Take One: Back to School Units and Freebies Galore

Well it’s that time again. It is hard to believe that summer is quickly slipping away and we will be returning to the classroom before we know it! I spent a few hours with a dear friend today (a main trigger/supporter of why I returned to school to get my teaching degree). She always reminds me of where I began and how far I have come. (I love you Ms. D’Val!)

~Back to school memories~

Every year on the first day of school my dad would sing me this little ditty- Oh how it used to make me cringe when I heard him bellow out the words. I would do ANYTHING now to hear him sing it just one more time!! 

School Daze, School Daze

Good ole’ golden rule days

Reading and Writing and Arithmetic

Teacher’s gonna hit you with a hickory stick.

School Daze.. School Daze..

Over the last few days, I have been working on some back to school units for my TPT account. Recently, I started adding a few freebies to go along with my units. I figured I would start posting them as I finished so you all had the opportunity to download, print, and laminate before your school year begins. This will be a multi-part post as I have several units in the works. I will be posting them between now and August. My first posting is my Wild, Wild West theme. (A little tribute to my favorite American Idol ‘Scotty McCreery” and his new song “I love you this big”—Yee Haw, I just love it!!) Hope y’all enjoy!!!



As promised, here are two western themed freebies just for you!!!

#1 Alphabet Round-Up

#2 WANTED Number Roll-UP


I have also posted my Wild West Math & Literacy Unit at my TPT store. There are 87 pages in this unit my little buckaroos. It is filled with 10 different math and 10 different literacy activities, plus directions and activity labels.

Here is a glimpse of my Wild West Unit
