Anywhoo I am linking up to a fun party about what purchases I have made.
Blog Hoppin' is hosting a Sneak a Peek linky
The first item has been sitting in my cart for awhile. I teach habitats next quarter and was looking for new ideas. Jen over at the Teacher's Cauldron has this cute little unit.
Of Course I also purchased her Beach Time Centers
They are so fun and match perfectly with my theme:)
I also purchased these cute Message Book Labels from Lori over at
They are a great addition to my writing center. I already printed them out and the kids love writing in the message books. What a great idea:) If you need some other great writing ideas check out her wonderful blog.
My next item was Back To School Mystery Messages from Cara Carroll. I needed a fun activity to keep my little guys busy after they finish their morning work. This is a great way to keep them engaged with math and writing.
Nicole over at Teaching With Style had some cute little What To Do When I am Finished posters. It comes with lots of choices for posting what students can do when they complete their work.I already am using it in my class:)
From Rachelle over At What The Teacher Wants I purchased her Common Core Math and ELA Galore. These are great checklists to help me keep track of the CCSS for what I have taught and need to teach or reteach.
Something else that I absolutely love is this cutesy binder I bought from Bridget at Lovely Little Leaders
I love all the pages for this!! It's just so cute and fun and now I am completely organized, lol!!
And of course this had been sitting in my cart for awhile and I just had to grab it:)
Cute, cute, cute. I bought the book Surfer Chick after Swersty stopped by my blog to tell me she had created this great little unit. I have already read the book to my students and now I just need to go through all these wonderful resources and choose some fun activities to go with it:)
I hope if you made some purchases it didn't set you back too much and that your kiddos are enjoying fun new items from teacher's across the country. I truly love that we are all helping each other out and learning and sharing new ideas in the process. So what did you buy???
