Resources That Keep Me Afloat

Hey y'all! 
I'm so excited about this little blog hop that involves so many of my favorite owl bloggers and their favorite resources. These girls are super sweet, super funny, super smart, and uber creative! Doesn't get better than that...really. I'm so lucky to call them friends...not only do they listen to my rants (right, Alisha?!)...they also hook me up with some amazing resources...being that this is my first year teaching 3rd grade...they have literally been my life savers! Love, love, love them! 

So without further ado...
My friend Tessa over at Tales from Outside the Classroom is a genius at these Math Warm-Ups.
This product has been invaluable in my classroom...I love the short warm-ups and the fact that it has 5 different skills on each page. My kiddos don't get bored of reviewing the same skill because Tessa provides a variety...and they're all aligned to the Common Core! Isn't that fantastic?! If you'd like to see more of this terrific resource...click on the image above and it'll take you directly to it. ;) 

My lovely friends Alisha and Stephanie are my go-to girls for thematic resources.
You really can't go wrong with any of their products...those girls are amazingly talented. 

Please click on the images to learn more about these great resources. 

I'm such a lucky girl...truly blessed really to have such awesome friends. 
Love them to pieces! 

In honor of these fabulous ladies and all the help they've given me...I'm having a little giveaway here on my blog.
I'm offering you a chance to win your choice of ANY resource from my own little store, just leave a comment below with the name of an item that keeps YOU afloat (it doesn't have to be a TpT resource...but I wouldn't be surprised if it is). ;) Don't forget to leave your email in the comment...and make sure you're following my 'lil ole blog. You can follow by email, Blog Lovin' or Google Friend Connect...totally up to you. 

Here are a few resources that might be able to keep you afloat in the next few weeks.

    TPT keeps me afloat time after time. Whenever I can't find something I need for a lesson, that is the first I go to find something and I have never been disappointed. The teachers are all amazing and they have great freebies too.

    I totally love and use "The Busy Teacher's Best Friend Bundle"
    By Katie King- Queen of the First. It is my go to for reinforcement of Math and Literacy Core skills.
    I do not have a lot of resources to teach Fairy Tales, so your "Once Upon a Time {a Fairy Tales Unit for Little Learners}" would be a wonderful beginning for me! Thanks.

    After 11 years of teaching Grades 4+, I volunteered to come down to the primary division!!! My journey with my Grade 2 kidlettes has been nothing short of AMAZING so far <3. That being said, my colleagues and TpT (including your store!!) have been my life preservers this year!! I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to be the LUCKY recipient of your "All in the Family" fact families mini-unit <3 <3 <3. It is such a difficult concept for young learners to master, so this PHENOMENAL resource would be absolutely PERFECT <3. Thank you for considering me, Gladys =). leafsgirl@rogers.com.

    First Grade Buddies have their math bag bundles K-2 that have been keeping me afloat during my first year of implementing guided math with stations. So darn handy. What did we do before TPT?! Now that I'm ready to tackle Close Reading, I'm so thankful again to have a go-to location for wonderful resources (like your nursery rhyme product that I just purchased!) What love to win another product from you if it works out. :) laura.scheunemann@wrps.net

    I love following blogs like yours on Bloglovin, Pinterest, and Facebook. That and the wonderful resources you create and share are what keeps me afloat. It's awesome that teachers are using technology to work together and make sure each child loves learning. I would love to win something from your store! Thank you so much.
