My First "Back to School" Purchases for My New First Graders!

About Me

My photo
Welcome! I hope to use this blog to share some of the amazing things my class and school does to make learning fun! I have been teaching for 15 years already! I started teaching 3rd grade in a Parochial School, then I was hired to teach 1st grade for three years, was moved to 5th grade for 2 years, and then came back to 1st grade in the district where I attended school. I love that I'm able to give back the the school district that guided me to become the teacher I am today! I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, certified 1-8; a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction; and my Administrator License Pre-K-12.

Blogs I Love!

Here's What I Bought...and WON!

Hi Friends!
Did you shop 'til you dropped?  I thought I made all of my purchases until I started reading your blog posts from this linky party...

Hosted by Blog Hoppin'
and then I had to go back and shop a little more!

So now I'm joining in on the linky fun!
Here's what I bought for this year (I linked all of the titles to their product @ TPT):

Lyndsey is face behind the blog, "A Year of Many Firsts" of my many favorites!

Here's their awesome blog...
Whew!  That was some fun shopping!  I can't wait to use these in my classroom this year!

Oh!  I almost forgot! 
 I won something!  I actually WON!  
Kathy @ First Grade a la Carte is throwing her annual Back to School Bash! You should check her out if you don't follow her already!  She is one of the first bloggers I started following and she just seems so real, genuine and down to earth!  
She's giving away freebies each day!  I won her Back to School Bundle that has 6 beginning of the year activities and 2 new activities!  I'm super excited!

So!  There you go!  I'm busy juggling classroom time with pool time and trying to get everything finished...or at least make it look like I'm ready for the kids by the middle of next week.  That's my goal at least.  I'll post pictures once I'm presentable!  :)

Have a great day!
