Every week I put together a list of 5 great products from members of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative (TBOTEMC) with the requirement that each product must be less than $5. With a variety of subjects and a wide range of grades, there just might be something that you can use, so continue to read below and see!
In addition, if you’re a seller on Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT) that would like to join the Wednesday Weekly 5 Under $5 team, click here to get more information about joining TBOTEMC. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions, as I’d be happy to help in any way possible.

Are your students going to read (or maybe even finishing up reading) Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet? Would you like a straight-forward prompt to assess students’ ability to think critically while also citing text evidence? If so, this is the item for you! It comes complete and ready to hand out to your students. Just print off the PDF, add in the due date by hand, and you’re ready to go to the copier! If you’d rather edit the document in any way, you also will receive the Microsoft Word (.docx) version to make any changes you’d like.

Speech Therapy; Grades K-4
Using storybooks in speech and language therapy allows us to target meaningful vocabulary and language objectives within the context of literature and well-constructed narratives. This book, “They All Saw A CAT” is great for building descriptive language skills and talking about point of view. It is a lot of fun to help kids see how the cat is viewed by each of the other animals – bigger, smaller, mean, furry. Included in the project is a lesson plan for multiple days’ worth of activities. Use the book for up to 4 sessions; Matching cards for playing a Memory-type game; match the animal with how it saw the cat; 3 matching worksheets for matching the animal with how it saw the cat; Mix & match puzzles; and much more. See the full details on the product page!

All Subject Areas; Grades PreK-6
Integrate geography, math, and writing activities using Edith Baer’s book, This Is the Way We Go to School. Students learn about the different ways kids around the world go to school, and use a world map to locate each place. The class creates a tally chart and a bar graph to show how they all get to school. Questions for analyzing the data are included. Students complete a descriptive writing prompt sharing a new way to get to school – fun for sharing and/or making a class book.
Color Words Clip Cards – $4.00
By Kamp Kindergarten
ELA/Reading; Grades K-1
Get inviting literacy centers for your learners to practice reading color words. There are 80 clothespin clip cards with a color word and a choice of three pictures printed on each card. Learners read the word and clip a clothespin to the picture of that color object. You may use all the cards, select the cards that address specific color words for your lesson, or select the cards that best meet your learners’ needs. These cards are great for morning tubs, early finishers, literacy centers, and take home practice. The following color words are addressed in this packet: red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, brown, black, pink, and white. Please Note: How colors print often varies on individual printers. The free preview has a printer test page included that has a sample of each color from the graphics used in the packet. You may download the preview and print that page to determine how the colors will print on your printer before purchasing the resource.
