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.

If you want to get your students to think about the world around them and understand that everyone in the world has the same rights, but not everyone actually gets those rights, this is the unit to do this. Using explanatory writing as the genre of writing, students learn about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, while learning how to write different explanatory writing formats. This unit includes links to required media, a teach guide (with 21-day timeline) and a student book to get you started. The final assessment questions are also provided. Rubric/success criteria are to be developed with the class (I do not provide rubrics because of the differences in curriculum).

This is a perfect tool to use when helping your students familiarize themselves with the hundreds chart, recognizing colors (pink, gray, blue, orange, yellow, green, black, purple, brown, and red), and recognize numbers 0-100. These pictures are a fun and engaging way to reinforce number sense. These can be used at any time during the day–just print and go! It includes 12 total designs (Pencil, School Bus, School House, Scissors, Apple, Books, Chalk Board 123, Chalk Board AB, Clock, Crayons, Glue, and Lunchbox), 2 versions of the hundreds charts to color for each design: Numbered and Blank (students can fill in the blank chart on their own and then color), which is perfect for differentiation, as well as an answer key (mystery picture) for each.
