It is sad sad each year while preparing my taxes I start to print out all of my TPT receipts.  I always am shocked at the amount of money that I spend! :)  I am almost always very happy with my purchases and they save me so much time but seeing that final number is always a little shock to my system!

Since nothing beats word of mouth and I'm one of those Amazon shoppers that spends an hour reading reviews before I buy something- I thought that I'd give you some of my reviews of items.  These are some of my favorite things that I have either made or purchased recently:

That lovely Lory Evans has made fantastic daily math review sheets for the entire year.  These appear to be just for first grade skills.  I purchased another version that had some 1-2 skills mixed- which was awesome but I was aiming for just first grade skills.  I started by using term 3 this year.  I peaked at the term 1 skills and might hold off on using it from the beginning of the year because I totally don't cover that much material that fast.  I think that I will use the term 1 for my "advanced" kiddos.  I totally recommend purchasing these! 

Another is one of my kiddos favorites is the Super  e set by The Teacher Wife.  It has a cute super e story and a ton of fun worksheets to practice silent e.  I had left it for a substitute to complete with my students but she didn't have time to complete it.  My students saw it on my desk and were begging me the next day to check it out.  Who am I say no to children begging to learn????  :)  We read the story and completed the worksheets.  My kiddos LOVED it!  My kiddos would HIGHLY recommend buying this!

This last item is one of mine.  It took me many months to complete it.  In it you will find almost everything that you need to teach common core first grade writing.  It has teaching posters, writing notebook resources, rubrics, blank writing forms, publishing pages, topic starters etc for each of the 3 writing types.  If you click on the icon- it will take you to TPT where you can preview it.
All of my items are on sale until tomorrow!  :)

(COUGH-COUGH  remember that you could win a $50 TPT gift certificate by entering my 100 follower giveaway!)
