Sweet Deals on Amazing Products!

I was just thinking today I have not bought one SINGLE teacher store teaching book in the last two years. I can find EVERYTHING I need at TpT and it is so much better than some homogenized teacher book.   I have bought some theory books - the latest being PBL Toolbox (love it)- but nothing dealing with content.   That makes me happy!  I love that my money is going to other teachers and love the idea of my products being used across the nation in other classrooms!

So my big finds during yesterday's big sale were
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Sun-The-Moon-The-Earth-and-The-Stars-Science-Resource-Unit by Yvonne Dixon.
 
I love how organized this unit is,   the great table of contents and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the essential question cards.   I will use these not only to do the activities in the packet,  but to give students some pre-assignments to answer these using their netbooks.   LOVE!   So fabulous!
 

 

I also love this awesome resource from Lisa Mattes - http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Common-Core-Crunch-February-ELA-CCSS-Printables .

 
We don't even do Common Core in Texas (CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?)  but my friend Cathy and I have decided we think we should,  so we try to follow both Texas TEKS (c-scope) and common core.   This packet is FULL of awesome activities to go with every February event!  I LOVE it.   Can't wait to see what she comes up with for March!
 
 
What did you get???  Link up here to share!
 
 
 
And in case you didn't get to shopping - my entire store is still on sale through tomorrow night! 
 
 

Pin It!

  2. I completely agree! I love TPT! I like that you can get specfic units instead of having to buy a whole book of things that you will never use just to get a few worksheets you do love.
