These t-shirts make great gifts for teachers to help their 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students learn reading, math, and science skills

Teacher T-shirts that Will Help You Teach Upper Elementary

These teacher t-shirts will help make teaching math, reading, and science more memorable in your 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade classroom

Sometimes a visual (like a t-shirt) can really help a lesson stick with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students.  The teacher t-shirts below cover skills for teaching reading, grammar, math, and science if you want something to make your lesson really pop!  Wear one on an evaluation day for bonus points (unless you have a principal that enforces a super professional wardrobe).

Have a third, fourth, or fifth grade teacher in your life?  These t-shirts would make a great gift for back to school, Christmas, or Teacher Appreciation Day!

This spelling rule is very helpful...except when it's not.  This shirt shows many of the "I Before E" exceptions.
