Ready, Set, Shop!

I have to admit, I have been shopping, browsing and yes even stalking several TpT stores of my favorite blogger friends.  I have even added two new units to my TpT store over the past two days.  I bundled 4 of my units into  Reading and Spelling Patterns Part 3 at a reduced price.  This includes Over the Moon (Vowel sound/oo/), Jellyfish Fun (Long vowel e spelled y and ie), Aren't We Cute (Long u, Silent e), and Rope It (Long o, Silent e). 

I also finished Nice Robot {Long i-Spelled i and Long o-Spelled o}and listed it tonight!  I am so excited that it is our spelling pattern for next week and I am actually a few days ahead of myself!

I have to give a shout out to Natalie at Teachery Tidbits.  Last night, she had a flash giveaway on Facebook for her newest unit, Life's a Beach and I won!  I already downloaded and printed a few of the games and the kids are going to {love} them!  If you would like to see more, head on over and check it out!

And last but not least, I have purchased a few favorites from Jodi over at Fun in First.  I snagged her April Poems and Songs, April Fluency, May Poems and Songs and May Fluency packets to wrap up our year.  The kids adore her poems and add them to our poetry notebook weekly.  The fluency packets are extra practice for homework and they match their poetry notebook.  That is a win-win because it allows them to share what they are doing with mom and dad at home as well as feel successful at home and school as they build their fluency.  Jodi has just posted a bundled package for A Year of Poetry.

So now its off to cut out some laminating, sleep, teach and then shop again.  As always, I am giving away 3 copies of my newest unit, Nice Robot,  to the first 3 people to leave a comment about what they have bought (or added to their wishlist) along with their EMAIL address.
