Here are some of my fun finds!
You can click on each picture to take you to the store so you can add to your wishlist if you just have to have it for your classroom like I did.
My students love task cards. I love task cards. There are so many ways you can use them in your classroom, they are so much better than just having a boring old worksheet! I usually make my own math task cards to teach exactly what I need, but I heart Rachel's reading task cards. They are awesome. (To be honest, these weren't even all the cards I bought from Rachel!)
I bought Jenn's Comprehension Question Fans on Monday and after I saw them, I had to have her Story Element Fans! I can't wait to get them ready to use in my room!
These are from one of my bloggy BFF's! Elizabeth is a math guru and I really wanted her multiplication and division lapbooks! With our new curriculum we don't start multiplication and division until after Christmas and I can't wait to use these!
I have struggled with writing plans this year, because this is really the first year I have taught writing workshop. So I am currently in love with Jen's Units! She is saving me! She has lots of units and they are Common Core aligned.
Can you sense a theme here? I'm really focusing on literacy this year because this is where the kids in our school have been struggling. The POV Unit is from Nicole Shelby. I adore all of her stuff! The Inference Detectives Unit is from Amanda Nickerson, another one of my blog crushes. I also bought Julie & Krista's Reading Olympian Program. I am so excited to start it with my kiddos.
There were so many cute holiday things to buy, but I kept myself at bay because I know I won't have a lot of time. A big focus in SS is understanding other cultures, so I am definitely doing a Christmas Around the World Unit. So I bought Christina's Powerpoints & Flippy Books, as well as SunnyDay's Hannukah Pack.
I can't wait to use all of these in my classroom! There was a lot more I wanted to buy but I'm just going to save it for later. Oh and in case you missed out on anything from my store, I'm extending my sale until Friday! If you are anything like me, I'm sure I missed something! :)
I've been sick all week, just a mean old cold, and I finally accepted the fact that I need a day to rest so tomorrow is a sick day for me. I plan on resting, catching some daytime TV and printing out some of my purchases!
Have a great Thursday friends!
