Resources That Keep Us Afloat

Hey hey!  I'm linking up with the other gals from Owl-ways Be Inspired to share some of the resources that keep us afloat in the classroom.  I hope you'll find a few things to add to your wish list before the big sale Thursday and Friday!
As much as I love classroom posters (and I've made about a million), kids don't always want to get up to use them while they're writing.  I love these because they come with mini poster sets.  Laminate them, put them on a ring, then put them out at their tables.  When you have reluctant boy writers asking to use these, you know you're on to something.

I made three different sets.  The first one is an editing set.  The next two are revising sets.  One focuses on "writer talk" to revise.  Banish boring works, show don't tell, that kind of stuff.  The second focuses on parts of speech to revise.  Look for nouns, add adjectives, etc.  I find that different types of kiddos respond better to one way over the other, so I always make both available.  You can buy them individually, or purchase the bundle here.

Here are some more products I'm loving from other stores:

Sub planning.  Most fun ever!  Tanja from Journey of a Substitute Teacher has some awesome sets in her store.  This one geared toward 3rd grade, but she also has K-5 sets, themed sets, all sorts of awesome sets.  These would be great to have for that morning you want up with the stomach flu or some other nastiness.  Have these ready to go in a folder, get your sub, and go back to bed. Nice.

Last is a set from Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas that I'm kind of in love with.  Holidays start getting the short end of the stick around third grade.  With state mandated testing, it's 100% all of the time.  This set would be a blast for St. Patrick's Day.  It's educational, but it's also fun.  I think it would be great to have a whole day with this set to celebrate AND learn.

  17. I just spent $300.00 at the TpT sale...I don't want to even know how many days of salary that just was *insert blush here.* Since today is pay day, it is probably not a good idea to break the bank already. That being said, I plan to go in for Round 2 tomorrow =D. I also just added your "Editing and Revising Bundle" to my wish list...wow, just wow...they look PHENOMENAL!!! I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to be the lucky recipient of this bundle <3 <3 <3. Thank you for considering me =). leafsgirl@rogers.com.
