Take a Peek at What I Bought During the TpT Sale

Hello, Friends!

My biggest problem...I need more money.  Ha! Don't we all! But, I participated in the big TpT Back to School sale. I actually shopped yesterday and today.  And...that's all the money I can spend.  For now! 

I looked over my TpT wish list tons of times.  It was SO hard to decide what to buy.  It was extremely difficult this year since I'm going to a new grade level.  So many awesome things to choose from! So, I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' to show y'all what I did decide to buy.


First up is Blair Turner's 3rd grade Common Core Interactive Notebooks Bundle.  Y'all, this is amazing!  I love using math journals and this will be just what I need to continue using them in my class.  


Next, I purchased The Brown Bag Teacher's Reading Response Letters.  I wanted to incorporate letter writing into my writing center this year.  Our school does Reader's Workshop for 3-5, but I want to try to merge Reader's Workshop and Daily 5.  Still trying to figure that out.  I think her product will be a great addition to my writing center.  I LOVE the examples that she has in her packet as well as the template to help get students started with their letter.  Love this! I am excited about reading my student's letters this year!

Then, I bought Ashleigh's Spiral Language Review Task Cards Bundle.  These will be a great addition in my WORD center.  I love how she starts out by reviewing 2nd grade language standards and moving in to the 3rd grade standards.  I cannot wait to get these printed and laminated!

Last, I didn't have to purchase my last item.  Why? TpT credits!  Y'all, leave feedback on your purchases!!  You earn points and can get items for free! Plus, we LOVE reading your feedback. 

The last item comes again from Ashleigh.  I may have to buy her whole store.  She's definitely going to be one of my go to people for 3rd grade stuff.  I bought (with my TpT points) her Super Testers Weekly Math Practice.  This will be great to practice those test taking skills since I will be administering the PASS test this year. Ugh! I needed this packet to help get my students ready.  She has one for language arts which I will be buying soon.  {I need pay day to come.}

I hope y'all found some great resources to use in your classroom and didn't break the bank like I did. ;-) Link up with Blog Hoppin' and show us what you bought!

Lots of love,


  1. I'm moving to third this year as well and picked up so many new resources. I love Ashleigh and Blair's stuff!
