you need for almost any theme. I’m planning to examine pumpkins with the kids – measure, weigh, count seeds, and smell them, so these images will complement well our science activities.

2. The Three Little Pigs Mega Fun by Lavinia Pop

My kids love dramatizations and The Three Little Pigs is a perfect story for that! There’s even a playroom at the National Museum here in Helsinki where kids can build houses out of different materials. They are going to have a blast!

3. Clip art: Three little pig and big bad wolf inspired by Revidevi

I have a couple of clipart artists whom I absolutely adore. Revidevi is one of them! She has this cute clip art set I can use to make stick puppets, so we can retell the story. J

What are you planning to buy? I’m curious to read the answers of those who participate in the linkup!
