Dr. Seuss Brag Tag FREEBIE!!!

Hi ya'll. Im back!! I should have posted these yesterday, but was busy working on my Theodore Seuss Geisel Author Study. Click HERE to check it out. Anyways, I have a freebie for you in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday!! Maybe you can sneak them in sometime during your Read Across America week? Every year, I print off these tags and staple them to a brown lunch bag. Students must go home and search the house for an object, stick the item in their bag, and write a rhyming word to match. I have a few students share each day (during circle time) and if we cannot guess what their object is by the rhyming clue - I allow students to give other clues to describe their object. It's a wonderful rhyme review and students LOVE it! Remember...all you'll need is the tag, brown lunch bags, and a stapler! Your students will add the creativity. 

The tag says:
"I don't mean to brag, but I have something in my bag. 
I'll give you this clue, and I bet you can guess it, too! 
It rhymes with __________."

Valentine Freebie

Hi friends. With Groundhog Day over, I'm gearing up for Valentine's Day. I thought I'd spread the love by sharing a freebie with you. Looking for something to give to your students or possibly your teacher friends? Well, look no further. I've got just the thing!
Just print off the freebie, pair it with some "Tic Tacs," and viola! You've got the perfect little Valentine. For extra durability, laminate. You can download the freebie by visiting my TpT store. Just click the cover image below. I've even included game boards where the words "Tic Tac" aren't highlighted for those candy free schools. In that case, just pair the game board with a fun marker or crayon and attach with washi tape. Happy Valentine's Day!
