We’ve unearthed some epic freebies and offers for you this week, take a look:
Have you seen the new Elementary Playbook available from Special Olympics? It’s for schools interested in the Unified Champion Schools program and includes activities, tips, planning sheets, and much more. The program’s goal is to build lasting friendships between students with and without intellectual disabilities and create a truly inclusive environment.

Early childhood teachers, Sesame Street in Communities is offering free professional development courses on important topics such as reading, math, and resilience. Each online course includes a video and webinar; you’ll get a certificate when you complete the materials. See what’s coming up here.
I think my favorite category of dinos might be the sauropods. Scientists recently discovered sauropod tracks on the coast of Scotland. The tracks were so big they could be mistaken for tidal pools. Now that’s cool!
PS: International Fairy Day is coming up on June 24. What could be more fun than heading outdoors to play Musical Toadstools or Fairy Freeze Tag? Find out how here.
