common core

Here are two great Common Core ebooks...that are free! I've only quickly looked through them but they have some helpful tips with implementing Common Core AND they have links to some freebies (they're also available for upper grades)!

Click here for ELA and here for Math.

i've been shopping...

I think every teacher gets excited about school supples :) I've been doing some shopping here and there and this is what I've picked up last week. Those lamps? I'm very excited about those! I found them at Ikea and decided I needed two :) They also had grey and maybe white but I liked the orange and green. They're metal and were $10 bucks a piece. I bought some cute metal buckets at Walmart - great for putting pens or markers in. Target has Dr. Seuss pencils and erasers in their dollar section - I'm going to save these for his birthday in March. I bought some puzzles for those rainy days; on clearance at Walgreens. Walmart surprised me with the center games I found - one is bubblegum math and the other is sandwich pieces that deal with blends. I wrapped up my shopping with an apple-shaped name badge (dollar section at Target - it's the first place I go every time!) and a mustache pencil box from Walmart. I'm going to have several different themes this year, mustache being one of them :)
