The internet is teeming with teacher freebies, some more valuable than others. Here are a few of my favorites...
Squidoo has a collection of free board game templates. These include Monopoly, Shutes and Ladders, Candyland and Checkers. They can be used to review content, entertain classes during indoor recess, etc.
Laura Candler digitalized her file cabinet and put them online for teachers to access and use. She has a large collection of handouts in all the core classes, as well as activities for the holidays.
In case those don't give you exactly what you're looking for, here are 30+ past posts with freebies for a variety of occasions. Each post has at least 3 links to freebies and/or collections of freebies. This is definitely worth checking out as you begin the school year!
