Weekly Wrap / June 27

This post contains affiliate links.

It’s been a busy week in my little corner of the Internet! I usually do Friday roundups on Instagram stories (join me there!) but I thought I’d start doing them here too, especially to share some favorite links from the week.

in my shop

This week I focused on adding new rewards systems for online teaching: school supplies and pool floaties themes! The floaties are my favorites :) I also opened a Teachers Pay Teachers account - a brand new platform for me! I am really enjoying it so far. I can definitely tell it was designed with teachers in mind. I designed 60 free mini would-you-rather game cards (pictured above) and made them available for free on TpT!

on my blog

This week, I published a big ol’ roundup of my favorite whiteboard markers, since I’m in the market for some new ones! Check it out here, and let me know your favorites - I’m partial to those Erin Condren ones! Last week, I published a one week update of my Etsy shop, how I style and edit photos for Instagram, and Handmade Sunday Vol. 1. Also new on my site: a growing collection of my favorite art supplies.

on my radar

Have you seen the new Sesame Street postage stamps?

Oohing and aahing over this intricate leaf crochet art.

I’m currently coveting this beautiful candle.

The Sibert winners were announced this week! Check out all the wonderful nonfiction picture books that received awards.

This sticker book made me feel nostalgic. Anyone else have Mrs. Grossman’s stickers as a kid?

I wish I had known about this hypoallergenic play dough when I was running sensory playtimes! It comes in such pretty naturally dyed colors too!

I’ve been pinning my favorite animal crafts and art projects this week: how adorable are these Perler bead cats?

Speaking of Pinterest, I have several boards devoted to all things VIPKid: Dino, classroom inspiration, Mike and Meg, rewards systems, grammar concepts, etc. Check them all out here.

for Patreon subscribers

New this week exclusively for my Patreon supporters: printable ABC songs! I created a fun visual way to teach (and remember for myself haha) the Chinese and American versions of the ABC song. If you’re new to my blog, I publish weekly printables on Patreon that you can access for just $2/month (that’s 4-5 resources a month for the price of just one of the items for sale in my shops!)

That’s all for now, friends. Happy teaching and have a lovely weekend!
