Leap Year Sale and Some New Products

Hey all!  So...its been have I been?  I wish I could tell you I was on a deserted island swimming with dolphins and basking in the sun, but, alas, I have just been WORKING!  Working at school, working around the house, working on Frog Street stuff, and working on a few new products for YOU!  All is good though and I have some good news for you too.  First off, Teachers Pay Teachers is having a SALE and so am I!!!  

Everything at my store is 20% off and TPT is offering 10% (use promo code: L2P9Y) which gives you a 28% discount on all purchases!  It doesn't get any better than that.  Click here to get to my store.
 I also have a few new products to tell you about.  We have been working on Main Idea in my classroom and I have added a whole group/small group lesson as well as a reading center kit to my teachers pay teachers store.  Both are for sale for $2.50 each.

Main Idea Story Sacks

Each bag includes a mini story broken into four sections.  There are 6 sacks/stories included in the kit.  As a group, you and the kids will read through the story, sequence the story, and decide what the main idea is.  The sack is self checking by looking at the bottom of the bag.  SO CUTE!  Check it out here-Main Idea Story Sacks

Main Idea Mini File Folder Center

This cute little center will sure get your little friends excited about main idea.  It is also a teacher favorite because it is so easy to make.  All you do is print, cut, glue, laminate, cut again, and place in a center such as the reading center.  The mini folders are easy to use as well as self checking.  This kit comes with 2 levels of directions to help you differentiate a bit.  ALSO SO CUTE!  Check it out here-Name the Main Idea File Folder Fun!

That's all until next time friends!  I hope not to stay away so long this time.

Happy shopping and happy teaching,

More Guided Reading Fun With Sight Words

Hey friends!

Well, I just posted a new product to Teachers Pay Teachers that I would love to tell you about.  I have uploaded a kit to go with my guided reading club Rainbow Reader's Book Club.  This kit is all about sight words.  We all know how important sight words are to emergent reader, but it can be kind of tedious to practice them so....I came up something that my kiddos really love so, I improved it and made it for you! 

Basically how I do it is all laid out in the kit, where I give detailed directions.   This kit includes color-coded sight words (216 of them) that you print, cut, laminate, and hole punch to put on rings.  Also included are assessment sheets, a student recording book, as shown, award pages for passing each color group, award page for completion of all cards, 2 options on how to display your kiddos progress and directions for use.  WHEW!  All that for $5.00.  

This product will help your kiddos to be successful with their sight words and get them reading!!!  They will enjoy the challenge of working up the rainbow as they earn eight different levels of sight words.
