The BIG TPT B2S Sale: What I'm loving this year!


What teacher doesn't love a good sale? I mean we already spend a ton on our classrooms, so a sale means we can get more for our money! That's win in my book! Monday and Tuesday are the TPT (teacherspayteachers) Back to School Sale. You can get some of the best prices all year. I had a really hard time narrowing down my favorites. I want #allthethings. My wish list is definitely jam packed. :) But here are my top favorites this year:

1. Math Centers from Elementary Shenanigans

Can i just say that Hope King is a genius. I truly had a love/hate relationship with Math Centers. Loved the ability to do small group instruction, HATED all the prep work and lost pieces. Not to mention how complicated it was to differentiate and not had a bunch of bored kiddos! The other day I had the opportunity to watch Hope's Periscope about her centers. OMG, guys! Seriously, she has solved the Center craziness. She has truly simplified the process with her A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. centers. No joke these are life changing!! One set of centers can get you through the ENTIRE year! Or if you're feeling fancy you can chose to use her monthly themed centers. All you need is laminated file folders,student folders, velcro, her response sheets, number cards (a deck or the ones included in the packet), and readily available manipulatives. No tiny pieces to cut, laminate and use. No leveled activities to find and use. One center= #allthelevels. Brilliant!

You can check out her centers on TPT here, and definitely check out her blog here for the videos on how she sets it all up.

Side-note: If I could afford it I would quite literally buy everything Hope makes, her stuff is that good. I really, really had a hard time narrowing it down to just one.

2. Step into Second Grade's Key Word Kiddos

Umm seriously how cute are these?And bonus they are super helpful. A lot of my kids always had trouble deciphering word problems, struggling to choose the right operation. So in the past I had an anchor chart with this info posted on my wall. But how much more fun are these! Love them! I have used Amy's products in my room for years, I love her!

You can check them out on TPT here, and definitely check out her blog here for the details on how she sets it all up.

3.  A Teacher's Plan Book by The Teacher Wife

Keeping everything organized is always a challenge. While I love the look of teacher planners, especially the Erin Condren ones {drool}, they never really worked for me. And the price. Ouch. Something totally customizable works much better for me. So I've stuck with binders the past few years. I've gone through a few different setups, but I absolutely love this binder insert set by Lindsey (The Teacher Wife). Exactly what I need, easy to print and a cute simple design. LOVE IT!

4. One Extra Degree's Picture This Writing Prompts

I'm always looking for early finisher activities that are meaningful. These picture writing prompts fit the bill. They are adorable and look like so much fun. The kiddos are going to love writing stories about what is happening in these pictures!

5. Super in Second! by Babbling Abby

The first week of school can be super crazy, all the supplies to unpack, all the kids to meet, all the beginning of the year assessments, all the... well I'm sure you know ALL ABOUT IT. Making the first week memorable and enjoyable, sets the tone for the rest of the year. This packet is perfect for starting the year off right. It is jam packed with fun activities that will help create community and an atmosphere of fun. I love everything Abby makes! It was super hard to choose just one!
