TpT Boost Sale!

Wow!  I forgot how exhausting back to school season can be!  I am way behind on all of the fun stuff like blogs, Pinterest and Facebook.

There's some good news!  TpT is throwing a boost sale!

I've actually extended my sale to include tomorrow too.  I can't count the times where I've forgotten to buy something during the sale even though I've seen the advertisements everywhere.

Now that I've met my students, there's a few more things I want to pick up.  I have to say that this is the smartest bunch of firsties!  I need somethings to challenge them!

Here are a few highlight from my store.

Banners & Peacemakers FREEBIE

It's B2S time!  I've spent the last few days setting up my classroom.  Once it's all finished, I'll be sure to give a full tour.  But in the meantime, I wanted to share a few freebies.

While I've always had a dedicated wall for math, I never officially labeled it.  I didn't want to spend time cutting out die cut letters and laminating, so I made a larger banner.  Less time cutting = happy teacher.

Here's a view of the reading bulletin board.

You can download the banners HERE.

If you're in the midst of lesson planning for the first few days of school, I encourage you to check out Cara Caroll's peacemaker post.  I cannot make posters as pretty as hers, so I made these instead.  Scroll to the bottom to download them for free!

You can download the posters HERE.

Winner Wednesday & What I Bought

I love linking up with Jennifer from A Dab of Glue Will Due for Winner Wednesday.  It's the easiest giveaway to enter!

This month you can win a set of Weather Posters: Using Real Images.

I used these for the first time this past school year and my students could not stop staring at them (in a good way).  The posters opened the door to questions and discussions.  It was wonderful to see the students become interested in what we were studying in science.

All you have to do to win is enter the Rafflecopter below.  No extensive following - just leave your name and email address so I can contact you.

If you don't win, the posters will be on sale through Friday. :)

Now, for another linkup!  If I'm being honest, I use to quickly gaze over these but then I started finding some new authors, products, and blogs!  I hope you'll take a peak into what I bought at the TpT store.  You can click on each picture to take you to the direct link.

I ditched my old Scholastic graphic organizers in favor of something new and fresh!

Time to brighten up my room with new posters!

Spicing up my reading instruction with these products!
