The article this week is a guest post from Descript. Being a teacher-author and blogger myself, I found the information in this post relevant and helpful to my world of creating resources. I spend a lot of time writing and re-writing mystery and quest stories, sometimes I re-write them multiple times before achieving the final product! Frustratingly, when writer's block strikes, it may mean putting a project down and not touching it again for months! If you too experience moments such as this, whether you're a writer of books, essays, scripts, blog posts, report cards, or develop resources on Teachers Pay Teachers, this article is for you.
Welcome back! Start your year with these great products, activities, and projects featured from various TPT sellers. To celebrate the new school year, we will also be running a giveaway! Be sure to read till the end of this post to enter for a chance to win a TPT Gift Card to help kick start the back to school season.
Since I love mysteries, this week I want to share with you a mystery icebreaker game that is a fun way for kids to get to know their peers. I've included the templates that go with this game free to download. I'll first write a game overview, then I'll outline the prep and set-up that must be completed before beginning this mystery icebreaker game.

It's no mystery that a healthy teacher is a happy teacher. Happy teachers are calmer, more effective, and are an integral part of maintaining a positive classroom environment. I've found that when I eat healthy and nutritious food, it helps me go into a positive frame of mind, and the kids seem calmer around me too. It took me a while to notice it, but now I truly believe that kids feed off your energy! So if you are tired and need a healthy energy boost, these yummy brownie bliss balls are the perfect guilt-free teacher treat!
The recipe for these healthy brownie bliss balls is easy to make, can be made in advance, and can be kept in your bag! Everyone might enjoy them in the teacher lounge too if you dare to share.
The previous post aimed at providing some insight to introversion. If you suspect that you have one or more introverted students in your classroom (there's a high chance that you will at least have one), below are some strategies that you can implement in your classroom to help them thrive in school.
The chances are that you probably have at least one introverted student in your classroom if not more. Understanding these students is crucial in helping them also have the opportunity to thrive and shine in your learning environment. This post aims to assist with identifying and understanding what introversion means, and hopefully also remove any misconceptions at the same time. Your students with this personality trait will appreciate it.
