I'm taking a break from blog posts about teaching to post something that means a lot to me.  As teachers we care for so many other people.  Please consider caring for one more.  I have created a GoFundMe page for my grandfather, so that he may get a new roof for his home and remain there.

Please consider donating, even if it's only $1.  Every dollar helps!

Get a Roof for Grandpa

Thank you.

Hi everyone!

I recently donated my Character Project and Character Project Sheet to a giveaway given by Heaven in Grade 7! This project is great for the end of a Character Unit and helps the students "show what they know" about the characters they've been studying.  Even though it's Grade 7, there are tons of elementary products that you could win.

If you are interested in winning my Character Project, it is in the 3rd Bundle.

After the TPT sale, I also gained a few new followers.  Welcome and thanks for following!  Lately I've been posting a lot of giveaways and products from my TPT store, but I do also post about my class and strategies for having a successful school year.  I don't start school until September so my mind is not quite there yet! :)

What's On Your Wish List?

Hi everyone!

Tomorrow is TPT's big back-to-school sale!  I know that many people are waiting for the sale to buy items that are on their wish lists (including me)!  Ideas By Jivey had a great idea to have a wish list linky party for the sale.  Below I am listing the top two items that people wish list in my store, and the item that I most covet!

#1:  Mystery Activities and Worksheets
This packet includes an activity in which students decipher a numerical code and make up one of their own codes, an elements of a mystery definition page, a mystery reading chart where students keep track of the elements in their mystery books, and worksheets to help you and the students stage (and solve) your own crime!

#2: Third Grade ELA Common Core Standards Bulletin Board Set 
 This is a complete set of bulletin board posters of the ELA Common Core standards for the third grade. It includes Reading Literature, Reading for Information, Speaking and Listening, Foundational Skills, Writing, and Language. Each standard is in it's own box. They are easy to cut, laminate, and use on your bulletin boards or schedules!

Annnd...the item that is on MY wish list that I would love to get is Yearn to Learn's Equivalent Fraction Kite Project.

Can you recommend an item that people should wish list?
