Resources That Keep Me Afloat

This week, my friends and I are sharing resources in our classroom that keep us afloat. I have to say that TPT has made my teaching so much better and saved me so much time. 

I have to say that one of my favorite products that I have made are my monthly centers. My students do these every day during our reading rotations. These centers provide great review of skills that I have taught and they are fun for the students.

The ELA Common Core review centers were an amazing way to review important Common Core skills before the big test last year. I can't wait to roll these out soon.

I used these centers in partners to review those important ELA skills that needed more practice.

I have also started using my math centers during math rotations. These are really great for review.

I also use a ton of Amanda Madden's resources in my classroom. I've always thought she was amazing ever since she created Teachers Clubhouse. One of the things that I love about her store is her easy to use grammar centers. They are so simple to make and provide great review. Since I use my centers also, I use her centers as a review during my reading group time. These are great games to play together with your low kids and awesome review for all the other kids.

 These are the centers for adjectives, multiple meaning words, and pronouns. All you have to do is glue the cover page to a manila envelope and put all the pieces and the recording sheet inside the envelope. I am all about easy these days!

Her newest resource looks absolutely amazing too! Who doesn't hate getting homework ready each week and then having it not done correctly or done at all. Ugh! Drives me crazy.

This is something that I am definitely going to start using. She has a whole process for getting homework returned and I believe that the kids will love this homework instead of boring math worksheets.

Okay, now's the time for a quick giveaway. Leave me a comment on this post (with your email) and I'll choose one person to win an item of their choice from my store. The winner will be announced Friday morning. Best of luck!


Don't forget that Thursday and Friday are sale days on TPT! You can stock up on these resources and lots of other resources from my Owl friends. Check out the link up below for more lifesaving resources.
