Creative Teaching Press: Favorite Collection & Giveaway

      There's a good chance that you're either already done with the 2014-15 school year, or are like me, and are still counting down the days til Summer Vacation. {3 MORE DAYS PEOPLE!} Some of you may also, like me, already be thinking about BTS15 and how you're going to decorate your room. It's okay to admit it. We, as teachers, simply can't help ourselves. I want to highlight some products from my favorite Creative Teaching Press collection, Inspire U that are on my must-haves list for classroom decor.
      This collection does exactly as titled...Inspires! I already have several of the Chalk It Up! posters in my classroom. I absolutely love the positive messages they give my students. When my principal first came into my room at open house, he immediately noticed the posters and asked where I got them, he loved them that much! If that doesn't tell you how awesome they are, I don't know what does!
      I'm so so excited that Creative Teaching Press has even MORE brand new Inspire U posters in not only the Chalk it Up! collection, but also the Painted Palette. EEK! They are so pretty! I love how colorful they are! Here are some of my favorites...can you sense a theme?





        I try so hard to make sure my students know that we learn best when making mistakes. I often will purposely (sometimes not purposefully) make mistakes to see if they're really paying attention or really understand a concept. They love when their teacher messes up, but I think it's because they know that it's okay to, and everyone makes mistakes. Third grade is hard stuff people! Do you have a student(s) that are pure perfectionists?! They use those erasers down to the itty bitty, because they strive for perfection. Those kiddos are the ones I really have to remind it's okay to make mistakes. These posters add a great visual reminder, as I can easily point to them and say, "but remember...". 
       Not only am I thinking BTS15...I'm also thinking about the holiday season! This teacher loves to deck out the room for holidays, especially Halloween and Christmas. Creative Teaching Press makes it easy to put together seasonal bulletins with their mini bulletin board sets, like this NEW Happy Halloween Mini Bulletin Board Set
 You can easily coordinate with the Chalk it Up! and Painted Palette boarders for the perfect Halloween bulletin board. I'm thinking I will need to use this for Halloween Inferencing!
Can you say adorable and festive?!
Skipping along to Christmas...my absolute favorite time of the year! How cute is this NEW Tis the Season Mini Bulletin Board Set?! 
I love that the elves are posable! So much fun! And of course you can pair the Chalk it Up! and Painted Palette borders with this set, too! The Chalk it Up! holiday light boarder is perfect!
Now that I've got you excited about some of the new items from Creative Teaching Press, I bet you're ready to shop, huh? Well, how about $50 to CTP?! Enter below!

Go visit my friend Kimberly Ann at Live, Laugh, I LOVE Kindergarten to see more of the Chalk it Up! collection!
Make sure to follow me on BlogLovin' for more CTP announcements as CTP is celebrating 50 years of teachers helping teachers. It was 50 years ago that a veteran school teacher named Luella Connelly got the idea to make her creative ideas for fun and effective teaching available to other teachers. And with the success of her “Recipes for Creative Writing,” CTP was born! Since then, generations of teachers have looked to our family-owned, teacher-managed company for the supplementary materials they need to help their students learn and make their classrooms a positive learning environment.
