What Are You Wishing For?

It's almost here!! The much-anticipated TPT Back to School Sale will be this coming Sunday and Monday, August 18 and 19. Everything in my TPT store will be 20% off, even my bundles! On top of that, TPT will take an extra 10% off the sale prices, to give you a total of 28% off the original price! (To get TPT's discount, you must use the code BTS13 at check-out.)

Like so many other teachers, I've been busy all summer creating, not to mention loading up my own wish list with a ton of fabulous resources. I don't know how I will choose which ones are must-haves for the start of the year... I want them all! 

I am linking up with Ideas by Jivey for a fun Wish List Linky.

The idea is to share which two of your products have been wish-listed the most, followed by the top item on your personal wish-list.

 It gives regular practice with so many Common Core skills that need daily reinforcement. It's colorful, interactive, and this one file can be used all year!

My second most wish-listed product is my SMARTBoard Word Work Letter Tiles.
These templates contain infinitely-cloned letters so that you can create exactly the word work your students need. I include complete directions for how to customize the file. It is a resource that you can use all year with the whole class, in strategy groups, for literacy centers, or Daily 5 Word Work rotations.
My wish list is so-o-o-o long! I am constantly blown away by the quality of the resources that are out there, and grateful that I don't have to create them all myself! One item I will definitely be purchasing is Rachael Parlett's Nonfiction Reading Unit. This picture only shows one little part of the huge, (230 pages worth), unit! There is a 74-slide SMARTBoard presentation that goes along with all the student resources. (I love, love, love using my SMARTBoard whenever I can!) The unit integrates science curriculum with reading, with an emphasis on ecosystems. I think it will be perfect for my 4th graders!
I'd love to hear what's on your wish-list! It's a great way to learn about other sellers and find awesome resources! If you don't have a wish-list yet, go make one! You won't find a better time to stock up on high-quality resources for months to come!

(Just don't do what I did last sale and forget to use the TPT code at check-out and miss out on the extra 10% off...yeah...true story.) Happy Shopping this Sunday and Monday, and remember...BTS13!
