{Show Us What You Bought!}

So, this past Sunday was the big mega sale on Teachers Pay Teachers AND the two minute return of Destiny's Child. WHATTTT???? I almost died when Michelle and Kelly flew out of the stage bottom. I was back in 2003 cruising to Softball practice in my friend's LeBaron.
EMBARRASSING, but we were are bootilicious.

I bought a couple of things that I have been wanting to buy for quite some time but didn't want to come up off the money for them. I'll be honest, sometimes when I see something that I need for just one tiny thing, I think twice about paying so much for it, but that's why this sale was such a great thing. Perfect timing.

I purchased the Story Element fans from Runde's Room.
I can't wait to use them with our guided reading mini-lessons and groups.

Natalie Kay's Literature Circles Pack! 
I started using this Monday of this week while I'm pulling kids to work on fluency. Love it, my kids are liking working independently and at their own pace. I love that includes two rubrics, one for student evaluation and one for the teacher. Perfect!

Common Core Fluency Homework from Second Story Window.
This is probably my favorite thing I purchased. I may be teaching second grade next year and if I do, it will be well worth the $12 I dropped on it Sunday.
I have some lower students in my room and I have been using this (since Monday) to help them build fluency. It's their homework for the week and after reading with them each day, they are already starting to improve. I love that there's a spot where the parents can time them each night, also.

What did you buy??


  1. I totally agree girl! I was super excited about the Destiny's Child return ha (so embarrassing)! Looks like you got some fabulous things :)

    1. Destiny's Child was just too good.. Haha!

      PS I was going through my TPT wish list Sunday and I definitely have items from your shop on there. Small world :)

  2. I'm going to be attending a staff development session on literature circles next week. I will have to go and check out that packet after the session!


    1. The only thing is I didn't see a part about assigning jobs for students in the groups, but I'm not really using it for that anyways.

      I think traditional literature circles have you providing each student with a job so they stay on task! We'll see!

  3. You got some great buys. I totally forgot about those story element fans. Gonna have to put those in my cart again.

  4. Thanks! I'm really excited about them. I love finding things that I can really make work for me! :)

  5. AHHH!! I definitely just bought the fluency homework packet as well. What a FIND!! :) Sooooo excited. I will be teaching 3rd next year. I'm crossing my fingers that she has one made for that grade. Going to look right now! Thanks for sharing :)


  6. I don't think there's one for third, I teach third now, maybe I should make one ;)

  7. Too funny!! Super sale and super blast from the past!
