Tweet Moms, Techy iDads, and INSTAGRAM

It's almost that time of year when we get to pay a little extra special recognition to the Mommas and the Poppas of the world!  I always felt like the Dad's get the short end of the stick in the school-gift department because we get out of school in May and their day isn't until June. So to make up for it we make this Father's Day iDad Craftivity on the last week of school, when we can always use another activity to keep us busy as the days and hours left in the school year quickly dwindle down. Now I know not every kiddo has a Dad to recognize which is why there is also an iHeartyou design that students can make for anyone special in their life - grandpa, uncle, brother, etc.

  If you already have this one from last year, I've updated it a little, so make sure you go back and download it again on TPT. I changed a few fonts and also went ahead and added a coupon book as an extra little gift for the students to make and give to their Dads. (or the special person of their choice)

 Of course, we also have to recognize our sweet Mommas! I made a new Tweet Mommas Craft for Mother's Day this year, and I'm excited to make them with my class in two weeks!!

Mom's get coupons too. And, just like the iDad's, all the templates also include a generic option of "You're So Tweet" and "Special Coupon Book" for the kids who have someone other and a mom to recognize. 

You can check them both out in my TPT Shop.

If you'd like a chance to win both, comment with your e-mail and I will pick two winners at random this afternoon.

 Speaking of hashtags.... two of my favs are helping us of us connect via Instagram on Tuesdays for a little segment called Teacher Talk Tuesday!

 I'd love for you to come Follow Me on Instagram



I'm off now to finish up the Common Core Writing Galore May pack. Speaking of Common Core I'm leaving for a CCS in Phoenix after school on Monday and will be gone all week. So it WILL be done by tonight-  along with packing, sub plans, and a few other non negotiable on the ever present "To Do" list today.

 But I'm also going to have to take a pause and get outside to enjoy some of the beautiful NOCO weather!!! My dogs will never forgive me if I don't! Have a restful Sunday friends!!


  1. Your parents are so cute! Good luck packing...I am terrible at having exactly what I need and no more! I throw in too many 'just in case' clothes.

    Would love the chance to win these adorable packets!
