Winner Winner!

A few weeks ago I found out I won a giveaway over at Bright Concepts 4 Teachers for her "Blogiversary".  I was beyond excited!!!!  I NEVER win anything!!  And this giveaway was A-MAZING!!!!

So, I thought I'd give ya'll a peak at some of the fantastic things I received (and can't wait to use with my kiddos next year!!)

Jaime over at Bright Concepts 4 Teachers has some fantastic units in her TPT store.  It made it really difficult to choose!!  The first product I chose was Beachside Mysteries.  This unit will go great with our mysteries unit we are doing.  I can't wait to try it out!

The second unit I chose was Earth Day Love.  This will be perfect for our recycling unit!

The third unit I chose was Spring Writing Prompts and Craftivity.  I can't wait for next April to use these writing prompts with my kiddos!!  

Seriously, it was really hard to choose from all of Jaime's great products.  There are several on my wishlist I need to purchase!

One of the wonderful bloggers that was part of the give away was Creative Lesson Cafe.  You must check out her store - Kidsrcute.  The first product I won from her was the Reading Comprehension Companion.

The printables in this unit can be used with your reading instruction as whole group, small group or independent reading.  This unit is aligned with the common core standards and can be used with a variety of levels.

The next unit I received from Creative Lesson Cafe was a Martin Luther King Bundle.  This will be great to use in January when we are studying Dr. King.

The third unit from Creative Lesson Cafe was Math Whiz.  This common core aligned unit has story problem cards and worksheets that would be great to use in centers.

The fourth unit from Creative Lesson Cafe was Fun Food Poems.  I have a poetry journal with my students and I can't wait to add these fun food poems!

And the fifth unit I received from Creative Lesson Cafe was Book Club Question Cards.  These will be great to use with my guided reading groups!

Erin over at The Open Door Classroom has these amazing "kid friendly" common core posters.  She has taken the common core standards and written them with "kid friendly" version on one side and the teacher version on the opposite side.  These will make posting the standards in my room each day much easier!!

Heather over at Second Grade Perks sent me the Daily Common Core Language Warm-Ups and the Daily Common Core Math Warm-Ups.  These units will make a perfect addition to our morning work!

Tania over at My Second Sense sent me the cutest End of the Year Award Buttons that are editable.  There are 40 buttons that will be fantastic to use with my kids.  She also makes them in Spanish!

Aimee over at Primarily Speaking sent me her End of the Year Activities for 2nd Grade - Common Core Aligned.  This unit has so many activities for the end of the year that I don't even know where to begin!  There are several writing activities, including "How to be a Successful Second Grader" and "Second Grade Rocks".  

Kate over at EduKate and Inspire sent me her unit called iStudent: An All About Me Book.  My students are obsessed with the iPads and iPhones, so this unit will fit in great with our biography unit.  I am going to have them use it when they write an autobiography about themselves.

Storie over at Stories by Storie sent me her Keep on Rollin Bundle.  This bundle has several fun math games that students can play with dice.  I can't wait to incorporate these into our math centers. 

Dana over at Fun in 1st Grade sent me her unit called Writing through the Year.  This unit includes monthly writing prompts for August-May.  It also includes a writing rubric.  I can't wait to use these!!

As you can see, this was an A-MAZING giveaway with some FANTASTIC units!  Be sure to check out these talented ladies blogs and TPT stores!  All you need to do is click on their blog names highlighted in pink to discover their great blogs or the pictures of their products to get to their TPT stores.
