The COVID-19 Pandemic is thrusting many K-12 teachers to move from traditional classrooms to the unfamiliar waters of remote teaching. Many school districts are faced with having to put in place remote learning plans for students within a matter of days. Here are a few tips to keep in mind for teachers that are new to an online environment.
One of the most challenging obstacles in regards to remote teaching is making sure that there isn’t a lack of clear communication between teacher and learner. It is important to make sure assignment instructions are written in a way that not only the student will understand, but also a parent/guardian can understand.

The Editable Newsletter Templates has been updated! Same incredible price but now with color AND Black & White Templates. Now you have 168 different choices to choose from to relay information to parents with the ultimate choice in layout and printing options.

I’m offering Editable Monthly Calendars in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. They come in color and black and white versions so that you can choose your printing preference. The color versions are great to send in emails or post to teacher websites and the black and white versions are great for printing and photocopying.
The calendars are editable in Microsoft PowerPoint, so you
will need this program to edit. Of course,
you can always print and write in information.
The monthly titles, numbers, and clip art are embedded into the file so
they are not editable, this is to protect the copyright of the artists I have
invested in; however, I will provide yearly updates for free with your purchase. All you will need to do is go into your
purchases and download the file for your free yearly update after I post the
new year each year! This is a great
value for your classroom or homeschool!
I have also added alternative designs for the months of
February, March, April, July, October, November, and December. This is so you can choose if you would like
to use a holiday theme or a non-holiday theme for the month.

New offering! The Ice Cube Investigation Resource is now being offered as a standalone resource and separate from the February and Valentine’s Day Pack. This resource is a fun way to incorporate science fun and writing into the classroom.
Included in this resource are two different versions. The Classic PDF version of the Ice Cube Investigation offers printable worksheets for students to discover how an ice cube melts in water, salt, and vinegar. However, I have also included an Editable Templates version of this resource that you can edit in different substances if you would like to change what your students test their ice cubes in (please note, for the Editable version of your resource you need to have Microsoft PowerPoint to edit your templates).
The Ice Cube Investigation includes a cover page that can be colored or decorated, a prediction page, an observation page, and a project summary page. Students can practice filling in the blank, making predictions, charting observations, drawing a picture of what they learned, and forming sentences or even an entire paragraph.
My latest creation is a super bundle of Editable Newsletter Templates. I have created 21 different designs and then offered them in 4 different layouts so that you can pick and choose what template fits the amount of information you need to relay. Your newsletters will always look robust with this resource at your fingertips!
In all, you end up with 84 different templates! Here are some examples of the kinds of Newsletters you could create with the templates:
The blank templates are super easy to use so if you don’t have experience with Microsoft PowerPoint (which, please note, you must have to use this resource) don’t be intimidated it is super user friendly. First download your purchased Editable Newsletter Templates resource and unzip (or extract) your file just like you do with any resource you buy on Teachers Pay Teachers.
Next open your resource in your Microsoft PowerPoint software. Pick a template you would like to use and then you can add text to any part of the template. I have created heading boxes and boxes where you can add information. All you have to do it click on “Insert” and then “Text Box” from here you can draw a box anywhere on the template and type in text. You can choose different fonts and adjust the how small or large you would like the text. (Please note: the design of the template and its clipart are not editable, they are embedded to protect the rights of the original clip-artists that I have invested in, and whom I adore!)
I’ve created both holiday themes and non-holiday themed templates so you can pick and choose what would be appropriate for you student population. Here is a sneak peek at the template designs included in one of the four template layouts offered:
These newsletters can be created and sent to parents via email, be printed out, photocopied and sent home, you could even post it to your teacher website if your school district has this kind of technology in place. There are endless possibilities. You can find more about this resource HERE.
