Teacher Appreciation Sale!

Let’s Go Shopping!

The Teachers Pay Teachers “Teacher Appreciation” Sale takes place on May 5 and May 6, 2015.  I can hardly wait!  Everything in my store will be discounted at 20% off.  Don’t forget to use the COUPON CODE to get an additional discount.  The COUPON CODE is:  ThankYou.  Remember to click on the “APPLY” button when you are ready to make your purchases.

One thing that I love about Teachers pay Teachers sales is that the coupons are endless!  The coupon code works no matter how many times I shop.  If I go shopping on May 5th and forget an item, I can always go back later and use the coupon code again.  But . . . once the sale is over with, the coupon code won’t work.

I’ve been busy creating new products and am excited to show you a few here.  This is my first post on The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative WordPress blog.  Therefore, I am not sure how all the bells and whistles work but it will be fun to take her for a test drive.

Informational Text

There are eight pages of informational text about the topic: Kings, Queens and the Feudal System. The passages cover the following topics:

  • The Feudal System
  • Becoming King; Becoming Queen
  • The Coronation
  • Qualities and Abilities of Royalty
  • Famous Medieval Kings
    • William the Conqueror
    • Richard I
    • King John
  • Famous Medieval Queens
    • Matilda of Flanders
    • Eleanor of Aquitaine
  • Other Classes of the Feudal System


Words that are included:

King, Queen, Pope, Feudal System, Regent, Nobles, Consort, Serf, Peasant, Magna Carta, King John, Crusades, Matilda of Flanders, Clergy, Skilled Laborers, William the Conqueror, Taxes, Fief, Duchy, Loyalty and Service, Long Live the King!,  Coronation, Charter, Eleanor of Aquitaine


Although all cards contain the same 24 words, the order on each card is unique.  Each student will find every word on their card.  Of course, this means “blackout” is not a good option – although my students sometimes insisted on playing all the way through and singing out “BINGO” in unison at the end!


This product is great for a large group, class or co-op.!  It can be played in the traditional way where the instructor randomly chooses one of the cards and calls out the word.  Or, to play as a review game, the instructor can read the clue that appears on the card below the BINGO word.
