  1. I love Maria Manore's monthly calendars. I have every month and use them every day! My students can't wait to see what the calendar will look like each month. I recommend them for everyone!

  2. I have really enjoyed finding so many wonderful resources. I especially like the interactive notebook materials from Blair Turner, and I have also found the reading resources from Emily Gibbons to be very well made, and engaging for my third grade students.

  3. I LOVE Amy Lemons' math sets. I'm currently using her 2-Digit Addition with Regrouping pack, but I just got her subtraction one to use next. I've used her fractions, capacity, measurement, and place value activities, as well as her back to school and number sense centers. She's my go-to for math!! (I swear....she didn't pay me to write this.)

    Also, I'm currently loving The Applicious Teacher's persuasive writing packs - I Wanna Pet and No Turkey for Thanksgiving!

    Congrats again on your blogiversary! I'm so lucky to have gotten to know you through blogging and SLANT box, and I can't wait to see more of your creative (and musical!!) ideas!

  4. Hi Jennifer,

    Congratulations on your Blogiversary! Yay! Thank you for all the fun goodies you've had this week. So much fun! :) There are so many great products on TpT. I love Jen Runde's Reading Comprehension Fans. We use them in small groups or as a quick assessment after reading. They are fun and the kids don't really even view the prompts as work-bonus!! We keep them on rings hanging in our reading center so they are always handy. Have a wonderful day!

  5. These are the two resources that I frequently use:
    Fluttering through the Seasons

  6. Congrats on a big milestone! I want to go through my purchases section of TPT and post EVERYTHING. It's all been so helpful. The ones that are helping me right now are: Proud to Be Primary's Pre-Primer Sight Word Mega Pack. I'm using it for my spelling program.
    and Mrs. Leeby's "What's in a Name?"
    Thanks for all the giveaways! I love reading your blog.

  7. Thank you to you and the contributors for all the clip art giveaways this week. I really like Teaches Third in Georgia's task card sets. She has a growing set that she continuously adds to. Well worth it! Lots of goodies on my TpT wish list as the TpT authors are so awesome! Thanks for a wonderful blog to read!! :)

  8. Since I have 458 purchases (thank you TPT for making it front and center!) it is hard to say what I enjoy using the most. Did just pick up Sassy Savvy Simple Teaching's Close Reads sets (three of them!) recently since they correlate with our science and am looking forward to using them when we get to those units.

  9. Congrats on your milestone and blogiversary!!! I have many favorites on TpT. One of them is Babbling Abby's Fact Files Bundle: Informational Texts (the bundle is ON SALE from $30 to $10!!!). It currently has Oct. & Nov. but she is adding one for almost every month (so it will include October-May). It can be hard for students to gain information from texts, but this is a fun way to help them with non-fiction texts. It could be a great portfolio resource as well. Here is the link to this awesome bundle:

  10. Hooray for you Jennifer! Wonderful achievements! I enjoy so much of the work of the sellers on TpT. Deb Hanson certainly deserves a shout out. She is very supportive of fellow bloggers and is quite generous. Check out her Partner Plays!! My students love her stuff. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  11. I love Jennifer Findley's store! She has a lot of great resources for ELA and Math.

  12. Congrats! I use so much stuff from tpt its hard to know where to start. I have a planner that I got on tpt that I love and I love teaching with a mouintian views task cards for reading!

  13. I LOVE Kristi Swearingen's Reading Street centers/games!! They go along with our curriculum beautifully and the kids adore them! If there ever is a day that we do not do afternoon centers they are bummed because they do not get to play the games!

  14. Just one!?! I love Amy Lemons' store and I'm really impressed with Olsen's Lucky Learners and her math interactive notebooks, which I use almost daily. I also love creative clips for clip art.

  15. Wish that I had the patience and skill to do what you do. My measly attempts pale in comparison.

  16. I've been obsessed with Deedee Wills for a long time now and after going to a conference with Kim Adsit, I am hooked on her stuff, too! :) As a relatively new teacher, TpT has saved me so much time and has inspired me to do so much more from the start of my career!! Maybe someday I'll open up my own store, but for now I love finding new creations and new sellers all the time and I have endless resources at my fingertips. I love it!!


  17. I am obsessed with so many sellers and feel like I own their entire stores. But my lifesaver this was was Caitlin Clabby of Kindergarten Smiles and her monthly word work and math centers pack. I had a busy crazy week last weekend and this past weekend. It was a great grab and go pack that I could pull for this week that had every skill included that I needed to teach and my kids love the activities! I have everyone she has made so far :)

  18. Love your black and white photo at the top of your blog page. Congratulations! I really enjoy many products from TpT sellers. The Science Penguin has an fabulous Interactive Notebook that offers so much. We use it quite often in our classroom and my students love the interactive aspect. Thank you for all the giveaways this past week.

  19. I love Aar You Ready to Learn Addition With Regrouping, from Natalie's Nook. Super fun unit I've used many times with students who come to me for Title 1 math intervention. Here's the link if you'd like to check it out. I highly recommend it!

  20. I love anything by Amy Lemons from Step into Second Grade. I am especially liking her addition and subtraction math centers. My kids are really reviewing a lot with them.
