I Teach Second Blog Giveaway

 Don't you love it when you get a gift card?  Guilt-free spending / splurging is the best!  Target, Starbucks, Amazon and Teachers Pay Teachers... they are some my favorite places!  How about you?  I am so excited to be joining in with my friends at iTeach Second for an AMAZING GIVEAWAY to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week!  It's YOUR WEEK so enjoy all of the spoilin' that you deserve!  The fun starts NOW!  

Read on and I will tell you what will happen if you give THIS teacher a gift card!

Yay for a gift card giveaway!  I know winning one of these would make MY special week even SWEETER!
 Let me tell you what I would spend them on!

Even though I have an entire storage room full of books, I can always make room for more.  I read aloud every day and usually plan my instruction for reading and written response around the story or nonfiction selection of the day.  This book, Stick and Stone is one of many on my wish list from Amazon! 

I just love YOOBI!  Have you seen the new line of school supplies at Target?  The bright colors are great and I know the kids would love them too!  These will go in a special spot for my WOW WORK winner to use for the day! 

 I have too many items on my TPT wish list to tell you about all of them! My favorite sellers just happen to be my blogging besties too!  

I would love to have We're all Poets by Amy Lemons! 

We're All Poets {A Poetry Writing Unit}

Projects and poetry writing together in one pack! Perfect!

I also know my class will need work with high frequency words next fall. I plan to use this great Sight Word Activities Pack by Bright Concepts 4 Teachers.

Sight Word Activities Pack- SECOND GRADE

I use monthly themed pick-a-prompt writing centers during my writers' workshop but
I think these topic cards by A Cupcake for the Teacher would be great to have ready for independent practice during Daily 5 Work on Writing! 

writing topic cards! {PLUS vocab}

Right now, we are working on fractions. How fun it would be to play Fraction Bingo! This great create-your-own bingo game is from Primarily Speaking.

Hands-On Fraction Bingo! (Common Core Aligned)

See what I mean? 
 I could go on all day with what I would buy from TPT! If you want to check these out too, just click on the cover image!

It's no secret that I love coffee!  My favorite in the winter is a Pumpkin Spice Latte and in the summer, I order up a Mocha Frappuccino!  I'm beyond excited because a BRAND NEW Starbucks just opened at the end of my street!!!! My teammates and I plan to take our work there sometime and sit at the tables outside to do our planning.  Doesn't that sound great?  I have end of the day prep this year and by 2:15 I am pretty much spent.  That little pick-me-up is just what I need to get through the afternoon slump!


Friends, I hope you all have a GREAT Teacher Appreciation Week!
