{Currently and a Super Sale!}

Linking up for my first ever Currently!
That's exciting!

I am also linking up with Ashley over at School Supply Addict for the SUPER SUNDAY SALE going on this weekend on TpT. I am pretty excited for this sale. I have about ten things in my cart, ready to go!

If you're interested in any of my items, they will be a total of 18% off when you use the code SUPER on the site before checkout. My sale actually starts today, so if you don't feel like waiting until tomorrow, you'll still get 10% off!
Here are some things worth checking out:
I love my Reading Log Pack!
Looking to put a nightly reading log in place for your classroom? This pack will help get you started and provide you with all the documents needed {and more} to make it run smoothly!

{In this pack}
Teacher Information Sheet
~My tips and tricks for putting pack in place
Parent Letter
~Keep parents informed when it comes to your expectations
Reading Log Weekly Tracker Sheet
~Copy this front to back with SSS for the students to keep
Super Sentence Starters
~Copy this front to back with the Weekly Log so students never
say "I didn't know what to write!"
Teacher Grading Tracker
~I print these and put them on a clipboard for easy and quick
grading each day of the week. Do it this way and you won't be
stuck grading 20 logs with 4 entries each on Friday :)

My Guided Reading Menu Pack is awesome for differentiation!
Looking for a GENERAL item to use in your guided reading groups? Looking for something that will work with any text? Basal or Chapter Books?
Looking for something that challenges your highs AND your lows?

If you answered YES!! This Guided Reading Pack is for you! I made this as an alternative to those huge Comp. packets we used to give with new chapter books. I was finding myself covering all of those Comp. questions during mini lessons, so this is my alternative.

I make this a packet for all of my students. Then, when meeting with different leveled groups, I steer my lower performers to the lower level thinking activities (Character Portrait, Sequencing, Vocabulary or Literary Elements)

When meeting with my high performing students I steer them towards the higher level thinking activities (Alternate Ending, Sequencing (can be used as both), Compare/Contrast, etc.)

My middle guys I would like to see doing a little of both.

You can use this however you'd like. I like to give my students the choice to choose their three and then I also have a spot where they can let me know which one they thought they did their personal best on. DIFFERENTIATION everywhere! :)

My Spring Fever Writing is also a favorite too..
Get this pack now because it covers Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and also has other Spring related writing prompts too. 
There are graphic organizers and final draft paper for each prompt!

So, go check out my store this weekend. I know I can't wait to see what everyone else is having a sale on. It's a good thing I just got paid and I'm snowed in ;)


  1. I also just did my first ever linky with Farley. Congrats on starting 31. One of my best friend does it too, and I love buying all the cute bags she sells!

  2. Awesome! I'll go check out your blog :)

    I just started and I am beyond pumped about it.. I'm going to try to not get too crazy during the school year, but I already have a couple of parties lined up. I just love it. Being a mom AND a teacher, it just makes so much sense!

    Thanks, Amy!

  3. I'm going to a 31 party tonight- such cute stuff! Good luck starting up your business. I'm going to check out some of your products. They look great! I'm a new follower and a 4th grade teacher!

    1. Thanks! I always love finding blogs that are right around my grade level. I'll head over and check out yours, too.

      Thanks for the comment :)

    1. Thank you so much!

      Me too, I think it's going to be really fun :)

  5. Thanks for stopping by our blog! We love finding "upper grade" blogs since we teach 4th. I taught 3rd for 11 years, though, and that's where my heart is.

    Your blog design is super cute!! I LOVE 31 and I wanted to start selling too but I just can't drum up the time! And I'm all about retail therapy!!

    Your products are so cute!! Where do you get most of your clipart? Do you mind replying back to our blog or by email? It's sooooo it Ashley Hughes?

    We are now following you! So good to meet you!

    1. Hi!!!! I just replied back on your blog with some of the clip art places...

      And honestly with 31, I just got into it, but I'm planning on trying to get about one party a month until summer, then I'll try to do more then to make some more money. You only have to do $200 every THREE months to remain a consultant, so it's not bad at all. Plus you get a ton of free stuff. I don't know what state you're in, but if you consider signing up you can always join my team :) Check out my website:

      LOVE SOME GOOD CLIP ART! I started following you girls! <3

    2. I love clipart too! We usually use Scrappin Doodles. We just got the glitter backgrounds from Fancy Dog and we are in LOVE!! It's so cute!

      We live in Georgia. $200 a month isn't so bad...hmmm. And I love their products!! Something for me to chew on! Thanks for replying!!

    3. Girl, it's 200 every THREE months. Even better :) So low maintenance. That's part of the reason I joined. I figured, even I could do that.

      Scrappin Doodles is awesome. I may have to check out the glitter backgrounds. I love glitter :)

  6. Excited to find another Ohio teacher blogger! Glad I found your site! :)

    Eclectic Educating

    1. Yay! I just added your blog, too.

      I love that Valentine Main Idea sheet you have.. We just did a unit test and I was blown away by how many of my kids froze and bombed main idea. Bleh!

      I think I'll have to do that with them!

  7. Your blog is seriously adorable--I'm so glad I found you through your comment on my blog. I know EXACTLY what you mean about retail therapy. I'm dropping my 10 year old off at a friend's in 15 minutes and dragging my poor 8 year old to the mall. Luckily he's a trooper. I'm pretty sure gazing at Alex and Ani bracelets isn't his idea of a rockin' Saturday, but his Pinkberry reward is quelling his urge to complain right now :)

    1. THANK YOU! :)

      I keep fighting the urge to get my little girl out in the snow to head to Target to just look around. Every time I go to "look around" it ends up being around a $50 trip.

      And how did I not know about Alex and Ani?! Just looked it up and OH. MY. WORD.

      Maybe I can just do some online shopping ;)

  8. Hey girl!! I just found your blog through 'currently' and am soooo glad I did. It is fabulous and I am so happy to be a new follower :) I hate those pesky weekends that only last 2 days, yuk! Weekdays should only be M-Th if you ask me. Your products look UH-mazing and I've added something new to my Sunday Sale wish list!


    1. I just went over and started following your blog, too cute!

      Thanks for the super nice compliments! I look forward to checking out all of your posts! <3

  9. This was my 1st Currently linky also! Kinda cathartic! :)

    1. Very cool.. I like seeing all the blogs that link up!

  10. Thanks for your comment. Good luck with the sale!
