Currently and a Little "Shop" Talk

I {heart} Farley's Currently over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade and I am a few days behind...ok like a week, but who's counting? 

So now, its "Shop" Talk time!  Did you pack your TpT cart to the brink like me?  I started off being so good and then caved at the last minute.  First I stopped by a few of my favorite shops and purchased  a few items from my wish list like February and March Songs and Poems by Jodi Southard, Jen Jones' Label It, Fonts and Vocabulary Word Sets and Mind Your B's and D's by Lori Rosenburg.

Then I started shopping for my intervention group which includes higher level comprehension to challenge the on-level and above level sweeties.  I came across this unit by Teacher to the Core.


I am pulling other resources to build on the heroes, and the kids LOVED it this week!  I am excited to share more nonfiction with them and build their comprehension skills.  You can check this unit out HERE.

If you have made it to the end of this post, I have something for you!  I posted my Reading and Spelling Patterns  BOAT RACE (Long a-silent e) unit last weekend and I am giving it away three units to the first 3 people to leave a comment about their favorite purchase or wish list item AND their email address. You can check it out on TpT HERE!


So happy tomorrow is Friday!

  1. Hi Tammy ! Always room for practicing with those long a silent e words
    fingers crossed!
    Going Nutty!

  2. Hi Tammy!!! I have your syllable -le packet on my wishlist :) I love all of your spelling packets!! Thanks so much for sharing.


  3. That Hero packet looks awesome! I'm going to have to check that one out. Currently my TpT wishlist is filled with graphics from The 3am Teacher and Ashley Hughes. But we've been so sick at my house that I missed the SUPER sale (sigh). To make myself feel better for missing that I loaded up on some graphics from KPM Doodles (she's having a sale too!). I love the boat race game, especially since I have a little firstie at home :)
