On a more exciting note, today is (or was) my 25th birthday! WOO HOO! This beauty arrived at our classroom this afternoon from my very thoughtful boyfriend. I love how they added Gert to the corner. She is my favorite. Obviously we are cheering for the Cards to win!
As a gift to myself I've done A LOT of TPT shopping this week! Today I was given a $100 check from our PTO to purchase TPT resources and I couldn't be happier to spend it. Let me share.
I've been wanting this for a while and I finally broke down and purchased it. I think it is going to be really beneficial once I sit down and read through it. I'm going to actually use it tomorrow for practice over theme!
I've purchased all three of her writing units and they are WONDERFUL!!! I don't know how I would have made it through narratives. I can't wait to use this for opinions.
I shrunk these bad boys down to 65% to glue into our math journals. We did two of these today and I really think they helped my students understand our standard better. They allow for great math discussion. After a couple more times of practice I'm going to have my students break down into groups to do them together. I quickly added these to my unit.
I printed all the stories out of both of these for my kids to read next week. They are differentiated (that's why I bought both) I think it will be a fun switch up and they will enjoy reading these during silent reading.
I hope I don't have too many typos! This Cardinals game is out of control!!
I was flattered to be mentioned in the Top 50 Elementary Teacher Blogs by Teacher Certification Degrees.com I came in #43. I'll take it;) Check out all the other WONDERFUL blogs, they are so deserving.
