CYBER Sale and Four $25 TpT Gift Vouchers

CYBER Sale and Four $25 TpT Gift Vouchers

If you're like me then you have been hanging out for TpT's sitewide cyber sale!  My wishlist is busting at the seems.   I have 184 items on my TpT wishlist.  Granted, I will not be purchasing all 184 but I will be adding a bunch to my cart.   

I have already added 12 things to my cart and will continue browsing up until the sale.  I just don't want to miss out or get distracted and forget about the sale!  

Oh and be sure to watch the countdown clock at the top of each TpT page during the sale so that you don't miss out on the big saving from your fave sellers!

I will be adding all downloads from my Clever Classroom store to the sale.  

Clever Classroom TpT

That means that if you use code: TPTCYBER in checkout, you can take 28% off the original price of each item, WOW, that's a HUGE savings.  

TpT doesn't have these sales often, so be sure you don't miss out. 

Did you know you can save even more than 28%?

Leaving TpT feedback and earning points.  How does it work?

If you leave feedback, you also save.  So hurry and leave considered feedback for your past purchases.  I still haven't done this but will be doing from the TpT app whilst on the sofa tonight!

So how does the TpT feedback system work?

Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example.


I seem to add so many of my wish listed products via Pinterest.  It's a great visual medium to see resources up close or better still, inaction. 

Here is my store board on Pinterest,

Goodnight Santa: A Holiday Book Inspired Craft

I’m joining in with a few of my friends to bring you a collection of holiday themed books and some inspired crafts and activities.

Goodnight Santa: A Christmas Book Inspired Craft

December is always an exciting time of year, full of joy and wonder for young children.  To capture the wonder of the holidays and Christmas I like to read 'Goodnight Santa' by Michelle Robinson.


Goodnight Santa shares the perspective of Christmas Eve for children and for Santa and his helpers.

The book told through rhyme and covers simple Christmas vocabulary such as: snowman, stocking, mistletoe, ho-ho-ho, Santa, elves, presents, reindeer, gifts, jingling and bells.

The book is set in a winter theme, with snow frost white towns, with sparkling, snowflakes and winter wonderlands.

Goodnight Santa: A Christmas Book Inspired Craft

It is an ideal picture book for young children to project and discuss Christmas Eve, the language of Christmas, revise rhyme and get excited about the advent and magic of Christmas. 

I recommend this book for Pre-K to grade two as a read aloud story for parents and teachers.  I love the descriptive vocabulary, rhyme and bold illustrations. 


After reading Goodnight Santa, you can have your students complete this craft activity.

Goodnight Santa: A Holiday Book Inspired Craft

Word Up Christmas Tree is a craft and writing activity that you could use with this story or almost any Christmas book.

The craftivity focuses on cutting, pasting and arranging strips as well as the vocabulary used in a book.
