Hey, Teachers!

Are you also spending too much time trying find resources for art, STEAM, and creative things? Perhaps like me, your school has closed for the rest of the year and you’re trying to sort out how to get good content to kids without losing your mind?

Sharing is caring. I believe when teachers share resources, it leaves more time to focus on the teaching.

I work hard to credit others when appropriate, and I never post materials made by others without their permission. I also believe in morals and karma, so try hard not to sell my materials to others. If you post a freebie to your own site, a credit with a link to original source is appreciated. If you post a purchased resource from my TPT (or any other TPT), you’re really breaking the teacher code of role modeling ethical digital citizenship, and you should stop.

I know some teachers make absolute bank, but I’m not one of them. I’m one of the ones just trying to recoup some of hundreds I personally spend keeping my Title 1 elementary Art and STEAM programs flourishing.

Classroom Labels in English and Spanish

I made these to support my bilingual and English Language Learners in the art room. They are FREE because I used a free border and took pictures from Google.

Art Table Labels in 8 Colors

There are two series right now that you can mix and match, and they are FREE because I don’t own rights to famous artworks, but these are fair educational use. The links will take you to my TPT page, but they are 100% free.

Emergency Substitute Lesson Plans 

Let’s face it, the average sub is not prepared to deal with the art room. I even prep my kids when I know I’m going to be at conferences, so they know what to do in case the sub is really clueless. While I rarely need a sick day (knock on wood!), I have these as my emergency lessons.

  1. I teach the littler artists of the world, so our clay projects tend to be heavier and thicker than necessary. When I wrote it, I had 7 year olds in mind and what I wanted them to understand about Clay transformation on a basic level. Borrow away, and thanks for sharing.
