Hello! Thanks for finding me – Bed Rested Teacher – aka Mom Envy – most likely on Pinterest!
If you’re looking for a teacher file, kid’s craft, or free printable – you’re in the right place! I promise the file or post you’re looking for is here!
Why did I get redirected to a new page? Who is Mom Envy?
Why did you get redirected here to this completely different page? Before I became a stay at home Mom and Mom Envy, I was actually a special education teacher. While I am no longer teaching, teachers and teaching will always hold a special place in my heart.
All of my teaching files are completely free and I link to only free worksheets and activities. As a teacher, you spend enough money on your classroom. You can use all of the help you can get!
Where it All Started
While I was bed rested, I got the crazy idea to start blogging. This was my very first blog experience. My previous blog was a teaching blog titled, Bed Rested Teacher (get it? Kinda cheesy, I know).
So since I changed blogs, I wanted to make sure that people still had access to the materials I created and pinned. The materials below are for both Teachers and Parents! There are a lot of great educational materials here you can use with your own kids at home. Let me know if you try any of them out!
Scrambling for a quick Winter craft?
This was by far my most popular post on Bed Rested Teacher. The crafts are perfect for school because they do not focus on holidays – instead, they focus on winter.
