Show us what you bought!

I had fun buying AND selling some deals yesterday with the big Super Sunday Sale on TpT!  I managed to sell more than I made, thank goodness!

I've linked up with Blog Hoppin's linky to show you what I bought!

I love the Writer's Workshop units by Deanna Jump and Deedee Wills.  I am on their fourth unit with my class so I picked up the fifth one while it was on sale.

Writing Through the Year Unit 5  {Aligned with Common Core}

I picked up this fun Consonant Blends & Digraphs pack from Read Like a Rock Star! It should be great for our Word Work station!

My boys will be super duper excited about this awesome Star Wars memory game from Deedee Wills. We will begin working with CVCe words in about three weeks.

Here's another fun game from Mrs. Wills--this one focuses on blends, which our class just happens to be working on right now!!

The Sweetheart Snatcher by Babbling Abby will sure add some excitement to our Valentine's Day celebration!!

I will have to break out my geoboards because I purchased GeoBoard It! by Jennifer from First Grade Blue Skies. My kinders will have a blast making all of the different shapes during our "table time" in the morning while we're waiting for everyone to unpack!

I always teach my farm unit in the springtime, so I had to pick up Deanna Jump's Down on the Farm Math and Literacy Activities to enhance the students' learning.

Whewww...and lastly, I purchased this cute little My Human Body Book by Lynda Morgart to go along with our human anatomy unit that we will be starting shortly!

So I went a little overboard! But I think I got some great stuff that I know will engage my kiddos in learning! SO...what about you? What did you pick up from the sale? Link up and share! :)

It's Currently Time!

It's February 1st...time to link up with Farley for Currently!  WOW I just looked at how many people have already linked up and it's still only the first of the month!  What an amazing blogging tradition! :)
Here is my Currently...

Listening-My hubby is snow blowing the sidewalks around our apartment building because he works for the company that owns our building. It snowed today here in MN just in the nick of time for my Friday afternoon commute home..:(  An hour and fifteen minutes after leaving school I breathed a BIG sigh of relief when I pulled into my parking spot!!!

Loving- I get to watch my precious two-year-old niece Lucy tomorrow!!! I am SO excited to spend the day with that cutie patootie.  She loves our dog and always has to say, "HI, KONA!!!!" over the phone.

Thinking- Okay, I know I was born and raised Minnesota A.K.A. the Arctic Tundra BUT the weather this morning was just plain brutal for any human, native or not!!!  I really could have used a "frigid weather snow day".  I remember one winter day while I was in 4th grade, the governor closed all of the schools in the whole state because it was socold out.  Hmm why do I still live here again?!?!?

Which brings me to my
Wanting-Springtime. Soon. Enough said!

Needing-I have been feeling kind of restless with the same ol' routine lately. I am wanting some sort of diversion or little mini getaway. Any suggestions?

Pet Peeves- Moochers...yuck. No one likes a moocher in their personal or professional life!
Poor grammar. I'm about to delete some Facebook "friends" for their horribly worded status updates!  They are just stressing me out!!! I'm not the grammar police by any means but there should be some sort of a standard...yikes!
Dog fur on clothes-I think any furry pet owner can relate.  Not a fan of getting to work and realizing my furry friend had brushed up against my black pants and leaving a giant clump of fur all over.  Real cute.

The. End. Link up with Farley to join the fun!  OH and only about an hour to enter my Valentine's Unit giveaway. Click the picture to check it out!

And....I almost forgot! I'm sure you've already heard, but just in case you haven't, there is going to be a huge sale on TpT this weekend.
