Sarah Cooley's (First Grader...at Last!) Pigeon Perfect A Mo Willems Activity Pack. I was going to save this adorable packet for next year, but I noticed it has a lettering writing activity that would tie in nicely with my Letter Writing Unit. I know I will be teaching right up until the end of school (June 22), so I still have time.
Second Grade Shenanigans) Knuffle Bunny: A Book Series Study. It is sooo freaking cute!!!
Update! Through Sarah's link up, I found The Duckling Gets a Cookie by Randi of Teach it With Class. Her unit is adorable!!!
Most of you know that I am in the middle of an ant unit and I found this cute and fun math center to do this week with the kids in my pal, Cheryl Saoud's store (Primary Graffiti).
Next year, we are going to have to display our essential questions for students and administrators to see. So, I purchased my sweet friend, Anna Brantely's (Crazy for First) First Grade Common Core Essential Questions. She is going to be so mad that I bought this from her, but her time is valuable and I feel bad asking for things. <3 you Anna!!!
These two items, I snagged at the last sale and I did not get a chance to share about them.
The ever talented and fabulous Rachelle (Ru Shell) Smith of What the Teacher Wants has this great Handwriting Fairy Packet. I am so into "fairies" in the classroom. There is the desk fairy (click here for my freebie), the Tooth Fairy, and the Leprechaun. This packet was PERFECT and it fit in well with my letter writing unit. The kids loved it.
I bought this product by Kathleen Pederson (Growing Kinders) and I use it all the time as a morning job. Just last week, it was a life-saver when I needed just a few more minutes to finish cutting something. I told my students to add more details to their drawings. How cute is their work?
After blog hopping, I went back and bought even more! I am a shopper. For example, right now my new obsession is Amazon.com, because I have the Amazon Prime and get everything in around two days. I order everything and anything from them!! I also love The LOFT and probably own every dress they sell.
Oh, I talk about shopping forever, but back to my point! Here are my new finds:
This packet is by a Canadian seller, Natalie Lamont. It is perfect for our geometry unit. I was in such a rush to buy it that I accidentally bought the Canadian version where "color" is spelled "colour." Natalie was nice enough to contact me before I contacted her about it. She is so on top of things! This is seriously cute and so thorough!
This packet is by the so sweet Becca Sutton, of Teaching First. My district utilizes Handwriting Without Tears, but I always need extra practice sheets. I am going to copy these and really drill in how to form letters next year. I like Handwriting Without Tears' language, but I am not a fan of the "no top line." So I think I will just expose them to both. In real life, there is a top line.
I love The Digital Bakeshop and to be honest I really want to keep her items all to myself. She has a TpT store now and her stuff is just so cute. My firsties loved my Pirate Math Centers this year and I think I want to expand upon them and create a literacy unit. So I purchased this adorable clip art set and background papers.
Here are two more awesome packets by one of my blogging BFF's, Anna Brantley:
When I taught second grade, I always did a math journal and thought it was a great idea. I never got around to making something cutesy for first grade. Now I don't have to! Love this complete set.
