I am linking up with Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera with Saturday Snapshots.  Unofficially, this was my last week of summer vacation.  Monday is the day we are allowed to get into our classrooms and as I moved classrooms AGAIN, I am sure I will be unpacking ALL week!  Teachers here officially go back on August 12th.

Need I say more?

Today marks Day 4 with my Back to School Wishlist Sale.  I am joining Tamara from Mrs. Russell's Room and the gang with out top wishlisted items in our store and passing the savings onto you!

Today's deal is extra sweet because you can pick it up for only $1.00!  I can't even get a Diet Coke for $1.00!  Today's featured product is Reading and Spelling Patterns-Rainy Day Long A Game.

My kids love routine and I love being able to teach as they work independently (Ha!) so I have made this game similar to my others.  Just like , "Bang!", the cards are put in the middle of the group.  The children take turns picking a card and reading it to the group.  If the child get it correct, he/she keep the card.  If not, it goes back to the middle discard pile.  The player with the most cards wins...but watch out for the "Bang!" cards:)  You might lose a turn, get to pick again or even lose all your cards!  the kids love this twist on the game:)

So head on over and check it out and get 20% off the price for TODAY only!
