Fall is one of the best times of the year to be a teacher; the leaves are changing, the air is crisp and the season is rich in content ideas. That being said, some of us might still be getting into the swing of things and need a little boost.
We wanted to provide you with a list of great seasonal resources from Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT). Every resource listed is under $5.00 (as of this blog’s publish date). Why $5.00? We’re glad you asked!
How to earn FREE Halloween resources from TpT:
Currently ClassTag is running TWO exclusive offers that can get you a $5.00 gift card from TpT:

Without further ado, here are some TpT treats (who ever said teachers were too old to trick or treat?):
