A Sale and New Finds

It's the end of the month and it's almost my birthday! To celebrate, I am holding a sale in my TPT store. Click on the picture to head to my store.

In other news, I hate teaching quotation marks. They are so hard for 2nd graders. This week, quotation marks was one of our skills and I was about to pull my hair out teaching it one day. I think most of my kiddos finally got it yesterday and this video is why. BEWARE!!! This song will stick in your head all day long!

I found a great website when I was perusing Pinterest for more noun ideas for next week.  I just saw that there is a subscription fee for some of the services but I think the nouns activities are free. The video is very cute!

I found some great pens at Target and they are only $3.99 for the entire set. I love these pens! They write wonderfully and I love all the colors.

Anything new that you are loving right now???


  1. Hi Courtney! I love to use pens like that for grading papers. Then I don't have the bleed problem that some markers cause. :) Maybe I am not looking closely enough, but I don't see a way to link to the noun website. What is the address? (Or just point me to the right spot to click.)

    1. I completely forgot to link the site. It's linked now. Sorry about that!

  2. Dude . . . gotta check out those pens. I have a serious office supply problem and these look right up my alley!!! I am really lovin' the cooler mornings right now. I know it isn't school related, but that little sweater I have to throw on in the morning just makes me smile.

  3. I've heard of Grammaropolis, but didn't know they had songs and videos. I LOVE them! Thanks for sharing! I love the quote video, too!

  4. I've never heard of Grammaropolis, thanks for sharing! My second graders are working on nouns now and this will be very helpful.
