*FREE* Easter Word Search Bookmarks

I am so excited that tomorrow is the first day of April! I decorated the library for Easter and Spring right before I left for our two day Spring Break. The colors and fun decor make me happy! Last night, I created some *FREE* Easter word search bookmarks for my kiddos and thought you might be able to use them in the coming weeks, too. Click here or on the picture below to download this Easter freebie from my TpT store!

I also have some oviparous animals word search bookmarks in my TpT store for free, as well. You can get them here. These are great for classes who are learning about life cycles!

*FREE* 4 Printable Easter Treats Bookmarks

Spring Break weekend has been a little rainy, which is not so great for getting to do anything outside, but perfect for getting to work on things for school! I created some bookmarks for my little readers this afternoon and thought you might enjoy this freebie, too! Click here or on the picture below to download these bookmarks for free from my TpT Store!

Mark Twain Readers Award Nominees 2019-2020

I am excited to have created a site with author info and links to book trailers for the Mark Twain Readers Award Nominees for 2019-2020 to prepare for next fall. If you are a Missouri elementary librarian, you might find this beneficial, too. Even if you aren't, there are always amazing books on all of our state Readers Awards nominee lists and I am positive this year won't disappoint! Click here or on the picture below to take you to the site.

We read Wishtree by Katherine Applegate this year and my 4th and 5th graders are currently working on story responses. We have a good combination of kiddos making videos, creating Google Slides, making posters, 3D projects and more. I can't wait to post some of their work.

*FREE* Reading Signs for Your Classroom or Library

I created these signs to frame in my library when my theme was "Reading is Sweet". I purchased black 8" x 10" picture frames from Dollar Tree and cut the signs to size and hung them with 3M Command Velcro Strips. They looked so cute and really popped against our gray walls. These printable signs are actually black and white.

I created this set to be editable for adding color to the background for those with access to a color printer. However, I printed mine on bright colored paper from Wal-Mart. I also created the last sign with a blank in the area of 'a cupcake' so you could change it to say whatever you like. The font is MTF Skinny and the size is 166. If you use these signs, I would love to see a picture! Click here or on any picture below to take you to the free download.
