Everybody knows Scholastic for their amazing collection of children's books. Well if you haven't already heard, Scholastic doesn't only make stuff for kids, they make amazing materials for teachers. For instance, check out Scholastic Printables. I recently discovered they have over 20,000 award-winning lesson plans, mini books, coloring pages, clip art, awards, calendars, craft activities, bookmarks, games, puzzles, flash cards, maps, and skills sheets for EVERY subject, EVERY theme, and EVERY grade level (PreK-6)!

Yup! And get this, it's all online to download and print out for your class in minutes. If you're like most teachers, you probably spend hours of prep time and weekend rest time planning for your classes each week. 

Why waste so much of your valuable leisure time (that you're definitely not being paid for) when you can get unlimited access to tens of thousands of high-quality teaching resources for only $39.99 a YEAR (or only $8.99 a month)! Want to know more? Try it out for 30 days for FREE

Here is sneak peek of some of their awesome activities and skills sheets that can be printed out with your free trial, to get your classes in the mood for the upcoming holiday season.
