Just got home from Back to School night, after a day of pepping and assessing kiddos. Whew. But I wanted to take a moment before I go to bed to link up with Blog Hoppin and The School Supply Addict to share some of my TPT Haul items from this past weekend because honestly, I'm thrilled about ALL of them!!
I picked up Rachelle's Journals Through The Year, mostly because I really loved the monthly graphics for each cover page. SO CUTE! But I also liked how she included a wide variety of journal papers so I can graduate my firsties to "second grade" paper by the end of the year.
I absolutely HAD to get Regan's Class Pet Writing Journal because I can't think of too many things that will make my kids more excited about writing than their days with our class pet. I can't wait to go to the store and adopt one for our class this year!!
The next three items were things I purchased because they are all things that will help make three areas more meaningful...
This was not a wish list item. Hope shared it on her blog the day of the sale and the moment I saw it I knew I HAD to have it!! It's a reading incentive program for your kids to motivate them to READ! They don't have to be the world's best reader either, they just have to try. AR testing, reading logs, literature response sheets -- all earn then SNAPS. The kids earn "Snap" points that they can cash in for fun prizes like, throwing a pie in your teachers face maybe? And one of my best friends and I say "Oh Snap" all the time so, I just generally feel like this program fits my personality to a tee. I absolutely LOVE it!!
I grabbed Ashley's 600 pages Fry Words Mega Pack which, for a whopping $8.00 during the sale, was a total STEAL considering I'm convinced it must have taken her at least 800 hours to put it all together. But it's 600 pages of wonderful! My school uses FRY site words so now I can easily send them home with my kiddos one list as a time and track their progress.
And last but definitely not least, I picked up Megan's It's Calendar time in hopes that it will make our daily Calendar time more conscious, engaging, and meaningful. I have to be honest yall, I'm always really good about calendar in the beginning of the year but after awhile...it gets boring. And on a busy day, it's usually the first things to go. But this year I will be doing calendar on my Promethean board and adding this Calendar Notebook into the mix , so I honestly think it's going to become one of the favorite times of the day in our room!
I also picked up a few new items that are non digital....
New Book Bins
All my B2S purchases = One super pumped teacher!!! :)
