#TeacherHacks: Pointer Holder!

Hey everyone!

This is just going to be a quick post about one of my best classroom hacks EVER!  Who here has always kept their pointers in a container that always toppled over? ::raises hand:: ME!  After 8 years in the classroom, I think I finally found a solution to pointer storage!

All you need are Command hooks (or any hooks) and a small crate!  BOOM!  Easy peasy lemon squeezy! No more toppled over pointer containers!  This Pointer Holder cost less than $8 to make!

I also started a hashtag for #TeacherHacks so YOU can share your hacks with other teachers!  You can take a pic of your Teacher Hack and use the hashtag #TeacherHacks in your description!

Here is my Amazon affiliate link for the 3G Command hooks I used for the pointer holder: 3G Command Hooks (6 Pack-Medium)

Thanks for reading!  Feel free to share this blog post with your teacher friends and Pin on Pinterest.  Love ya's!

Best wishes and kisses,


Monday Made It! TpT Back To School Sale!

Another Monday, another Monday Made It! hosted by Tara of 4th Grade Frolics!

I know a lot of you are either back at school today (or returning very soon) and are hustling to get your classrooms decorated, papers copied and prepping beginning of the year center activities. Let me help you out with a fun, engaging, low-prep Literacy Center/Daily 5/RTI activity!

Alphabet Match Up Puzzle
Super simple!  Just print (colored & black and white version included) on card stock, laminate, cut and VOILA!  

Here is how they "play": 

Students will match the puzzle pieces together that have the same uppercase letter, lowercase letter, and beginning sound.

   How do you know they are matching them up correctly?  There is a blackline master included that they will fill out!  You can use this as a formal or informal assessment tool to show parents how their child is performing independently during Literacy Centers/Daily 5/RTI time!

Don't you love my artistic skills?  My kiddos sure do! 

Easy peasy folks!  Now is a great time to pick up this product because not only am I having a Back to School Sale for E V E R Y product in my store, Teachers Pay Teachers is offering an additional 10% off, which means you can score a bunch of my products for a total of 28% off it's original price!
